Big East 2012 Top 25 countdown: No. 20
By Matt Fortuna
Our series counting down the Big East's top 25 players from 2012 continues today with a receiver who passed up the chance at the NFL to come back for one more season (even if it is in the ACC).
No. 20, Devin Street, WR, Pitt
Making the case: Street played in all 13 games for the Panthers and was quarterback Tino Sunseri's favorite target, hauling in a Big East-best 73 catches for 975 yards and five touchdowns. He added three carries for 30 yards. He was third in the conference in receiving yards. The redshirt junior had two 10-plus-catch games and three 100-yard receiving games. Street was an ESPN.com first-team All-Big East selection, and a second-team All-Big East pick by the conference. He will be back next year for a fifth and final season, Pitt's first in the ACC and Paul Chryst's second in charge of the program.
