Utah D1 – Wide Receiver Preview

Here are the top D1 caliber wide receivers that we’ve been able to evaluate in person:

Power 5 Caliber – Wide Receivers (2019)

We believe these five players can play for any school in the country:

(listed in alphabetical order, according to first name)

Braedon Wissler, Bingham HS, 2019 – Our staff believes that Wissler could possibly be the top football player in the state of Utah.  His work ethic is unreal.  He dominated last season as a junior, on Bingham’s state championship team.  That momentum has carried over into the off season.

Chase Roberts, American Fork, 2019 – Roberts is one of the top football players in the state of Utah.  Coach Graves has been high on him since last summer, when he worked out at the former D1 facility. We were really impressed with his play versus Hunter High School, in the playoffs.  Roberts has the potential to play as a true freshman on the D1 level.

Hudson Schenck, Weber HS, 2019 – Schenck is one of the most talented receivers that we’ve evaluated. He has the potential to have a historic season this year. We believe that Schenck will have some good opportunities to play on the D1 level.  He’s been putting up big numbers since his sophomore season.

Puka Nacua, Orem HS, 2019 – Nacua is obviously a Power 5 talent, and one of the most overall gifted athletes in the state.  In saying that, the most impressive thing about him, is his character.  For being such a star talent and big time recruit, Nacua is as humble and respectful as they come.  We’ve come away very impressed from our conversations with him. Big time talent, and big time character.

Sione Moa, Weber HS, 2019 – Moa is a legit Power 5 talent.  Our staff likes him as a receiver on the D1 level, but we also belive he could play multiple positions and excel.  Sione’s father was a legend at the University of Utah.  Sione has the potential to due just as much on the D1 level, if not more.

D1 Caliber – Wide Receivers (2019)

Here are the D1 caliber wide receivers.  Any of these players can lead the state of Utah in receiving.  Each of them should be heavily evaluated by D1 schools:

(listed in alphabetical order, according to first name)

Kaden Smith, Wasatch HS, 2019 – Smith had one of the most impressive performances at Rising Stars.  He is tall, fast, and skilled.  He should be on every school’s D1 radar.  He has the talent to be the top receiver in the state.

Kyrese Rowan-White, 2019 – The Rowan-White is making is second appearance on our list, which is very hard to do.  He’s a talent at every position he plays on the field.  There are some who believe that Rowan-White’s best position is at receiver.  He is another player that we’re very high on.

Jeff Save, Hunter HS, 2019 – Save is a matchup nightmare with his size and speed.  He is easily the biggest receiver of the group, and could possibly project as a tight end on the D1 level.  Don’t be surprised if Power 5 schools offer him.

Mason Familiar, Hunter HS, 2019 – Familiar had an outstanding day at Rising Stars. He was burning guys deep left and right.  We love what he brings to the table.  He is a legitimate D1 caliber player.

Nate Mahi, Dixie HS, 2019 – This is Mahi’s second appearance on the list, and it is well deserved.  Mahi is a dangerous slot receiver.  Our staff believes that he would do very well at that position on the D1 level.

Tim Van Leeuwen, Logan HS, 2019 – Van Leeuwen had strong performances at the Central Utah D1 Showcase, as well as Rising Stars.  He earned a D1 rating, and is poised to have a breakout year.

Top Underclassmen

Here are the top underclassmen, in the state at Utah:

(listed in alphabetical order, according to first name)

Dallin Anderson, Weber HS, 2020 – Anderson is ranked the top underclassmen, at the wide receiver position.  He dominated the Northern Utah D1 Showcase, and our staff has been raving about him ever since.

Izaiah Moten, Pine View HS, 2020 – Moten is following the footsteps of his talented older brother.  He looked really good at the Southern Utah D1 Showcase.  He has the potential to lead the state in receiving yards.

Keaton Schweitzer, Dixie HS, 2020 – The Dixie product had solid performances at Rising Stars, and the Southern Utah D1 Showcase.  Schweitzer is talented.

Kieran Fry, Bonneville HS, 2020 – Fry put together one of the top performances of any receiver at Rising Stars.  He was burning numbers DBs left and right.  We’re expected him to have a monster year.

Raymond Cardova, Hurricane HS, 2020 – Cardova is one of the most talented underclassmen on this list.  We evaluated him at the Southern Utah – D1 Showcase, as well as Rising Stars, and came away very impressed.
