Maurice Massey, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound wide receiver from Saint Charles (Mo.) Francis Howell North is a prospect to track closely in the 2019 cycle. Looking at his combo of size and athleticism he is going to be a national name in recruiting circles.
"In a one-on-one situation I am going up to get it, regardless," Massey said. "My strength is going up and getting it and making plays. I am going to go up and get that ball.
"I pattern my game after Calvin Johnson, Antonio Brown, I love his footwork."
Massey is already starting to generate a lot of recruiting interest, he has secured his first three scholarship offers.
My very first offer was Iowa, and that was amazing. I had never been to a school before and they showed me around their campus and stuff like that. Right after that Iowa State came, and they were cool too. I would not want to have to pick between them. I like both of them a lot."
"Then, Boston College called and I got my third one," Massey continued. "I also have gotten in contact with Mizzou and a few other schools here and there."
Massey already has offers from three different Power Five Conferences, but he is still hungry for more. He has his eyes in two programs in the Big 10 Conference, who just happen to be the most bitter of rivals: Ohio State and Michigan.
"See my dream school is Ohio State," Massey said. "Their coaches, they have always just been a winning team, and their players like Braxton Miller and Zeke (Ezekiel Elliott), I would love to play there."
Massey explained that the rivalry and the caliber of the UM program is what has the Wolverines also high on his wish list. "That's why," Massey answered when asked about the rivalry and his high interest in Michigan as a potential landing spot.
"That is always a good game every time they play and that is why I am always trying to watch."
"I am just trying to be the best I can be," Massey closed.
