The former 4-star wideout caught 48 balls for 580 yards and four touchdowns for the Sun Devils in 2021, leading the team in receiving yards. Pearsall is 6'1, 200 lbs., and is a solid athlete. He completed a 51-yard pass and also scored a touchdown running the football for ASU. The passing game at Arizona State was sporadic, and with Jayden Gibson heading to Baton Rouge wide outs have been leaving Tempe with the quickness.

Speaking of quickness Pearsall shows quite a lot of it here, on a screen pass he takes 14 yards to the house against Arizona.

Pearsall is hoping to show off more of his abilities as a WR. Because he was hampered at ASU, as he largely produced with yards after the catch with 283 YAC yards. He played both outside and in the slot, spending just over 40% of his snaps in the slot. Pearsall was the go-to guy for the Sun Devils. Because 28 of his 48 catches went for either a 1st down or a touchdown.

The addition of Ricky Pearsall was huge for Florida, as leading WR Jacob Copeland had already left for Maryland earlier this offseason. Billy Napier will need all the playmakers he can get, as the SEC East appears to be leveling up. Tennessee and Kentucky have drastically improved their stock, while South Carolina is also intriguing because of Spencer Rattler and Shane Beamer.

Napier has already created one of the better offensive lines in the SEC going into 2022 between returning players and impact transfers like O'Cyrus Torrence. Naturally, he will need to have plenty of weapons to pair with Justin Shorter for QB Anthony Richardson. Richardson has a high ceiling he has however been inconsistent. If Florida can get the most out of AR15, they could win the east because Georgia lost quite a bit from last year's team. However, with an improved SEC East, that task could be more difficult than ever before.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
