MVP Camp: Top Wide Receivers

The wide receiver group during Atlanta's MVP camp last Sunday showcased some of the best receivers in the south, and was possibly the most talented position group during camp. One receiver has already seen his recruitment blow up, and there are a few more who should see more offers come their way shortly.

Jeremiah Holloman, WR, Newton (GA):

The player who stood out the most in the receiver group had to be Newton (GA) receiver Jeremiah Holloman.  The 6-foot-2 190-pound Holloman dominated defensive backs the entire day, and showed great hands and body control throughout the day.  Holloman was named overall MVP of the camp, and has earned offers from South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Auburn after his breakout performance.

Chad Terrell WR, North Paulding (GA):

Terrell is another guy who could see more offers coming his way.  The 6-foot-3 209-pound possession receiver certainly looks the part, and showed the ability to beat man coverage on a consistent basis.  South Carolina, Ole Miss, Miami (OH), Georgia Tech, Illinois, and Kansas State have all offered the three-star prospect. Terrell caught 51 passes for 826 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.

Corey Reed Jr, WR, Roswell (GA)

After playing in the state championship game last season, the Roswell Hornets add an explosive play-maker in Corey Reed, who played for Mays (GA) last season.  Reed has good size at 6-foot-3 195-pounds and showed consistent hands throughout the day.  If the ball was catch-able, Reed made that catch.  Kentucky, Louisville, Wake Forest, Miami, and Maryland have all offered the talented 2017 prospect so far.

Genuine Potts, WR, McEachern (GA)

The McEachern Indians seem to produce quality D1 prospects every year, particularly at wide receiver the past couple of years.  It was Tyler Simmons in the 2016 class who committed to Georgia, Tyler Smith in the 2017 class who is currently committed to North Carolina, and it looks like Genuine Potts will be the next Indians receiver who start collecting major offers.  The sophomore receiver made two of the best catches of the day.  He showed the ability to make a catch over a defender, and also showed good balance while catching on the sideline.  Potts showed good hands as well to go along with his

Malik Route, WR, Lovejoy (GA)

Route was the most explosive reliever at the MVP camp.  With his 5-foot-6 148-pound frame, many didn't expect much from Route coming into the day, but he had jaws dropping after some serious moves.  Route changes direction extremely well, he has quick feet, has good instincts, the ability to make the first man miss, and the ability to create separation from defenders.  With the ball in his hands, he was tough to stop all day long.Route proved at the MVP camp that he is one of the best slot receivers and return specialist in the state.
