Arizona State Sun Devils star wide receiver N'Keal Harry will not play in ASU's bowl game, ASU coach Herm Edwards told ESPN on Monday.
Harry announced last week that he will forgo his senior season at ASU and declare for the 2019 NFL Draft. He is a projected first-round pick, and some experts have him as the No. 1 wide receiver prospect in the draft.
Edwards told ESPN that Harry has already hired an agent and started training for the NFL Draft.
The Sun Devils will face No. 21 Fresno State, champions of the Mountain West Conference, in the Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 15. The game will begin at 1:30 p.m. Arizona time on Saturday, Dec. 15 and will air on ABC15.
The 20-year-old Harry, who starred at Chandler High School, caught 213 passes for 2,889 yards and 22 touchdowns during his three seasons with the Sun Devils. He had 73 catches for 1,088 yards and nine TDs in 12 games this season and helped guide ASU to a 7-5 overall record and 5-4 mark in the Pac-12.
The Sun Devils have had just one player selected in the first round in the last 15 years: defensive back Damarious Randall, who was taken 30th overall by the Green Bay Packers in 2015.
