Gabe Marks had a stellar 2015 campaign, hauling in 15 touchdowns on 104 receptions. After a victory in the Sun Bowl over Miami, he decided that was not enough. With the potential to increase those numbers in 2016 he decided to come back to the Cougars for his senior year.

Bleacher Report is already looking forward to the 2016 season and released their top 20 returning receivers heading into Spring practices. The Pac-12 has two players on the list with Marks being the second best receiver right behind Juju Smith-Schuster out of USC.

Marks led the conference with 104 receptions while Juju finished tied for 2nd with 89 on the season. The two led the conference in most categories including receiving yards as Juju had 1,454 yards while Marks had 1,192 yards.

Marks finished 4th in all of college football in both receptions and receiving yards last season. With another year under Mike Leach and the coaching staff's offense as well as another year catching from Luke Falk, Marks looks to put up even better numbers.
