Chandler High alum and current Arizona State football standout receiver N’Keal Harry announced Monday that he is leaving the Sun Devils a year early to declare for the 2019 NFL draft.

“I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me throughout this journey,” Harry said in a statement released by ASU on Twitter. “These past three years have been filled with unforgettable memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. It has truly been an honor to represent Arizona State University.

“With that being said, I would like to announce that I am declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft. This is something I have dreamed about as long as I can remember and I am extremely excited to see what the future holds. Forks Up!”

Harry did not say whether he will play in whatever bowl game the Sun Devils are assigned. Bowl-game selections are expected Dec. 2.

Harry signed with Arizona State in 2016 after finishing his career at Chandler High with 119 receptions for 2,715 yards and 25 touchdowns, leading the Wolves to a 2014 state championship.

The 6-foot-4, 216-pound junior was rated a five-star recruit by out of high school and the No. 1 wide receiver in the country.

In three seasons at Arizona State, Harry became one of the best receivers the school has produced in a lengthy line of luminaries at the position.

Going into the bowl game, Harry is third on the ASU career list in receptions (213) and receiving yards (2,889). He also has 25 total touchdowns.

According to Pro Football Focus, Harry is projected to be picked by the San Francisco 49ers with the No. 13 overall pick in first round by the April 2019 draft.

Harry would join Brett Hundley, Cameron Jordan, Dion Jordan and Adam Archuleta as notable Chandler High alums who have played in the NFL.

Arizona State (7-5) finished its regular season with a come-from-behind victory over rival Arizona in the Territorial Cup.
