Arizona State wide receiver LV Bunkley-Shelton announced on Thursday that he is entering the transfer portal after two years with the program.

Bunkley-Shelton appeared in four games as a freshman, hauling in 11 passes for 100 yards before he was eventually redshirted.

In his second season with the Sun Devils, Bunkley-Shelton caught 33 balls for 418 yards over 12 games.

His yards per reception jumped 3.6 yards from 9.1 his first season to 12.7 in the second.

Bunkley-Shelton finished third on the team in receiving yards in 2021 behind Ricky Pearsall and Rachaad White, who both will not be with the team next season.
