The 23-year-old Wade was on trial for first-degree murder in the death of Brandon Falkner, who was shot outside a Scottsdale nightclub on March 26, 2005.
Prosecutors claimed Falkner was shot because Wade saw him talking to his girlfriend. Falkner was 25.
Wade faces a maximum of 22 years in prison when he's sentenced. No sentencing date was immediately announced Thursday.
Wade, a tailback from Los Angeles, set a school freshman rushing record in 2003, but played only three games in 2004 before he was suspended for the season for receiving improper benefits involving an overdue utility bill. He had returned to the team and was participating in spring practice at the time of the shooting.
Falkner was a defensive back for the Sun Devils from 1999-2001.
