247Sports' Composite Ranking: No. 5 wide receiver; No. 1 prospect in Arizona
Junior Season Highlights
Christian Kirk flashed multidimensional skills during a commanding campaign that ended with a state title. He caught 65 passes for 1,183 yards and 17 scores, reaching 1,000 receiving yards for the second straight season.
His rushing abilities also took center stage. Kirk gained 832 yards on the ground, scoring an additional 13 touchdowns in the process.
This nationwide recruitment remains seemingly wide open, with Ohio State, Texas A&M, Alabama and Oregon among the top contenders. He spent time at potential West Coast landing spots USC and UCLA earlier this year.
Arizona State would love to keep Kirk close to home and give 4-star quarterback commit Brady White a premier target in the passing game. However, the Sun Devils face serious completion within the Pac-12 and beyond.
Best Fit: Texas A&M
Kyle Allen, the nation's No. 1 2014 quarterback prospect, is already challenging for the Aggies' starting job as a true freshman after enrolling early. That alone provides incentive for any receiver recruit—especially one from Allen's home state of Arizona.
Kirk is an excellent complement to 2014 signees Speedy Noil, a 5-star burner from Louisiana; and 6'6" Houston product Frank Iheanacho. Combined with Allen, the trio of dynamic downfield threats would provide Texas A&M with the makings of a highly potent attack for life after Johnny Football.
