Arizona State adds two receivers

Arizona State has signed two receivers who will be added to a 2011 signing class that now includes 18 players: Karl Holmes of Muir High School in Pasadena, Calif., and Rashad Ross of Butte College (Calif.).

You can read their bios here. And the Sun Devils' 2011 class is here.

While neither obviously is an elite recruit, it seems clear that coach Dennis Erickson felt the Sun Devils need to bolster their depth at the position.

While ASU only loses Kerry Taylor, who led the team with 54 receptions, from its 2010 receiving corps, the Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5 receivers -- Mike Willie, T.J. Simpson, Gerell Robinson and Aaron Pflugrad -- as well as George Bell are seniors in 2011.
