Arizona State completed its Wednesday practice inside the Verde Dickey Dome while a light rain drizzled outside the facility.

The team worked through two periods, including tackle circuit and pursuit drills before starting special teams as the media was removed.

Fiso, Moeakiola & Sam update

Linebacker Salamo Fiso was working out on a bike during position drills. Safety Laiu Moeakiola was a full participant, as was nose tackle Ami Latu.

Linebacker Christian Sam was a full participant, sporting tape over right foot.

“Muscle Beach”

Offensive lineman Tyson Rising, tight end Grant Martinez, long snapper Mitchell Frabroni, and running back Mark “Goose” Cosgrove worked on the side during position drills.


Starting center Stephon McCray stretched on the near side of the field among the players who usually work on the side at Muscle Beach. During the team portion of the pursuit drill period, McCray was not with the first team.

Instead, junior transfer center A.J. McCollum worked with the first unit.

First Team

Manny Wilkins (QB); Demario Richard (RB); N’Keal Harry (WR, outside), Jalen Harvey (WR, outside), Tim White (WR, slot); Kody Kohl (TE); Evan Goodman (LT), Sam Jones (LG), A.J. McCollum (C), Quinn Bailey (RG), Zach Robertson (RT)

  • Possession Summary:

- the offense lined up in a shotgun formation, I’d say resembles Normal HB Weak—two receivers lined up on the right side of the formation (Harvey, wide; White, slot); Kohl lined up next to the LT on the left side, while Harry lined up as the split end on the left.

- Wilkins completed a slant to Harry; Wilkins completed a pass to Richard who ran an angle route out of the backfield; Wilkins completed another pass over the middle; Wilkins gave the ball to Richard on a read option for TD.

Second Team

Brady White (QB); Nick Ralston (RB); Ellis Jefferson (WR, outside), Cameron Smith (WR, outside), Fred Gammage (WR, slot); Raymond Epps (TE); Cohl Cabral (LT), Alex Losoya (LG), Tyler McClure (C), Steven Miller (RG), Mason Walter (RT)

  • Possession Summary:

- group also lined up in the same formation.

- White completed a slant to Jefferson; Ralston ran right side; missed a couple plays, forgive me; White completed to Jefferson for TD.
