ASU Football: Kicker Cristian Zendejas enters Transfer Portal

Arizona State kicker Cristian Zendejas has entered the transfer portal. The Gilbert native held the Sun Devils’ starting job for the entirety of the 2019 season and much of 2020, before experiencing struggles that led to redshirt freshman Jack Luckhurst surpassing Zendejas on the depth chart late this year.

Zendejas was one of the more reliable kickers in the PAC-12 in 2019, but a poor showing in a small sample size in 2020 will likely keep him from returning to Tempe in 2021.

He had been nearly perfect in the short game during his ASU tenure, but struggled mightily with long range kicks from 40-plus yards.
