Three wide receivers from the SEC were ranked in ESPN's recent list of "10 pass catchers in college football for 2024"

Missouri's Luther Burden topped the list at No. 1, Ole Miss' Tre Harris came in at No. 5, and Texas receiver Isaiah Bond rounded out the group at No. 10.

Honorable mentions from the SEC included Georgia's Oscar Delp and Benjamin Yurosek, Ole Miss' Juice Wells, Oklahoma's Deion Burks, and Texas A&M's Moose Muhammad.

1. Luther Burden III, Missouri
2023 stats: 86 receptions, 1,212 yards, 14.1-yard average, 9 TDs
Points: 92 (five first-place votes)

Burden was a lump of clay in 2022 as a dynamic athlete and a terrifying figure with the ball in his hands. The blue-chip freshman scored rushing, receiving and punt return touchdowns, but wasn't where he needed to be as an actual receiver. He averaged just 8.3 yards per catch and finished his first year at Missouri with 375 receiving yards...

Points: 30

One of the many transfers Ole Miss has cashed in on in recent seasons, Harris returns as one of the top pass-catchers in the country. He started his career at Louisiana Tech and had a breakout season there in 2022 with 10 touchdown catches. He missed one game at Ole Miss last season with an injury but still finished with 54 catches for 985 yards and eight touchdowns. He's 6-foot-2, 205 pounds and has the athleticism and size to win most one-on-one matchups...

10. Isaiah Bond, Texas
2023 stats (at Alabama): 48 receptions, 668 yards, 13.9-yard average, 4 touchdowns
Points: 19

Texas coach Steve Sarkisian is hoping Bond can do what Georgia transfer Adonai Mitchell did for the Longhorns' offense in 2023. Bond had 48 catches for 668 yards with four touchdowns at Alabama last season. Most famously, he hauled in the winning touchdown on fourth-and-31 with 32 seconds left in a 27-24 victory at Auburn, which put the Crimson Tide in the SEC championship game...
