Unsurprisingly, receiver talent was on full display during Thursday's action at the Adidas Texas 7v7 Championships Division II pool-play contests.
Here's a look at some of the top performers:
Tren'Davion Dickson, 2016 WR, Navasota-- Dickson really stood out on a day where receivers were the story. We saw him against Abilene Wylie and he started the contest with a length-of-the-field touchdown grab on the game's first play. He later made a seemingly effortless double-move on an out-and-up that freed him for another long touchdown on a textbook over-the-shoulder grab. At 6-foot, 170 pounds, Dickson has room to add positive weight to his long, lean, and angular frame. Surprisingly, he has not yet received an offer, but he mentioned several in-state schools, such as Baylor, Texas, and Texas A&M, as programs that have shown interest.
Michael Irvin, 2016 WR, Plano Prestonwood Christian-- the size and the name are the first aspects that jump at you when watching Irvin (pictured at top), who is the son of the former Dallas Cowboys great and NFL Hall of Famer. At 6-foot-2 and north of 200 pounds, Irvin had one of the day's best catches on a diving touchdown grab along the boundary in the front-left corner of the end zone during Prestonwood's second game of the afternoon. Irvin already has a Miami offer and said he's hearing from many other schools.
Blake Lynch, 2015 WR, Gilmer-- Lynch looked every bit of his listed 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, if not larger. Lynch is making the transition from quarterback to receiver at Gilmer after an offseason move, but he definitely looked the part Thursday. He has good speed and his size and body control help him consistently win balls against smaller defenders. The Baylor commit also played very well on defense at safety, where he broke up multiple passes during the action we saw.
Quinten Dormady, 2015 QB, Boerne-- Boerne did not advance to Friday's championship bracket, but it certainly wasn't Dormady's fault. The Tennessee commit played like you'd expect an SEC-bound quarterback prospect to play. Dormady has good upside physically as he's tall and lean, so he has plenty of room to add weight. He gets rid of the ball quickly and sets his feet decisively with not much wasted motion.
Sam Mays, 2015 WR, Houston Kinkaid-- Mays was another impressive receiver with a tall, long frame that should make Illinois very happy about his commitment last week. At 6-foot-3 1/2, 181 pounds, Mays runs better than you'd expect a lanky high school receiver to run, especially down the field, once he gets his long-striding frame going.
