After only catching a trio of passes in his first three games this season, Jarius Wright got going…
That's according to Razorback wide receiver Jarius Wright, who was asked about the fact that he, Greg Childs and Joe Adams didn't get love in post-season honors despite being part of the league's most prolific passing attack.
"I think y'all will see every one of us next year," Wright said. "We are not getting mentioned as much as we would like to so we are going to come back and try it again."
South Carolina's Alshon Jeffrey and Alabama's Julio Jones were first team picks and Georgia's A.J. Green and Randall Cobb second team picks on the Coach's All-SEC squad.
Childs had 46 catches for 659 yards and 6 touchdowns before getting injured in the season's eighth game, Adams 41 receptions for 693 and 5 TDs and Wright hauled in 38 catches for a team-leading 718 yards and 4 scores.
"It is unfortunate that we don't get mentioned like all the rest of the receivers, but we have three great receivers and that is what makes our team different from any other team in the nation," Wright said. "I don't think any other team can say what we say about our receivers.
"So yes, it is unfortunate that we don't get mentioned like the other receivers, but our coaches hold us to a higher standard and they award us in our own special way," Wright added.
Childs is rehabbing his injury.
"He is doing great and has the right mindset," Wright said. "He is trying to use this time to get bigger. He is working on getting his upper body bigger…He is coming along real well."
In addition to the upperclassmen, Cobi Hamilton (31 catches, 609 yards, 6 TDs) had a stellar season and freshmen Julian Horton, JeVontee Herndon, Lance Ray and Maudrecus Humphrey all showed promise in games and/or practices.
"I feel like our receiving corp played real well from the freshmen getting in and taking their snaps to the older kids in and taking their snaps," Wright said. "Me, personally, I am proud of my receivers and proud of myself."
