Who could benefit more from the Wolf Pack’s move to the #PackAttack offense than Demps?
New Nevada head coach Jay Norvell is in the midst of installing a new Air Raid offense in Reno, and it’s to his benefit that he inherits some dynamic weapons, including the next athlete on our top 50.
Wyatt Demps was a revelation in an otherwise disappointing 2016 for Nevada, leading the Wolf Pack in catches (53), receiving yards (686) and touchdowns (9). He also finished the season with a healthy 63.9% catch rate, making him the unquestioned number one wide receiver heading into the fall.
Considering James Butler’s departure from the program this offseason, Demps’s production will be of great significance as Nevada hopes to rebuild their championship dreams quickly.
