Arizona State wide receiver N’Keal Harry was named Monday as one of 11 semifinalists for the Biletnikoff Award, which is given annually to the most outstanding FBS receiver in college football.

Harry caught seven passes for 100 yards in ASU’s win over UCLA on Saturday. The game before that, the junior made nine catches for 161 yards and three touchdowns — all season highs. Harry has 62 catches for 928 yards and nine touchdowns this year to go with 10 rushing yards for one touchdown and 157 punt return yards with one touchdown.

The 6-foot-4 wideout started his career at ASU in 2016 after attending Chandler High School, and has had a productive college career ever since then. In his freshman year, his 58 catches on the season were a freshman record for the Sun Devils and also led the nation among freshmen.

For his career, he has played 35 NCAA games, making 202 receptions for 2,729 yards and 22 touchdowns. He also has 144 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns.

Harry was named Thursday as a finalist for the Paul Hornung Award, an honor given to college football’s most versatile player.

A Pro Football Focus mock draft in late October had Harry as the second-best wide receiver in the upcoming NFL draft class behind only Stanford’s J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, who also happens to be the only other Pac-12 pass-catcher to be named to Monday’s Biletnikoff semifinalists list.

The Biletnikoff Award winner will be announced by The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation on Dec. 6.
