Power 4 Starter

Reminds Us Of

Jesus Wilson Tampa Bay Buccaneers

A play-making slot receiver that doubles as a dangerous return man. Blessed with elite foot speed (state qualifier in both the 100 and 200-meter dashes as a junior). On the smaller side having measured 5-foot-9, but plays with a much bigger catch radius than his frame would initially suggest. Fires out of his stance looking to quickly stack and attack defensive backs. Has a natural feel for the position and knows how to find a soft spot in a defense. Rather crafty with the ball in his hands and is more than capable of picking up chunks of yardage after the catch. Will need to add some core strength over the next few years in hopes of not being overpowered by larger defenders. Must also continue to evolve as a route runner. Should, however, be able to contribute right away on special teams for a Power 5 program given ability to flip the field on a dime. Likely to settle in as an inside receiver that offensive coordinators design touches for every week (think swing passes and jet sweeps). Has all-conference type of upside if everything comes together.

H.S. Athletic Background

Also runs track. Finished 8th at FHSAA 3A state track meet as a junior in the 100-meter dash.

2020: Sun Sentinel and Miami Herald All-Broward 8A-6A first-team selections. Caught 24 passes for 318 yards and five touchdowns for a Dillard team that went 6-0 and won a Class 6A-1A tri-county gold-level championship after opting out of FHSAA state playoffs. Made biggest impact on special teams where he returned three punts and two kickoffs for touchdowns.
