Offers have been flying out to 2018 wide receivers for Arizona State, but is it really a need position in the recruiting class?
Arizona State is talented and young at wide receiver. Currently, it has 10 scholarship wide receivers in the program, including a lone true freshman arriving this summer, Curtis Hodges. Eight of those players are sophomores or younger, but even so, the Sun Devils have offered over 30 receiver prospects.
Despite the large number of offered recruits, we project ASU to sign two receivers at this time. This type of offense ends to have no more than 11-12 scholarship wide receivers on scholarship in any given season.
Just one of the offered recruits is an instate player, Phoenix North Canyon standout Solomon Enis. Among the rest, approximately half are from western states, including more than 10 from California alone. It's an indication of ASU's increased push into the Golden State in recruiting, as well as first-year wide receivers' coach Rob Likens' experience in the region.
