Lovejoy MVP Camp: Top WRs

Dawg Post breaks down some of the top receivers during the Lovejoy MVP Camp.

Amir Spivey, 2019, Westlake:

A top performer on the day, the speedy receiver didn’t stand out physically, but was consistent all day with his route running and ability to create separation. He ran a great 40 time and stood out more and more as the day went on.

Zach Goss, 2019, Pickens County:

Although he didn’t bring home an award, it was easy to notice the 2019 standout. Goss has great size at 6-foot-3 180-pounds with excellent speed. He needs to continue working on his route running, but he was still tough to cover and showed good hands once again. He was impressive a few weeks ago as well at the Georgia Elite Showcase. Look for Goss to start becoming a major prospect in the 2019 class.

Genuine Potts, 2018, McEachern:

Like always, Potts continues to impress in the camp setting. He looks bigger than he did at Rising Seniors, but he big play ability is still there. He has always had reliable hands, but his route running has improved dramatically over the past two years. He got open consistently, and was a top receiver in the showcase. Multiple schools have started to offer Potts this spring including West Virginia, Miami (OH), Tulane, Georgia State, among others.

Jeremy Horton, 2018, Veterans:

Maybe the most underrated receiver in the state, Horton is a true competitor who always seems so impress. He isn’t the biggest guy, but he’s quick, agile, changes direction with ease, showed great hands, can make the catch in traffic, and showed great balance on the sideline. He is so tough to cover and is dangerous after the catch. He was easily one of the best receivers in attendance. If he were a couple inches taller his offer list would quadruple.

Michael Robertson, 2020, Callaway:

One of the bigger prospects in attendance was Callaway athlete Michael Robertson Jr. He could have lined up at running back and defensive back, but Robertson decided to showcase his talents at receiver. He showed quick feet, ability to create space, and caught almost every ball thrown his way. He sure didn’t look like a freshman out there, and proved why he is already becoming a national prospect.

There were quite a few receiver prospects out there, and it was certainly a deep group. While it was tough to watch everyone, there were a few others who also impressed during 1 on 1s.

Michael Mathison, 2019, Newton:

Another Newton product who had a consistent day. Showed good balance and reliable hands.

EJ Turner, 2018, Cartersville:

As productive a receiver as you’ll find. He is a tough matchup and continues to impress. Look for him to have a monster senior season in 2017.

Javon Henderson, 2018, Our Lady of Mercy:

Great size for a guy who moved to WR from QB. Henderson will continue to get better and better as he learns the position. He needs to work on getting off the ball quicker but he stood out as the day progressed.

William Huzzie, 2018, Duluth:

Another prospect with size who ran well in his 40. Looks like a solid prospect physically.

Jaelyn Lay, 2018, Riverdale:

Lay stood out immediately at 6-foot-5 214-pounds. Runs well for his size and used his size to his advantage over smaller defensive backs.

Tyrese Peacock, 2018, Newton:

One of the most consistent receivers out there. Ran crisp routes, showed good hands, and caught every pass during the reps I saw. Peacock had a great day.

Wesley Potter, 2018, Sequoyah:

Another guy who impressed as the day went on. Good size at 6-foot-3 180-pounds who made some acrobatic catches during 1 on 1s. He does a great job attacking the ball in the air and came down with some great catches while being covered tight.
