Arizona State Sun Devils sophomore wide receiver N’Keal Harry was awarded first-team all-Pac-12, while redshirt junior defensive lineman JoJo Wicker and redshirt freshman cornerback Chase Lucas earned second-team all-conference team honors on Tuesday afternoon.
Seven players were announced as Pac-12 honorable mentions:
Senior defensive back Chad Adams, Senior linebacker DJ Calhoun, redshirt junior offensive lineman Sam Jones, senior running back Demario Richard, redshirt junior linebacker Christian Sam, senior defensive lineman Tashon Smallwood, and redshirt junior quarterback Manny Wilkins.
Here is the full list of All-Pac-12 teams.
With 1,000 receiving yards, Harry led the conference. He finished third in the Pac-12 receiving 83.3 yards per game and was the only true sophomore to finish top-10 in the conference in that category. Harry had seven touchdowns this season, with four in his last four games and two against the Arizona Wildcats.
Wicker tied for sixth in the Pac-12 in tackles for loss with 12, as he averaged one per game. He was named second-team all-conference last season, when he had just as many tackles (39) as this season, but finished with three and a half more sacks (six) than last year’s total.
Lucas may be the most surprising all-pac-12 team member because his stats didn’t show it.
The Chandler, Arizona native waited three games before he became the Sun Devils’ starting cornerback, minimizing his statistic ability. However, he tied with Adams for the most interceptions (two) on ASU and was fifth on the team in tackles with 53. Despite his late start, Lucas led the Sun Devils with seven passes defended and was 11th in the Pac-12 in that category.
A major snub was Sam who led the conference with 127 tackles. The last ASU player to lead the conference in tackles was Adam Archuleta in 2000.
