The Arizona State Sun Devils just keep piling on more and more injuries as the season grows closer. Add sophomore wide receiver JJ Holliday to the list. Holliday broke his collarbone on Wednesday and is expected to miss a month of action, according to Doug Haller.
Holliday, a native of Arizona who played for Santa Rita High School in Tucson, was ranked as the fourth best wide receiver prospect out of Arizona by Scouts.com. He redshirted in 2009- becoming the first Tucson high school prospect to sign with the Sun Devils since 2002- before emerging as a contributor on special teams in 2010. He played in seven games, including the last four of the season, and will look to secure a niche for himself in the team's passing offense. He has plenty of speed and big-play potential to contribute, and he could turn into a huge asset for the Sun Devils as they look to surround quarterback Brock Osweiler with a strong receiving unit.
Unfortunately, he will be sidelined for a month with a collarbone injury. The Sun Devils will have to look to other players in the time being as Holliday begins rehabilitating his broken collarbone.
