Just about a year after former UCLA wide receiver Devin Lucien announced he would play his final season at Arizona State, the Sun Devils have landed another pass catcher via transfer as former Oklahoma wide receiver John Humphrey announced via Twitter that he will transfer to ASU.

Humphrey stands 5-foot-11 and redshirted in 2015, his first season in Norman. He will sit out the 2016 season and have three seasons of eligibility beginning in 2017.
After being named Oklahoma's Scout Team Offensive Player of the Year in 2015, the League City, Tex., native announced on April 20 that he intended to transfer from the program.
The Sun Devils had an inside track on Humphrey as ASU receivers coach Jay Norvell recruited Humphrey during his tenure at Oklahoma. Humphrey reportedly had offers from Arkansas, Cal, Notre Dame, Texas Tech, TCU and Clemson among others.
Humphrey was rated a 3-star prospect coming out of high school and the No. 27 athlete in the 247 Sports Composite. In 2017, he will potentially compete with N'Keal Harry, Ellis Jefferson, Jalen Harvey and Terrell Chapman for playing time.
The only senior wide receivers ASU will go into 2016 with are Fred Gammage, Tim White, Eric Lauderdale and walk-on Daniel Groebner.
