South: Top Five Wide Receivers

The South has some very good wide receivers in the 2013 class and we take a look at the best of the best right here.

South: Top Five Wide Receivers
Hometown: Oakland Park, Fla.
High School: Northeast
Size: 6-1/175
Recruiting: Coley can pretty much go where he wants to go. Florida may have the early lead.
Scouting Report: Coley has the tools to be a number one receiver on the next level. He is a very fluid wideout with speed, a quick burst off the ball, and great body control. He can be a homerun threat down the field and make a big play in space as a wideout or return man. He is still very thin and he needs to add weight and strength, but that will come in time. He can run more crisp routes as well. In the end, he can be as good as he wants to be.
Hometown: Jacksonville, Fla.
High School: Bishop Kenny
Size: 6-4/200
Recruiting: Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Ohio State, and USC are Fulwood's top seven.
Scouting Report: Fulwood is an elite wide receiver. He has size you can't coach, he catches everything within his reach, he has deceptive speed, and he is someone who can really make big plays down the field. He can improve getting off the ball with quickness, his overall strength, and his down the field blocking. There are so many things to like about his game and he will be among the best in 2013. He is a very fluid receiver with size.
Hometown: Charlotte, N.C.
High School: Mallard Creek
Size: 6-3/210
Recruiting: North has offers from all over, Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, North Carolina State, and Ohio State are schools of interest he has mentioned recently.
Scouting Report: North has the tools to be a special player on the next level. He has the size of top college wideouts right now and he has shown break-away time and time again at receiver and as a return man on special teams. He has very good speed, so good it may surprise some, and he is a real threat down the field. He can sell his routes better and just become a little more consistent. He could be one of the the best in the country.
Hometown: Birmingham, Ala.
High School: Fultondale
Size: 6-1/185
Recruiting: Committed to Alabama.
Scouting Report: Stewart is an elite athlete that does so many things well on the football field. He plays quarterback in high school where he accounted for over 50 touchdowns as a junior, but he will end up at another position on the next level. He will play receiver or safety. He is very explosive, he has great top-end speed, and he is dangerous with the ball in his hands. His ball skills are a strength too, he has 10 interceptions in 2011.
Hometown: Goose Creek, S.C.
High School: Goose Creek
Size: 6-0/185
Recruiting: Committed to Georgia
Scouting Report: Terry is an athlete. He can do so many good things on the football field. He may have the most upside at corner, but he is most comfortable on the offensive side of the ball. He could be used as a wide receiver or running back on offense. He is a natural on the football field. His size could limit him at receiver, but be a strength at corner. His ball skills and ability to change direction quickly is big on either side of the ball.

The Next Five: Mike Williams (Holly Hill, S.C.), Tony Stevens (Orlando, Fla.), Rickey Jefferson (Destrehan, La.), Demarcus Robinson (Fort Valley, Ga.), and Taj Williams (Tallahassee, Fla.).
