Rahmir Cottman


Big wide receivers are the trend in football these days with players like USC's Mike Williams, Pittsburgh's Larry Fitzgerald, and Texas' Roy Williams. So it would make sense for college recruiters to pursuit such athletes. Rahmir Cottman (WR/CB, 6'3"-170lbs, 4.5) is one of those big WRs with the physical abilities that college programs are looking for. As a junior, he had 36 catches for 720 yards and 6 TDs. On the defensive side of the ball, he played CB and accounted for 3 tackles and 3 INTS in 3 games. He lists his strengths as height, speed, field awareness, and jumping ability. His jumping ability should not be quickly overlooked; he has a 40 inch vertical leap; which is pretty impressive for a 6'3" WR.


A number of college programs are very interested. Among them are Maryland, Ohio State, Michigan, Syracuse, Virginia, UCLA, Pitt, Kentucky, West Virginia and Rutgers.
