USU football: Aggie QB Chuckie Keeton will be chucking the pigskin to these receivers this year

Van Leeuwen’s production actually declined last season, when the Provo native’s reception count declined from 15 in 2011 to 12 in 2012. As a freshman in 2010, he had 16 catches, so Van Leeuwen must change course if the Aggies hope to replicate last year’s campaign.

Van Leeuwen (6-foot-3, 195 pounds) reportedly distinguished himself in the spring, when he had some drops in the camp’s finale but was Keeton’s top option when feeling a pass rush.

On any account, the former Timpview High School star has 36 career USU games under his belt, so he promises veteran leadership. Coaches already say he possesses a “vast knowledge” of the offense, and head coach Matt Wells has noted his leadership alongside Reynolds.

Tialavea will be a significant contributor.

Jojo is gonna knock people's socks off in the open field.

We better find a go-to guy to replace Austin. We'll get yards without him, but I can't tell you how many times Chuckie/Austin did the fade route in the endzone for a TD.

It's gonna be good!!! GO AGGIES!

Van Leeuwen needs to step up this year, he dropped a lot of passes in the spring game.

Chucking the ball on Utah's questionable corners and safeties. Look out.

Van Leeuwen will be fine. He looked great in fall camp. TVL will be a great contributor.

We're gonna be just fine for regular yards and regular play. It's the go-to guy when the offense KNOWS you're throwing it to him that we need someone to step up and take that spot.
