Pac-10 Position Breakdown: Wide Receiver – Arizona State Sun Devils

By Sam Saig, July 19, 2009 9:58 am

Although the dissapointment of last year’s 5-7 season still resonates in Tempe, Arizona State returns a confident group of talented wide receivers that are among the most experienced in the Pac-10. This could very well be the strength of the offense, and head coach Dennis Erickson has been searching for new ways to get them the ball. Assuming incoming quarterback Danny Sullivan gets at least a little protection from the offensive line, this unit of wideouts should enjoy a productive 2009 campaign.

The Sun Devils return three of their top four receivers from 2008 (losing Mike Jones to graduation). All three are upper classmen, and should assist Sullivan in his transition as the new starting QB.

One of the conference’s most experienced receivers is sure-handed senior Chris McGaha. The 6-1 199 pound wideout has 112 career receptions for 1,569 yards and five touchdowns. Last season, he finished second on the team in catches and yards with 35 receptions for 501 yards and one touchdown. He had career highs in 2007 with 61 catches for 830 yards, which earned him honorable mention for All-Pac-10 honors.

McGaha is a fan favorite for the Sun Devil faithful because of his unique ability to make catches that seem impossible. The Phoenix (AZ) native has abnormally long fingers, which he uses to stab almost any ball in his area, often using only one hand. His crisp route running and deceptive speed make him ASU’s number one receiver.
