MVP Camp Top Performers: Wide Receivers

Dawg Post takes a look at the top performers at wide receiver during the Lassiter MVP Camp.

Genuine Potts, 2018, McEachern (GA):

A prospect on the rise for 2018, Potts is a guy who loves to compete.  He has good size at 6-foot-3 192-pounds, and was tough to cover for even the best defensive backs in attendance.  Potts caught multiple jump balls over a defender, and was a big-play threat all day with his strong double move.  He got held quite a few times and was the recipient of some bad throws as well, but Potts proved that he could be one of the top receivers in Georgia for the 2018 class. Potts has the chance for a breakout junior season this fall with the help of his quarterback, Bailey Hockman, a Florida State commitment.  Potts has offer from Troy and UMASS, with teams like Michigan State, Vanderbilt, Duke, Southern Miss, and Iowa all showing interest.

Jeremy Horton, 2018, Veterans (GA):

Horton is another rising junior that has been impressive the past couple weeks.  Not a real big guy at 5-foot-8 160-pounds, but he showed great quickness and the ability to create seperation.  He showed consistent hands, and made multiple tough grabs while falling to the ground.  The term "shifty" comes to mind when watching him.  He has good change of direction ability.  He is a versatile athlete who plays offense, defense, and special teams.  He has a swagger about him as well that stood out.  He is a confident player who loves to compete.  He is a name to remember in the 2018 class.

David Durden, 2017, ECI (GA):

The biggest surprise prospect for me was ECI receiver David Durden.  The 6-foot-2 191-pound receiver looks well put together, and stole the show with his 4.53 40-yard dash.  e is a big target who has great speed.  He showed good hands and used his boy well in shielding defenders away in order to make the tough catch.  Durden caught most of the passes thrown his way, and stepped his game up even more in the showcase.  Durden tweeted out yesterday that he ran a 4.4 40-yard dash in yesterday's sattelite camp at LakePoint.  The sleeper 2017 prospect has zero offers at the moment but some major programs will start taking notice soon. 

Brannon Spector, 2019, Calhoun (GA):

Another tough football player from Calhoun, Spector was could not be stopped all day. The 6-foot-1 173-pound north Georgia native showed great hands and the ability to get behind the defenders.  He runs a good route and has the ability to get by defenders.  Spector was able to make big plays downfield, and beat almost every defensive back that he went up against.  Spector's older brother is headed to play for Clemson, and there could be major programs that start looking Brannon's way as well.
