ScoutTV: Junior Highlights

Carthage (MS) High School has three seniors that have the talent to play on the D-I level - WR/KR/PR Antonio Ricks, WR O'Neal Wilder and DE/TE Cedric Hall. In this ScoutTV video presentation you get the chance to see all three in action during the 2005 season.

No. 3, Wide Receiver Antonio Ricks (6-2, 185). Ricks, who has been All-State the past two seasons, is as good of a senior receiver as I have seen in Mississippi this year, talent-wise. If he can do it in the classroom this year, a lot of D-I schools will take a long, hard look at this extremely talented youngster. -

No. 15, Wide Receiver O'Neal Wilder (6-4.5, 190). If you can believe this, O'Neal is actually faster than Ricks. This is only his second year to play organized football, so he's still a babe in the woods as far as football is concerned. With a little more experience, he could turn out to be a very special player. He's also an excellent track athlete and plays basketball as well. -

No. 88, Defensive End/Tight End Cedric Hall. Cedric has the size (6-5, 230) and speed (4.9 seconds forty) to be a defensive end on the next level. He's also got the frame to bulk up and play defensive tackle in college. -
