Tell me what you think about this big WR.


The kid plays at a small private school, but its better than sitting back at his old high school blocking for the option!

At only 16 years old, he is already 6'3 200 with decent speed (4.6)

Haven't watched the entire thing yet, just wanted to point out that the block at 0:49 is an absolute haymaker.

Kid is awesome and has great potential. Could be WR or RB. He will only get better and faster. Tremendous open field vision! Great hands! Can catch in traffic.

Doesn't look fast, but blows by everyone. Deceptive speed!

Go get him, Les!!!

I didn't see a route ran in the whole film.

He either ran straight down the field or caught a screen.

He doesn't seem very fast, but he should definitely get to some better competition if he wants to develop.

lol @ them playing vs. River Oaks. He is a grown arse man compared to anyone on their team.

I assume he is from a little MPSA school? Kid might turn out to be a player who knows. Stevan Ridley was in MPSA as well if i remember correctly

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.

Okay, so he's a big receiver, not elite speed... catches well... blocks well and still growing?

Why make him a WR when it's the age of the TE in the NFL right now?

This kid is legit. He could do these things against evangel or west Monroe. People on this board kill me. You could post highlight videos of Peyton manning and they would still find something wrong.

Best kept secret in the state in this kid.

It really does go to show you the other side of the coin over the whole recruiting/eligibility deal. This kid played his 9th and 10th grade year for a school who did not feature him in their offense.

He is basically stuck at that school unless he decides to move to an MAIS school... Yea MAIS is small, but he does get to showcase his abilities more.

There are tons of great athletes at no name small schools who go 4-6 or worse each year and you never hear about the kid.

I for one wish this kid could pick where he wanted to go...

On a side note, this kid came to Glenbrook from Lakeside High School in Sibley... same school that speedster Chris Lewis is from.

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.

The thing is, LA is stacked with WRs this coming year and he's not better than any of the top 4 WRs, so I doubt we offer him.

He will be a TE at the next level. Get him into camps and have him work on his blocking.

This kid could be crazy good once his coaches have him for offseason workouts and has another year in the offense. Sky is the limit for this kid.
