Could be time for UConn's young receivers to grow up quickly

The biggest thing to jump out at me when I looked at Cincinnati's receivers came when I looked at the career numbers.

Take a look at some of these stats:
Shaq Washington 42 games, 189 catches, 2,076 yards, 7 TDs
Max Morrison      43 games  182 catches, 1,287 yards, 9 TDs
Alex Chisum        44 games   71 catches,   952 yards, 5 TDs
Chris Moore         43 games   94 catches,  1,746 yards, 21 TDs
Mekale McKay    31 games   70 catches, 1,466 yards, 17 TDs

With the status of Brian Lemelle up for grabs and Thomas Lucas seemingly behind true freshmen Tyraiq Beals, Hergy Mayala and Aaron McLean, here's a look at the career catch totals of the UConn receivers expected to figure to more into the game plan today.

Noel Thomas         24 games, 62 catches, 792 yards, 5 TDs
Tyraiq Beals          7 games    18 catches, 200 yards, 2 TDs
Hergy Mayala        5 games     3 catches,   21 yards, 0 TDs
Aaron McLean       6 games    2 catches, 39 yards, 0 TDs

"They have the best group of wide receivers that we have played up to this point, maybe arguably all season," UConn coach Bob Diaco said. "They have impact players at all (receiving positions). All four of them are weapons and you have matchup issues in every single spot."
