There might not be an early enrollee on the offensive side of the ball that is generating more excitement this spring than the former elite five-star wide receiver recruit and true freshman Ryan Wingo. The 6-foot-2 and 210-pound elite wideout talent Wingo has already impressed those in and around the program since the start of offseason workouts with his physical tools and movement skills.

Sarkisian clearly has big plans for Wingo in this offense, given how much he gushes over his raw talent and ability at receiver. Wingo is already getting reps with the first and second-team offenses during the first week of spring practice.

Wingo has consistently been in the top four or five group of wide receivers in the pecking order of practice reps early this spring alongside sophomore Johntay Cook II, sophomore DeAndre Moore Jr., junior Matthew Golden, and junior Isaiah Bond.

Given his bigger frame and tremendous agility and cutting skills while running routes, Wingo can be utilized immediately at boundary receiver in Sarkisian's offense in live-game action this fall.

The fact that Wingo is already getting some run with the ones early in spring practice and that he's consistently part of the two-deep in the pecking order of reps in drills is an emerging sign that he'll be an early impact player this upcoming season.
