The 6-2, 215-pound junior wide receiver set a Big East record with 115 catches and had the third highest single season receiving yardage total in Rutgers history. Sanu also finished his career with 653 rushing yards, nine touchdowns and has a 91-yard run on his resume that was the longest in school history. Despite being only a junior, Sanu is already 22 going on 23. WalterFootball.com predicts Sanu will be drafted by Indianapolis with the first pick of the second round.
