Top 15 Wide Receivers for Class of 2013
Top 15 Wide Receivers for Class of 2013
Wide receivers definitely don’t get the attention they deserve. They catch difficult passes and typically score the majority of the teams points. Even when they catch difficult passes, it seems that the quarterback and the coach gets majority of the credit. It’s my honor to recognize my Top 15 Wide Receivers for the Class of 2013.
Some may believe that a wide receivers ranking is all about touchdowns and yards, but I believe it’s about their leadership. Some of my top receivers don’t just have an impressive resume, but have made big plays for their teams in big games. I plan to not just rank wide receivers on just touchdowns and yards, but rank them on their ability to lead their team to the championship. I’ve also incorporated online polls and individuals opinions on blogs. I’ve looked at blogs and opinions from ESPN, Max Preps, and Rant Sports.
My Top 15 Wide Receivers hale from Florida, Georgia, California, North Carolina, Kentucky, Texas, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. I’m very proud to name the Illinois star because he is the top Illinois recruit in the Class of 2013 and in my opinion the best wide receiver in his class. I’m pretty sure Crete, Illinois fans know who I’m talking about.
I know some are you are going to be mad at my rankings, but don’t be angry. If someone was forgotten, let me know and we can agree to disagree. Rant me, tweet me, or message me on Facebook if you have any comments or concerns.
#15 Demarcus Robinson
This 6’3, 200 lbs youngster is a great athlete and a well deserved top 15 canidate. He rushed for 5 yards a game, had 5 yards per carry, receieved 108.5 yards per game, had 434 total receiving yards, and 5 total touchdowns. He lead the Peach County Trojans to a 9-1 season. They would have a perfect record, if they didn’t lose a disappointing game to Carver 17-26. He committed to Clemson on July 20.
#14 Isaiah Jones
Isaiah Jones fits in perfectly at number 14. He’s a solid athlete and a great leader. Although the Milton Panthers didn’t have that great of a season at 7-3, Jones made big plays for them when they needed it. He’s lightning fast and at 6’4, 195 he’s almost a mismatch for anyone trying to stop him. He committed to Florida State on July 6.
#13 Sebastian Larue
The Santa Monica high school star was a stud this year. He played a couple positions for the Vikings and really proved why he is one of the best wide receivers in the Class of 2013. He played defensive back and wide receiver and was pretty much the work horse for his team. He rushed for 10 yards a game, had 4.5 tackles per game and scored 6 points per game. He committed to USC on June 21.
#12 Marquez North
Marquez North is not only a great wide receiver, but an outstanding leader. He lead the Mallard Creeks Mavericks to an outstanding 11-1 season. During the season he rushed for 19.2 yards a game, carried the ball 24 yards per game, had 3 rushing touchdowns and received 3 touchdowns. He’s very strong for someone that plays his position and can catch the ball with the best of them. He recently hasn’t chosen any school, but has interests from Florida, Tennessee, Clemson, and other top schools.
#11 James Quick
The 6’2, 185 lbs wide receiver is a beast. He received 34 passes this season, had 19.65 yards per catch, and had 4 touchdowns this season. He was a big part of the Trinity Shamrock’s 10-1 season and in my opinion he was the definite leader of the team. Quick’s season would have been perfect, if the Shamrocks didn’t lose a heart breaker to Archbishop Moeller 42-45. He hasn’t declared a school yet, but has interests from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, and other top schools.
#10 Steven Mitchell
Steven Mitchell is one of the shorter wide receivers of my top 15, but definitely one of my favorite. At 5’10,180 lbs he’s definitely got NFL potential. He lead the Alemany Warriors to an outstanding 9-2 season and helped them ranked No. 12 in California. Mitchell would have had a perfect season, if it wasn’t for two heart breaking losses to Centennial and Crespi. He committed to USC on June 6.
#9 Damore’ea Stringfellow
It pained me to put Damore’ea Stringfellow at No. 9, but there is so much talent in the Class of 2013. Stringfellow was the heart and soul of the Rancho Verde Mustang’s football team. He lead them to a perfect record to 14-0 season and helped the Mustangs rank No. 31 in California. I’m excited to see this kid in college football and happy that he committed to Washington on June 29.
#8 Jacorey Warrick
Jacorey Warrick is a great athlete at 5’10, 170 lbs. He may be one of the shorter receievers in my top 15, but probably the most explosive. He was a big part of the Cypress Falls Eagles winning season and really is a great kid. He had interests from Baylor, LSU, Nebraska, and other top schools, but chose to stick near home. He chose the Texas Longhorns on February 26.
#7 Kyrin Priester
Some may not like to see Kyrin Priester at my No. 7 spot, but let me explain. He’s a leader and he’s helped Snellville, Georgia get on the high school football scene. At 6’1, 181 lbs he can catch with the best receivers in his class and is a humble kid. Although the Brookwood Broncos didn’t have that great of a season at 6’4, Priester helped them win some big games against Central Gwinnett and Berkmar. He committed to North Carolina State on October 7.
#6 Jordan Cunningham
Jordan Cunningham is an amazing athlete at 6’3, 180 lbs. He is long and makes impossible catches look easy. He lead the University Suns to a perfect season at 8-0 and helped them rank No. 2 in Florida. He had 5 points per game, 14.23 yards per catch, and received the ball 30 times. He is undeclared, but has interest from Oklahoma State, Stanford, Alabama, and other top schools.
#5 Robbie Rhodes
Robbie Rhodes was definitely the heart and soul for the Southwest Raiders. He lead them to a solid 8-2 season, but a disappointed No. 128 rank in Texas. He was a major part of their winning season and helped in big games against Arlington Heights and South Hills. At 6’1, 185 lbs he definitely has NFL potential. He committed to Baylor on June 10.
#4 Torii Hunter Jr.
Torii Hunter Jr. had a great season with the Prosper Eagles. He lead them to an 8-2 season, while putting up solid stats. He rushed for 8.3 yards per game, had 3 tackles per game. Scored 7.8 points per game, and had 10.38 yards per carry. He committed to Notre Dame on September 23.
#3 Stacy Coley
At 6’1, 173 lbs Stacy Coley is definitely suited at No. 3 in my top 15. He is a great leader and an amazing football player. He led the Northeast Hurricanes to a 10-1 season and helped them rank No. 28 in Florida. He was a big part of the Hurricanes amazing games against Fort Lauderdale and Coral Glades, dominating the offense side of the football. He hasn’t chosen a school yet, but he has interest from Florida, Florida State, Georgia, and other top programs.
#2 Robert Foster
Robert Foster had a great season with the Central Valley Warriors. He lead them to a 9-2 season and helped them win big games against Belle Vernon and Hopewell. He rushed for 37.8 yards per games, had 5.1 tackles per games, 12 points per game and rushed 43 times this season. He hasn’t chose where he wants to play yet, but he has interest from Alabama, Pittsburg, Florida, and other top name schools.
#1 Laquon Treadwell
I proud to announce my No. 1 ranked player Laquon Treadwell. At 6’3, 195 lbs Treadwell is the most athletic wide receiver in his class and the most dominant. He lead the Crete Warriors to a perfect season at 11-0. He rushed 5.9 yards per game, had 2.1 tackles per game, had 872 total receiving yards and had 87.2 receiving yards per game. He hasn’t chosen a college yet, but has interest from Ole Miss, Alabama, Arizona State, and other top programs.
