BREAKING: Todd Graham says Cam Smith is out for the season with a knee injury. Will redshirt.— Fabian Ardaya (@fardaya15) March 17, 2015
Smith underwent surgery and has an 8-month recovery process. Will redshirt this season.— Devils Digest (@DevilsDigest) March 17, 2015
This is the same knee injury that sidelined Smith for the Sun Bowl— Devils Digest (@DevilsDigest) March 17, 2015
In 2014, the Coppell, Texas native was third on the team with 41 receptions for 596 yards. He also finished second on the team with six receiving touchdowns. As a freshman in 2013, he had eight receptions for 129 yards in 11 games. Smith was one of the Sun Devils top wide receivers returning this season.
The maroon and gold will now lean on D.J. Foster who is moving out to slot wide receiver as well as redshirt sophomore Ellis Jefferson, redshirt senior Gary Chambers and redshirt junior Fred Gammage for production this season. Given Mike Bercovici's arm strength and Smith's skill set as a speedy downfield threat, it's a significant loss for the Sun Devils.
