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