Under Armour: Two WRs Shine

ORLANDO, Fla. - One wide receiver from each team stood out the most in my eyes and I talk about their performance on day one here.

Both wide receivers are ranked in the Scout300, so I expected good things out of each this week and both delivered on day one.

On Team White, the top wide receiver was Jarvis Landry. The LSU commitment was hard to cover all day and showed sticky hands when my eyes were on him. He is not someone that blows by defenders and shows elite speed, but he runs elite routes and gets open against all types of coverages. He can settle in the soft spot against zone, he can get off the ball against press coverage, and he just seemed to be open all day today. He got better separation down the field than I have seen in the past as well. He is showing he is more than just a possession type of receiver.

On Team Red, Florida commitment JaJuan Story was the top guy. Louisville commitment Eli Rogers had a nice performance as well, but Story was the guy from early on. He really caught the ball well away from his body, he showed big, strong hands throughout the day, and he made some nice adjustments on balls thrown towards the wrong shoulder, low, and/or high as well. He is a big wideout at 6-foot-4, 192 pounds and he still has a good bit of room to grow, especially in the lowerbody. He could end up being a 215 pound receiver on the next level with good speed in the open field and a big weapon inside the 20 yard line.
