Team receptions returning: Pac-12 South

By Kevin Gemmell

On Monday we looked at what each team in the Pac-12 had returning in terms of the rushing game. Here's the breakdown for the South and the North.

Today we turn our attention to the wide receivers. We're looking at returning receiving yards, returning receptions and returning receiving touchdowns. First up is the South.

As a reminder, here's how the teams ranked last year in passing offense:
  1. Washington State
  2. Oregon State
  3. Arizona
  4. USC
  5. UCLA
  6. Arizona State
  7. Oregon
  8. Washington
  9. California
  10. Stanford
  11. Colorado
  12. Utah

Here's what the teams in the Pac-12 South have coming back.


Note: Was torn on whether or not to include Austin Hill. Technically, he's not off the team and he's a returning player. But it's also unlikely he'll play in 2012. So above are his the numbers -- since he's still on the team. Without him, the numbers obviously dip significantly: 41 percent yards returning; 52 percent catches returning; 40 percent touchdowns returning.

Arizona State

Note: Like Austin Hill, I included George Farmer's numbers. Though he's expected to miss the year, he's still technically a "returning" player. Though his numbers, one catch for 7 yards, don't alter the landscape like they do with Hill.
