Elijah Caldwell, sr., Northwestern (South Carolina)
Caldwell has 59 catches for 1,120 yards and 16 touchdowns this season, including a 100-yard game last week to help send Northwestern to Friday’s state semifinals against Greenville. The 6-foot-1 receiver will play for West Virginia next season.
Chris Colliver, Sr., Maiden (North Carolina)
Colliver continued his phenomenal season with nine catches for 176 yards and two touchdowns in last week’s third round playoff game. On the season, four-star North Carolina State recorded 78 catches for 1,764 yards and 25 touchdowns in 13 games.
Davon Dozier, Sr., Moody (Alabama)
Dozier finished his high school career with a bang, catching 10 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns in a game losing to the Arabs. He had 58 passes for 1,301 yards and 19 touchdowns in his last high school season before heading off to college at Arkansas.
Crowe Erickson, Sr., Wasatch (Utah)
Utah started high school football earlier than most states, so it was fair to wonder if the early start skewed the numbers a bit, given that Erickson was among the best wide receivers in the country. But here we are at the end of November and he still leads the nation with 141 catches for 1,829 yards. The 6-foot-2 receiver got an offer from Miami earlier this month.
Jaden Gibson, Sr., Rabun County, Georgia
Gibson successfully pitched last year with Gunner Stockton, and he did better as a senior at undefeated Rabun County. He broke Georgia career records for receiving yards and a touchdown in October and had a 2,000-yard snapping season in his senior year of high school. He recently came out of Southern Georgia, and Virginia is now the favourite.
Yazid Hines, Sr., Northern Pennsylvania (PA)
Haynes had 55 catches for 1,212 and 13 touchdowns heading into the playoffs for North Penn, where he moved in the offseason. He’s been absolutely fantastic by playing on a power offense, and the 6-foot-2 two-way tackle will compete for Georgia next year.
Micah Hudson Jr. Lake Belton (Texas)
Hudson was a threat as a receiver and a runner and returner as a junior, but Texas’ No. 2 recruit regardless of position really thrived as a receiver. He had nearly 1,200 yards in the air and 14 touchdowns, as well as another 243 yards and two TDs on the ground and 352 return yards.
Brandon Ennis, Sr., American Heritage (Florida)
Inniss has racked up over 1,000 yards this season against some strong competition and hopefully has three games left if American Heritage makes it to the state championship game. Ohio State’s commitment has 13 touchdown catches this season.
Vandrivius Jacobs, Sr., Vero Beach (Florida)
Jacobs went from rock solid as a junior (809 yards and 10 TDs) to amazing as a senior, catching 84 passes for 1,352 yards and 19 touchdowns. And Florida State’s 6-foot commitment isn’t finished, as Vero Beach plays a major playoff game this weekend against Osceola.
Ty Johnson, Jr. Fort Wayne Northside (Indiana)
Johnson, one of the best high school football and basketball players in Indiana, had three years of ups and downs. After a rookie year and a sophomore campaign playing for a 2-7 team, Johnson had over 1,000 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns as a starter to lead the Fort Wayne North Side to an 8-3 season.
Xavier Jordan, Jr., Los Angeles Cathedral (California)
Jordan exploded onto the national scene as a junior, catching 83 passes for 1,626 yards and 20 touchdowns in 13 games. The 6-foot-1 athlete is flying in the recruiting rankings and would continue to do so if he had a senior year that looked similar to his junior year.
Defeat Kikahuna, Bishop Gorman (Nevada)
Bishop Gorman is once again strolling into the Nevada playoffs, and Kickahona was the Gaels’ somewhat surprising star at wide receiver. Branch Zacharias, considered by many to be the best wide receiver in the country, had a stellar year receiving for nearly 800 yards and 11 touchdowns, but Kikahuna did better. He has 57 catches for 1,240 yards and 22 touchdowns and was recently drawn from Wisconsin as Power 5 conferences lined up for his services.
McKay Lemons, Real, Los Alamitos (CA)
Playing on one of the most balanced offenses in the state, Lemon never missed many passes thrown his way. USC’s commitment finished with 66 catches for 1,048, 12 touchdowns, as well as an interception defense and kickoff returns for touchdowns on special teams.
Frederick Moore, Sr., Cardinal Ritter (Missouri)
Moore has been a big playing machine this season for Cardinal Ritter, averaging over 20 yards per catch and scoring 16 touchdowns for the undefeated Cardinal Ritter. He’s hoping to get two more high school games — this weekend against Pleasant Hill in the semifinals and then the state championship game — before heading to Michigan.
Kylon Morris, Fayetteville, Arkansas
Morris had 1,593 yards this season and 15 touchdowns over 10 games. This leads the state’s 7A class and ranks 10th nationally. Morris was buried behind an older group of talented receivers on Fayetteville’s roster last season and only managed to find the end zone once. But this year, the 6-foot-1 speedster made the most of his chances.
Michael Musari, Sr., Kings (Ohio)
After a regular season of 1,000 yards and 17 touchdowns, Musari never let up in the playoffs. He amassed another 500 yards and nine touchdowns in leading the Knights to their first ever regional championship and into this week’s semifinal game against Toledo Central Catholics.
Jordan Tapscott, Sr., Kettle Run (Virginia)
Tapscott was unstoppable this season for undefeated Kettle Run, making 77 catches for 1,492 yards and 17 touchdowns in 12 games. The 6-foot-2 receiver was fired from VMI this week, perhaps as a sign that some major football programs are showing interest in light of his massive senior season.
Brayden Trimble, Sondos, Mount Zion (Illinois)
After a 100-yard season as a freshman, Trimble put together a 1,100-yard season as a sophomore, hitting 14 touchdowns in 10 games, as well as returning two touchdowns. The 6-foot-tall receiver has already earned all-state honors and should have big things ahead of him in his last two years of high school football.
Aiden Williams, Sr., Ridgeland, Mississippi
Williams put together his second straight 1,000-yard season, making 68 catches for 1,265 yards and 14 touchdowns in 10 games. The 6-foot-2 Ole Miss’s commitment to football has been remarkably consistent over the past two seasons, as he had 63 passes for 1,156 yards and 14 touchdowns in nine games as a junior.
Ryan Williams, Sam, Saraland (Alabama)
Williams finished as the leading receiver in the state with 1,515 yards and tied for the lead with 23 touchdown catches. It’s scary to think of what’s left of his high school career, and the 6-foot-5 five-star receiver has already committed to play for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
