We are taking is to the West Coast, down to Arizona State University. This is where we found quarterback Manny Wilkins, cutting up and throwing the ball down the field 30 yards for a great play. The redshirt junior is not as young as a the freshman from last weeks article, however he possess just as much athleticism.
One major aspect of his game that I find interesting is his relentless play style. This is becoming more common in young QB’s, but this has a dog in him that people lack to realize. We see a lot of “scared” quarterbacks in the league, this guy is definitely out of that conversation. He comes to every game showing that’s he’s to put his body on the line for a team win. This freak athlete will put his body on the line on every drive, however he know just how to avoid a hit. The kid is ALWAYS looking to make a big play. His team didn’t finish with the best record, 7-6, but it can be argued that he did his part as the ball-handler.
Manny Wilkins does it all, from passing to scrambling…to hurdling and stiff arming. The strong-armed Cali native threw from over 3,200 yards this past season. That’s an impressive 250 yrds/game. In addition to his passing game, he 95 rushing yards against Colorado on November 4, 2017. Lets not forget his 5 minutes of fame at the punter position, yes he’s a punter too. He recorded one 16 yards punt during his game of the season, which was against New Mexico State and another attempt at Oregon State. This time for 36 yards.
Kenny Wilkins has entered himself into the NFL Draft, so we will see what color he will be sporting next.
Here’s some highlights of his performance during the 2017-18 season.
