Junior Wide Receiver Paul Oliver out of Carl Harrison High School in Marietta, Georgia has incredible speed as well as superb jumping ability.
Last season, Oliver (6'0, 188) recorded nine interceptions as an all-area cornerback, and was named the defensive player of the year for Cobb County by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He also was named an all-state performer as well.
And the accolades don't stop there.
On offense he had a banner year, bringing in 31 receptions for over 700 yards and 12 touchdowns as a wide receiver. He also had over 1,300 yards on punt and kick returns, and was all-county special teams performer as well.
You might wonder how Oliver is able to put up such impressive numbers on offense, defense, and special teams. Quite simply, its because of his speed. He has been timed at under 4.4 in the forty yard dash on several occasions, with his lowest time being right under 4.35. He is an excellent athlete with a 37-inch vertical leap and the uncanny ability to go up with the taller receivers and defensive backs to make the big play.
Oliver has a whole list of schools after him, including Clemson, Georgia, Florida, Auburn, and South Carolina. You can bet that list will grow once the high school football season kicks into high gear this August.
We will continue to keep you updated on Paul Oliver as we receive more information throughout the year.
