The 2020 Receiver Class in Ohio is not as strong as I would like. Some defensive backs could possibly play a receiver, but for now these are some of my top choices. Some are more of slot type receivers. Jutahn McClain from Fairfield who is listed as an RB will be a slot receiver type.
Prospects listed in random order.
- Chris Scott – Pickerington North – 6’1-175. Believe that he has the best hands and catching skills in the class. Climbs to make catches. Solid speed, but needs to be faster. Needs to work on quickness in getting vertical. N/A
- Luke Floriea – Mentor – 5’10-170. Fast, but plays faster. Good initial quickness. Has a burst. Excellent ball catcher. Tough after the catch. Really like his ability to take a hit. Makes plays. Size hurts some. Boston College
