There are many schools in Michigan ready to air it out this season and that of course, cannot happen without talented wide receivers. Here is a look at some of the state's best as we continue our preview of the 2007 high school season.
NOTE: A couple two way players were projected at other positions and hence, are not on this list.
Fred Smith - Detroit Southeastern
Sam Gaymon - Detroit Renaissance
Jimmy Saros - Grosse Pointe South
Blocker Fred Smith - Detroit Southeastern
Run After the Catch Cammeron Cheatham - Kalamazoo Central
Big, more than adequate speed and excellent shake and athleticism for his size. Can really go up and get the ball and has the kind of confidence you like in a receiver.
Ready for a big season, Gaymon is a long strider with better playing speed than timed speed. He does the little things well too; good route runner and good hands.
Grosse Pointe South
Saros might not be the fastest guy, but he is an exceptional athlete who has a lot of polish. Great hands, good route runner and has shown he can run by people and get deep.
Anthony Anchrum Detroit Cass Tech
He's been slept on a little bit, but Anchrum is a really good athlete who can make things happen after the catch and also go up and get it.
Elias Kos Holland Christian
Great size and strength, but don't forget he is a track kid who can really run. Also a hard worker and tough competitor.
Daryl Gooden Ann Arbor Huron
Bruce Horner Birmingham Groves
Corey Johnson Muskegon
Not very big, but very explosive, Cheatham is a dangerous open field runner who will fit in perfectly in Cincinnati's offense.
Dezmond Hart Detroit Crockett
Hart is a fine athlete who could play on either side of the ball in college. Quick out of his breaks, good hands and can make some things happen when he gets it.
Kason Dickerson Detroit Northwestern
Dickerson is one of the state's most physical receivers. He is a tough kid who doesn't back down. Just needs to get a little bit faster.
Israel Woolfork Livonia Franklin
Sanders is one to watch. He was nearly uncoverable at the camps he went to this summer. Very quick and slippery and should have a niche as a slot guy/return man at the next level.
Tony Fountain Whitehall
Danny McKinney Melvindale
Underrated and under the radar, Whitfield has size and athleticism and some lucky school will be getting a steal.
Tyrone Ward Flint Southwestern
Myles White Livonia Stevenson
Overshadowed by Anthony Hollis and Kason Dickerson, DeFoe can really play and is a sleeper to remember.
Julian Wyatt Southfield
Omar Haynes Muskegon Heights
Birmingham Brother Rice
