Arizona State redshirt junior QB Manny Wilkins completed 12-of-19 passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 40-24 win over Oregon State.

Wilkins added 60 yards rushing on eight attempts in the easy victory. The redshirt junior went through a three-game stretch without a touchdown pass earlier this season, but has been a consistent -- if mostly unspectacular -- performer outside of that little rut. He's thrown for 2,755 yards with a 14/4 TD/INT ratio in 11 games on the year. ASU will wrap their regular season up with a showdown with in-state rival Arizona next Saturday.
Nov 18 - 6:37 PM

Arizona State senior RB Demario Richard rushed for 119 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries in Saturday's 40-24 win over Oregon State.

Richard (5'10/220) wasn't ripping off epic runs left and right in the win, but he consistently managed to accrue positive yardage on his way to leading the Sun Devils in rushing for the contest. After failing to top 100 yards in any of his first seven games this season, the senior has gone off for 433 yards in his last three contests.
Nov 18 - 6:35 PM

Arizona State sophomore WR N'Keal Harry caught six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 44-37 loss to UCLA.

Harry (6'3/210) opened the game's scoring with an innocuous seven-yard touchdown grab early in the first quarter. The two teams would proceed to put up a boatload of points while living up to the conference's defense-optional ways. After posting a promising true freshman campaign in 2016, Harry has taken exactly the sort of developmental steps you would like to see in Year 2, improving on both the receptions front -- already eight more than in 2016, with two games left to play in the regular season -- and the yardage front. Harry currently owns a 66-889-5 receiving line on the year.
Nov 12 - 12:47 PM

Arizona State senior RB Demario Richard ran for 125 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in a 44-37 loss to UCLA on Saturday.

Richard and fellow tailback Kalen Bellage were able to put up big numbers (97 yards for Bellage with a score), but the Arizona State defense reverted back to their 2016 days in this one. Richard's touchdown was a two-yard burst that gave the Sun Devils a 14-0 lead late in the first quarter. The 5-foot-10, 220-pound tailback will look to get back on the winning side next week against Oregon State.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes Arizona State senior RB Demario Richard is the "more complete back" in comparison with teammate Kalen Ballage and "much more NFL-ready."

Coming into this season, the size/speed maven Ballage was a darling of #DraftTwitter, while Richard was an afterthought. That's changed, as Richard (5'10/220) has outrushed Ballage in all but three games this year after seizing control of primary rushing duties in mid-September. Last week, Richard dropped 189 yards and a score on Colorado. "And while Richard may not have the pure athleticism of Ballage, his vision, instincts and dare I say intensity are more in line with the NFL game," Pauline wrote.
Nov 10 - 1:12 PM

Arizona State redshirt junior QB Manny Wilkins threw for two scores and 230 yards, and ran for 95 yards and a score in a 41-30 victory over Colorado on Saturday.

Wilkins wasn't accurate in this one (18-for-34), but he made big plays with his arm, and he churned out yardage with his legs. He found N'Keal Harry and Kyle Williams for touchdowns, and his one-yard touchdown plunge put the game away at 41-30 with just under a minute left. Wilkins and the Sun Devils have another friendly matchup next week against UCLA.
Nov 5 - 1:01 AM

Arizona State senior RB Demario Richard ran for 189 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in a 41-30 victory over Colorado on Saturday.

Richard (5'10/220) was excellent against the Buffaloes, who gave up 381 rushing yards in this one. His touchdown was a five-yarder, but his 63-yard burst set up the game-winning score to Eno Benjamin that made it 34-30. It's the first time that Richard has gone over 100 this year, but with the way Arizona State was committed to running the ball this week, it may not be his last. The Sun Devils take on the awful UCLA run defense next week.
Nov 5 - 12:56 AM

Arizona State redshirt junior WR Jalen Harvey (undisclosed) was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday.

Harvey was sporting a non-contact jersey during the practice session. While he's been dealing with an undisclosed injury for much of the season, the 6-foot, 200-pounder has been productive when able. In eight contests this year, the redshirt junior owns a 23-422-1 receiving line. His 18.3 yards-per-reception mark is tops in the Pac-12. So long as he can make it through the remainder of the week largely without issue, he should be able to play against Colorado on Saturday.
Nov 1 - 5:57 PM

Arizona State sophomore WR Kyle Williams caught seven passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in a 48-17 loss to USC on Saturday.

Williams was the go-to wide receiver in this one, which is a bit of an upset when you have N'Keal Harry. Harry was held to just two catches in this one, so Williams was able to put up big yardage, albeit in a blowout loss. His touchdown came right at the end of the half to pull ASU to within 31-10 at halftime. Arizona State and Williams will take on Colorado next week.
Oct 29 - 2:42 AM

Arizona State redshirt junior WR Jalen Harvey (undisclosed) was putting in work on the sideline during Tuesday's practice.

Harvey wasn't practicing by the strict definition of the word, but was reported to be moving well in his sideline activity. He's expected to be able to play in Saturday's game against USC as the Sun Devils try for a third straight upset. They've tripped up Washington and Utah over the past two weekends.
Oct 24 - 9:02 PM

Arizona State HC Todd Graham expects redshirt junior WR Jalen Harvey (undisclosed) to play on Saturday against USC.

Harvey has battled injuries all year, and the 6-foot-1, 203-pound wideout was forced out of the game against Utah with the undisclosed injury. In limited time, he's still been able to put up 390 yards on 22 catches for the Sun Devils, and helps alleviate some of the double-teams that talented sophomore N'Keal Harry receives.
Oct 23 - 7:46 PM

Arizona State sophomore WR N'Keal Harry caught eight passes for 72 yards in a 30-10 route of Utah on Saturday.

Harry has now caught 17 passes in his last two games.He hasn't put up big yardage in those games, but he's helped move the chains to help the Sun Devils pull off the last two upsets. This is one of the best possession receivers in the conference, and he should have another high catch total next week against the Trojans of USC.
Oct 21 - 6:47 PM

Arizona State senior RB Demario Richard ran for 93 yards and a score on 18 carries in a 30-10 throttling of Utah on Saturday.

Richard (5'10/220) and fellow running back Kalen Bellage combined for 168 yards against the Utah defense. With the Utes unable to do anything against the much improved ASU defense, The Sun Devils were able to pound the rock, and Richard took advantage of the touches. His touchdown was the first trip into the end zone for either team, and gave Sparky a 16-0 lead late in the second. Arizona State gets USC next weekend in a matchup that becomes much more appealing after these last two weeks.
Oct 21 - 6:45 PM

Arizona State redshirt junior WR Jalen Harvey was forced out of Saturday's game against Utah due to an undisclosed injury.

Harvey was banged up in last weekend's upset of Washington. While he trotted out to start Saturday's contest, he's now been sidelined once more. The nature of the injury concern is currently unknown. Consider him questionable to return to action against the Utes.
Oct 21 - 5:48 PM

Arizona State redshirt senior WR Ryan Jenkins (undisclosed) did not practice on Wednesday.

Jenkins' availability for Saturday's game against Utah remains muddled. The 5-foot-11, 198-pound redshirt senior last logged a catch in a loss to Stanford on September 30 and would not represent a major deficit for the Sun Devils if he is unable to play this weekend.
