Playing receiver is more about body control, ball skills, balance and hands (M. Colston?). He run’s with good vision after the catch. He has average speed and if this is only his sophomore video it's very likely he will get faster. He seems like a possible future 4-star if he progresses like a normal high school player.

Like him. Doesn't have the speed of elite skill players but actually to bring down and comparable/better vision and hips the video I saw of Fournette. If he grows another couple of inches he is a Jimmy Graham/Gronkowski threat.

Good post RML. People get too caught up with pure speed when talking wrs. It's great to have but absolutely not necessary, especially in college football. Wrs can be schemed open on a regular basis so the points yyou made are spot on. Mike Williams(USC), Dwayne Jarrett, Alshon Jeffrey and Torry Holt, all wrs that lacked anything close to elite speed but yet still dominated college football to a point. There are countless others. Granted, a couple of those guys were elite to near elite wr talents but the point is speed and none of those 4 were burners or anything approaching it.

His concentration and hand eye coordination looks great. Good size and speed, even better vision. Looks like a solid player with even more potential. He needs to go to football camps next summer. Better to get noticed now then later. Tech, ULM are nearby, LSU has a camp during the same time. He looks like a legit prospect.
