Overview

Regarded by many as one of the most complete receivers in the collegiate ranks, Hagan went on to shatter school and Pac-10 Conference records during his time with the Sun Devils. He joined Oregon State's Mike Hass in 2005 as the only players in Pac-10 annals to gain more than 1,000 yards receiving three times in a career. Arizona State faithful compare him favorably to one of the school's finest products, John Jefferson, who held the school's career receiving records (1974-77) until Hagan broke those marks.

Hagan was an All-City selection as a senior at Palmdale High School. He earned All-Region honorable mention by Prep Star during his final season and was twice named to the All-Conference squad. Hagan also garnered All-CIF accolades from the Los Angeles Daily News, made the All-Valley Press team and twice picked up All-Golden League recognition.

In 2001, Hagan set the school single-season record with 843 yards receiving, catching 65 passes with five touchdowns. He also intercepted nine passes as a defensive back. As a junior, Hagan caught 19 passes for 303 yards on offense and recorded 23 tackles with four interceptions on defense. He was named team MVP as a junior and senior.

As a senior, Hagan served as team captain in football, basketball and track. He averaged 12 points and five rebounds per game for the basketball team and had a career-best triple jump of over 46 feet for the track squad.

Hagan was named to the All-Pac 10 Conference Freshman Team in 2002. He appeared in every game, starting three times for Arizona State. Hagan broke the old freshman season record (since broken by Zach Miller in 2004) with 32 receptions for 405 yards (12.7 avg), topping Jefferson's old marks.

Hagan earned All-Pac 10 Conference honorable mention as a sophomore. He started ten of twelve games at split end, leading the team with 66 receptions for 1,076 yards (16.3 avg) and nine touchdowns. He ranked fifth in the conference with an average of 89.7 yards per game receiving. He was only the sixth player in school history to gain more than 1,000 yards receiving in a season.

A second-team All-American and All-Pac 10 Conference choice in 2004, Hagan again led the team with 83 catches for 1,248 yards (15.0 avg) and ten touchdowns. He ranked second in the conference and seventh in the nation with an average of 104.0 yards per game receiving. His receptions and yardage total rank second on the school's single-season record charts while his ten scores were tied for sixth. He also joined Shaun McDonald (2001-02) as the only players in ASU annals to gain more 1,000 receiving yards twice in a career.

Hagan was a first-team All-Pac-10 performer in 2005 and was a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award for the second consecutive season. His 1,210 receiving yards was good for third in the conference and eighth in the nation and was his third consecutive season over 1,000. He caught at least three passes in every game.

Hagan finished his ASU career as the Pac-10'w all-time leader with 258 receptions, and is second with 3,939 career yards. His receiving yards shattered the old school all-time record of 2,993 yards by Jefferson. He also holds the Sun Devils' career-records for receptions, receiving yards, receiving touchdowns, 100-yard games (18) and career receiving yards per game (78.8)

Analysis

Positives: Highly competitive type who likes to have the ball in pressure situations … Has a steady stride to reach top acceleration, compensating for a lack of blazing speed with good redirection agility to work back to the ball … Does a nice job of using his size to shield the defenders from the ball … Very effective keeping his feet in bounds along the sidelines and works hard to uncover … Uses his body control to make proper adjustments when timing his leaps to compete for the jump ball … His ability to get open underneath makes him ideally suited for the hitch routes … Has the natural hands and arm extension to pluck the ball away from the body's frame … Very flexible when adjusting to the ball in flight, easily looking the ball in over his shoulder … Will not hesitate to sacrifice his body to get to the ball in a crowd … Has a normal stride throughout the route and has the strong leg drive to break arm tackles.

Negatives: Struggled badly with dropped passes at the Senior Bowl and the Combine … Has adequate muscle development and is a hard worker in the training room, but could use another ten pounds of bulk on his frame … Does not have the second gear or explosive burst to separate … Best on hitches, curls and underneath routes, as he does not show the speed needed to elude defenders in the open on deep routes … Does a good job of driving deep into his routes and then come back for the ball, but is prone to rounding his cuts … Does not have the quickness to escape and gain big yardage after the catch … Makes a good effort as a blocker, but lacks technique and is too inconsistent in using his hands when attempting to sustain at the line of scrimmage … Has decent field instincts, but needs several reps to digest the play.

Hagan is a well-developed athlete with good work habits in the training room. He was a recent recipient of the team's Hard Hat Player Award for his work in the team's offseason training program. Much like former ASU standout Shaun McDonald (Rams), Hagan seems to be at his best in clutch situations. He shows good durability, having never missed a game due to an injury.

Hagan is a smooth strider who might lack a sudden burst, but uses his hands and his initial quickness to get into his routes. He does a good job of using his size to shield the ball from defenders and generally does a good job of securing the ball before heading up field. Hagan has enough field savvy to make adjustments in his routes. He does a nice job of uncovering and shows alertness when working underneath.

He has the body control and balance to squeeze through tight areas and has the plant and drive agility to work back to the ball when the quarterback is pressured. He needs to run crisper routes though, as he will gather a bit and round his cuts too often. While he has good timed speed, a lack of explosion out of his cuts make him better suited for hitches and curls, but he can get under the ball nicely on deep routes when given a clear lane.

Hagan is a tough battler who times his leaps well to compete for the jump ball. He has natural hands and arm extension to catch away from the body's frame. He compensates for a lack of ideal speed by driving deep into his routes and then redirecting to come back for the pass.

Hagan utilizes adequate leg drive and hip snap in attempts to separate, but will not win many foot races on long routes. He is more apt to build to top acceleration rather than showing suddenness in his cuts. While he gives good effort, he is inconsistent getting his hands in position in attempts to block for the ground game at the line of scrimmage.

He is more the type of receiver who can work the sidelines and move the chains rather than deliver the home run play on the deep throws. He shows decent field alertness, but might struggle with a complicated playbook. His ability to make body adjustments to get to the poorly thrown ball and his flexibility in attempts to haul in the pass in a crowd will make him better suited to play the slot or split end. But his lack of explosiveness will prevent him from being a deep threat at the next level.

Northwestern … Credited with five receptions for 90 yards and a score … Five of his catches resulted in first downs … After sophomore defensive end Kellen Mills forced a North-western fumble on their own 38-yard line, the Devils quickly took advantage of it and QB Sam Keller found Hagan open in the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown in the second quarter … Head to Head Competition -- CB Deante Battle.

Oregon State … In a game that matched two of the country's top receivers in Hagan and OSU's Mike Hass, the duo combined for 22 receptions, 367 yards and two touchdowns, as Hagan had the slight edge with 193 yards and a pair of scores on eleven grabs … Hagan passed John Jefferson (1974-77) to become the Sun Devils' career leader in receiving yards with 2,160 … Hagan's first grab in the game was good for 45 yards … Hagan made up for a false start penalty with a 14-yard gain on a third-and-11 toss from Sam Keller, followed by a 39-yarder three plays later to set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Rudy Burgess with 3:53 left in the first half … In the third quarter, Hagan had a 14-yard reception on a third-and-10 play to set up his 5-yard touchdown catch that concluded a 7-play, 70-yard drive … On the team's next drive, Hagan snatched a 28-yard scoring pass from Keller … Head to Head Competition -- CB Gerard Lawson.

We'll try to keep our heads up and prepare for Oregon. We should have won the game but a few plays here and there turned the game around. During the second half they (USC) were pretty much doing the same thing and we were stopping ourselves. We made some stupid mistakes that we normally don't make which cost us. The turnovers are going to happen, but you just have to put them behind you and just keep on playing, because Sam (Keller) had some turnovers, some interceptions and not all of them were his fault. But once we make a turnover, we just have to keep our heads up. The defense is going to come out and play as hard as they can to stop their offense and once we get back on the field we just have to execute again. One thing we always talk about is finish. We didn't finish well enough in the second half. We were up by 21-17 but we didn't finish, USC played a great game they kept fighting and came up with the victory." … Head to Head Competition -- CB John Walker.

Oregon … Only had four catches for 46 yards, but three were good for first downs, including a 20-yard touchdown … On Oregon's' first possession, ASU's DeWayne Hollyfield blocked an Oregon 55-yard field goal try and Arizona State took over at the ASU 43.
