Christian Davon Kirk will be 23 years old in the 2020 season. Born in Scottsdale, Arizona, he attended a local high school where he played both wide receiver and running back. As a senior, Kirk gained over 3,000 all-purpose yards, which led to him earning a five-star recruit status and recruited as one of the top wide receivers in the country.
