Don't overlook A.J. Harris' presence in the NMSU offense.
Harris is a big, physical receiver who often gets overlooked. Last year, A.J. played on a bad ankle for the majority of the schedule, yet still led the team in receptions with 81, 10 more than the mark he set the previous year. Harris also passed Duane Gregory as the school's all-time receptions leader. His game isn't the prettiest — A.J. is big, physical and not especially fast — but it gets the job done and he does a lot of dirty work for the team.
In many respects, Harris acts as a short-yardage player for a team that doesn't have a typical power-running game. He needs 125 catches to set the All-Time NCAA career receptions mark, a stat that Hal Mumme thinks is attainable for the receiver. Are his numbers inflated by the system he plays in? Of course. But that's not a negative thing. Harris has been productive and a hard-charging player for the Aggies in his tenure. He should have a fine season, even if the other players around him garner most of the headlines.
