It has been known for a few years among many Sun Devil faithful but it is now official. Former Arizona State star wide receiver N’Keal Harry is going to the NFL.
The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots drafted Harry in the first round as the 32nd overall pick. The 6-foot-2, 228 lb. former Chandler High School standout racked up nearly 3,000 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns in three years as a Sun Devil.
I've been waiting for this day my whole life. I put my heart and soul into this game. No matter what happens, I'll put my trust in God and do everything in my power to glorify his name. #NFLDraft2019 pic.twitter.com/KPdhPdT4Ct— Keal (@NkealHarry15) April 25, 2019
Harry had a 4.53 40-yard dash and had a 38.5 vertical jump at this year’s NFL Combine. In New England he will be working with legendary quarterback Tom Brady.
At ASU, Harry will be remembered as one of the best players in program history. From a punt return where he reversed upfield to a one-handed grab against USC, or from a game-winning touchdown catch to upset No. 15 Michigan State, Harry has plenty of highlight reel memories that will stand out in Sun Devil lore.

In his final year at ASU, Harry was named to the First Team Pac-12 All-Conference Team, and he ended his career third in career receptions and career receiving yards. Harry forewent his senior season when he declared for the draft in November.
