Arizona State redshirt junior WR Jalen Harvey caught eight passes for 130 yards in a 37-35 victory over Oregon on Saturday.

Harvey (6/1/203) was a standout over the spring for the Sun Devils, but he had just eight catches coming into the game. He equaled that output on Saturday, having no trouble getting open against a porous Ducks secondary. His big play of the night was a 63-yard strike from quarterback Manny Wilkins that set up a Sun Devil touchdown. If ASU is going to be a bowl team in 2017, they'll need more big games like this from Harvey.

Arizona State redshirt junior QB Manny Wilkins threw for 349 yards and a score and ran for two more scores in a 37-35 victory over Oregon on Saturday.

Wilkins (6'3/200) has kept the Sun Devils in every game this season, and this time he did enough for them to get the victory over the Ducks. His first score was an eight-yard scamper that put ASU up front 7-0 early in the first. Later in the quarter he found N'Keal Harry from three yards out, upping the lead to 14-7. His second rushing touchdown was two yard burst early in the third quarter, and the Sun Devils led 24-14. Wilkins has some accuracy issues, but he's been able to make plays with his legs and arm, and he just might be able to lead ASU into bowl contention.

Arizona State sophomore WR N'Keal Harry caught seven passes for 170 yards and a touchdown in a 37-35 upset victory over Oregon on Saturday.

Over Harry's last two games, Harry has caught 20 passes for 318 yards and two scores. That'll do. Harry is a special talent, and he burned the Oregon defense several times in the upset win. His touchdown was a three-yard score coming from quarterback Manny Wilkins late in the first to give ASU a 14-7 lead. The Sun Devils are going to have to win shootout games all year because of their poor defense, but Harry is talented enough to give them a chance to do just that.
Sep 24 - 1:41 AM

Arizona State redshirt sophomore WR John Humphrey (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's showdown with Oregon.

This one has to be somewhat frustrating for the Sun Devils. Humphrey went off for 7-123-1 in the team's season-opening win over New Mexico State at the end of August, but has sat out each of the team's past two games due to a knee injury. There is no current timetable for his return to action.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that NFL scouts believe Arizona State senior RB Kalen Ballage "could develop into a feature back at the next level."

"The biggest concern at this point is his pure speed, and it’s something to keep an eye on in predraft workouts," Pauline wrote. To that point, Arizona State head coach Todd Graham predicted over the summer that Ballage would run 4.4 or better in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine at 230-plus pounds. Ballage (6'3) is a notable physical freak. He's been clocked at 21.6 mph, boasts a 37-inch vertical jump, and can do the broad jump in just under 10 feet.
Sep 22 - 1:13 PM

Arizona State sophomore WR N'Keal Harry caught 13 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown in a 52-45 loss to Texas Tech on Saturday.

After two solid -- but not spectacular -- games to open the year, Harry had his breakout game. Sun Devils quarterback looked his way early and often, as you can tell from the stats above. His touchdown was a 21-yarder early in the fourth that tied the game at 45-45. It might be a long year for the Sun Devils, but the 6-foot-4, 216-pound Harry will have a chance to put up big numbers thanks to his talent and opportunity.
Sep 17 - 1:25 AM

Arizona State redshirt junior QB Manny Wilkins completed 27-for-41 passes for 326 yards and three touchdowns in a 52-45 loss to Texas Tech on Saturday.

Wilkins kept Arizona State in this game, which is more than can be said about the atrocious Sun Devils defense. After falling behind 21-3, he was able to make some impressive throws to N'Keal Harry and company, and tied things up at 45-45 with a 21-yard strike to Harry with 9:52 in the fourth. There were a couple missed throws or he would have had an even bigger night, but once again, he looked like a Pac-12 quarterback. Arizona State does not look like a Pac-12 defense, unfortunately.
Sep 17 - 1:22 AM

Arizona State redshirt sophomore WR John Humphrey (undisclosed) is questionable for Saturday's game against Texas Tech.

Arizona State HC Todd Graham says that Humphrey's injury isn't season-ending, but didn't disclose much more. We should get a bit more clarity on his status for the game against the Red Raiders as the week progresses.
Sep 11 - 8:48 PM

Arizona State senior RB Demario Richard (quadriceps) is expected to play on Saturday against Texas Tech.

Richard had just one carry against New Mexico State in the season opener before exiting with the injury, and did not play on Saturday against San Diego State. The 5-foot-10, 220-pound running back battled injuries in 2016, but ran for 1,098 yards and averaged 5.3 yards per carry as a sophomore in 2015.
Sep 11 - 5:16 PM

Arizona State junior WR Ryan Newsome (quad) is expected to play on Saturday against Texas Tech.

Newsome (5'8/186) has missed the first two games of the year with the quad injury. A speedy receiver who can make plays out of the slot, he should be a solid compliment to wideout N'Keal Harry and another weapon for quarterback Manny Wilkins to get the ball to.
Sep 11 - 5:12 PM

Arizona State redshirt junior QB Manny Wilkins completed 20-of-33 passes for 298 yards and two scores in a 30-20 loss to San Diego State.

The Sun Devils were unable to get anything going on the ground, which put pressure on Wilkins to beat the Aztecs with his arm. He wasn't quite up to the task, but there were nice moments here. He found N'Keal Harry for a five-yard score to make it 17-14 San Diego State late in the second quarter, and he found Frank Darby for a 50-yard score to make it 30-20 Aztecs in the middle of the fourth. Arizona State doesn't look like a Pac-12 contender, but Wilkins has at least looks like a competent starting quarterback so far.
Sep 10 - 2:37 AM

Arizona State LB/S Marcus Ball has stepped away from football due to epileptic seizures.

Apparently it has been an issue since 2014 when Ball was diagnosed. It is a difficult loss for the Sun Devils, as Ball was one of the more experienced members of the secondary.
Sep 7 - 10:20 AM

Arizona State senior RB Demario Richard (undisclosed) practiced on Tuesday.

Just how extensively Richard practiced is unclear, but he was present, at least. The senior back was injured on his first and only carry of Thursday's win over New Mexico State. His status for this weekend's upcoming game against San Diego State will be determined closer to kickoff.
Sep 5 - 5:51 PM

Arizona State redshirt sophomore WR John Humphrey caught seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 37-31 win over New Mexico State.

N'Keal Harry is the Sun Devils big-dog wideout, but Humphrey stole the spotlight from him on Thursday. He averaged 17.6 yards per reception in the victory, with almost half of the yardage coming on a 60-yard touchdowns pass from Manny Wilkins midway through the second quarter. The 5-foot-11, 169-pounder sat out the past season after transferring over from Oklahoma, but excelled in the team's spring game and has the potential to be a breakout performer this season. He will try to repeat Thursday's big performance when the Sun Devils do battle with San Diego State a week from Saturday.
Sep 1 - 7:14 PM

Arizona State senior RB Kalen Ballage rushed for 79 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries in Thursday's win over New Mexico State.

Ballage is also a true weapon in the receiving game, but he did not showcase that aspect of his game on Thursday, finishing with a modest two catches for 10 yards. The 6-foot-3, 222-pounder punched it into the end zone from seven yards out in the first quarter and also notched a 20-yard scoring run in the third. Fellow back Demario Richard was injured on his first carry in the contest and if Richard is out for any significant amount of time, Ballage could find himself receiving a starter's workload moving forward. Stay tuned on that front.
