High School: Friendship Academy
2017 stats: He appeared in 11 games and caught eight balls for 68 yards. He also had two carries for six yards and four kickoff returns for 91 yards (22.8 average).
2018 projection: He will probably play a lot in the slot, where he is able to use his small stature and lighitning speed to burn linebackers and safeties. I say he catches something around 30 balls for 500 yards and three scores. He could end up being one of the Orange’s deep ball threats.
How’d he get here: He picked the Syracuse Orange over UVA, Army, Navy, and a bunch of other schools. Not a difficult choice, in my opinion.
