  03/06/21 - Frank DarbyrSr/2021, Arizona State, 6-0, 201 (DS#29 WR) + More +

  Former Arizona State football standouts Frank Darby and Aashari Crosswell have been invited to the 2021 NFL Scouting ombine, although that annual pre-draft event will have a different look this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event usually is held in Indianapolis, but this year there won't be in-person workouts conducted. All interviews and psychological testing will be virtual with a plan to conduct medical tests still being discussed. Athletes will undergo drills and workouts at their respective Pro Days with a maximum of three representatives per NFL team eligible to attend. The NFL Scouting Combine serves as a barometer for teams in evaluating draft potential. A total of 323 college players have been included. Darby, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound wide receiver, played 40 games in his ASU career, tallying 67 receptions for 1,317 yards and 13 touchdowns. - Arizona Republic

  The fact that former University of Utah wide receiver Bryan Thompson announced Thursday afternoon that he is transferring to Arizona State has everything to do with a now-defunct piece of Pac-12 legislation. On May 20, 2019, the Pac-12 announced that its presidents and chancellors voted to eliminate the "loss of a season" penalty for student-athletes who want to transfer from conference school to another. Student-athletes would still be subject to NCAA rules mandating they sit out one year, but that year would no longer count against their eligibility.

Thompson, who will be a redshirt junior in 2021 after the NCAA froze the eligibility clock in 2020, entered the transfer portal on Feb. 2 after 33 career games with the Utes dating back to the 2017 season. Thompson had 33 catches for 756 yards and four touchdowns in those 33 games. The Moreno Valley, Calif., native broke out in 2019 as a redshirt junior, hauling in 18 passes for 461 yards and three scores. - Salt Lake Tribune

  The Arizona State football team has a lot of wide receivers, although the group is young as a whole. The Sun Devils will be adding a veteran to the mix in Utah transfer Bryan Thompson, who announced on social media he is headed to Tempe. Thompson, who will have two years of eligibility remaining, could be the vertical threat the Sun Devils are looking for to replace the departed Frank Darby. Thompson, a 6-foot-2, 207-pounder, recorded nine catches for 182 yards and a touchdown in five games for the Utes last season. He had his best game with three receptions for 65 yards in a 24-21 loss to Washington. He caught a 13-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter of that contest. He had racked up 33 catches for 756 yards and four touchdowns in his Utah career. In 2019 he was Utah's second-leading receiver with 18 receptions for 461 receiving yards, for an average of 25.6 yards per catch. He played in 12 games, starting nine of those. - Arizona Republic

  Arizona State junior kicker Cristian Zendejas has become the second Sun Devil this week to enter the transfer portal. Zendejas, a product of Perry High School and the son of former ASU legend Luis Zendejas, was 9-for-9 in extra point kicks in the shortened season but only 2-for-4 on field goal tries with misses from 40 and 45 yards. Freshman Jack Luckhurst also saw some playing time and, at worst, had probably equaled Zendejas on the depth chart. He was 9-for-9 on extra points and made his only field goal try which was from 49 yards out against UCLA. Luckhurst came into that game after Zendejas missed from 45 yards out in the first quarter. Zendejas had a stellar 2019, going 19-for-20 on extra points and converting 23 of 27 field goal tries but had a best of 43 yards and was 5-for-7 on attempts 40 to 49 yards. - Arizona Republic

  Redshirt junior safety K.J. Jarrell of Arizona State is headed to the transfer portal, indicating that on social media Monday night. Jarrell, a product of Saguaro High School, opted out of the shortened 2020 season but likely would not have factored in had he played. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder was used sparingly in seven games in 2019, primarily on special teams, finishing with two tackles. - Arizona Republic

  01/06/21 - Jayden DanielsSo/2023, Arizona State, 6-2, 185 (DS#7 QB) + More +

  ASU football quarterback Jayden Daniels could have a say in the Heisman Trophy discussion in 2021, according to odds released this week by SportsBetting.ag. The SportsBook has the Arizona State sophomore at +1400 to win the award for college football's best player next season, tied for eighth in the country. Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler, an Arizona high school product, is the favorite at +500. Daniels completed 58.3% of his passes last season, throwing five touchdown passes and having one pass intercepted. The Sun Devils only played four games due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He also rushed for 223 yards and four touchdowns for ASU, which went 2-2. Daniels gives ASU a legitimate Heisman contender, something it hasn't had for years. - Arizona Republic

  Add another to the list of Arizona State football players looking to come back next year and finish what they started. Senior cornerback Chase Lucas indicated on social media he too is planning to return and take advantage of the NCAA's mandate to grant athletes an extra season of eligibility due to the circumstances presented by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Lucas joins fellow defenders Jack Jones and Evan Fields who publicized the same decision in the last week. The decision by Lucas, a product of Chandler High School, probably wasn't a surprise to many as social media posts on the part of Sun Devil assistant coaches last week seemed to hint that would be the case. - Arizona Republic
