Spring Preview: WRs

Spring football started Tuesday at the University of Miami. Read on for a preview of the wide receiver position.

Stacy Coley -- One of the team's most talented players, Coley was outstanding as a true freshman in 2013 when he had close to 600 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. He also had close to 800 return yards and two scores. He was mainly a non-factor as a sophomore in 2014 but showed flashes of excellence as a junior last season. He finished the season with 689 yards and four touchdowns and was often times Brad Kaaya's favorite target. He was taken off the return teams last season. Coley is a legit candidate to have a major breakout season in the team's new offense.

Braxton Berrios -- After playing in 13 games as a true freshman -- and starting four of them -- Berrios didn't have the same sophomore season in 2015. He has 33 career receptions but is averaging less than 10 yards per catch and went without a touchdown last season. He and Lewis are pretty much the same player but coaches are hoping Berrios develops into a legit threat from the slot.

Malcolm Lewis -- A fifth year senior, Lewis has played in 37 games throughout his career and has started 11 of them. Despite being the team's most experienced receiver, he's never been a difference maker. He has just 45 receptions in four seasons and has averaged under 10 yards per catch throughout his career. Lewis, who has scored two touchdowns as a Hurricane, provides experience to this group but the team is hoping he develops into more of a downfield threat in the new offense.

Lawrence Cager -- He was able to jump over Langham and recently departed D'Mauri Jones on the depth chart soon after arriving here last fall. He played in 11 games as a true freshman in 2015 and caught eight passes for 70 yards and a score. He wasn't an impact player but he showed flashes of being able to develop into one.

Darrell Langham -- A somewhat heavily recruited player coming out of high school, Langham redshirted in 2014 and was unable to break into the rotation last season. The third-year sophomore was raw coming in here and many thought it'd be a couple years before he made an impact. The time is now.
