840 catches. 13,726 yards. 107 touchdowns. Countless big plays and memories.

We wrap up the offseason with a truly special episode as we welcome five of the most legendary wide receivers in Sun Devil history. Considering the abundance of amazing players that ASU has enjoyed at that spot, the lineup on this Speak of the Devils episode really stands out.

J.D. Hill (2:04): The first Sun Devil to top 1,000 yards receiving in a season, Hill was a sensational gamebreaker who helped lead the 1970 squad to an undefeated season.

Keith Poole (28:38): The No. 1 target on ASU's magical 1996 Rose Bowl year, Poole was Jake the Snake's go-to man. His touchdown pose may be the most memorable image in Sun Devil football history.

Shaun McDonald (41:35): Walter to McDonald, all day, every day. That duo put up yards at a rate never before seen, and McDonald still holds the record for best single-season in ASU history.

Derek Hagan (49:25): By the time he moved on to the NFL, Hagan had become the all-time leading receiver in not just ASU history, but in the entire span of the Pac-10.

Chris McGaha (1:06:29): You throw it, he'll catch it. McGaha went from local prep star to one of the most reliable, productive, and underrated wide receivers to ever don the maroon and gold.
