It might be the year of the jumbo receiver out West. Coaches have already flocked to the region to check on some of the top receiver prospects.
Andrews has become one of the hottest prospects in the nation.
The 2014 class appears to be top heavy with talent but could be lacking in depth. In any event, there is a great group of play-makers that will have college coaches working overtime to bring aboard.
Below is a list of some of the top targets and where things stand with each.
Mark Andrews (Scottsdale, Ariz. Desert Mountain) - Andrews is a big time national target in a top heavy Arizona class. At 6-foot-6, 225-pounds he's got the physical tools making college coaches drool. Oklahoma, Notre Dame, UCLA and ASU are a few schools that have his early attention. He remains pretty open at this time however.
Michiah Quick (Fresno, Calif. Central East campus) - Quick is another speedster from the Fresno area. It helps the four-star has spent last season practicing against four-star corners John Johnson and L.J. Moore in the 2013 class. Quick remains relatively quiet on the recruiting front but seems to be favoring Pac-12 schools Washington, Cal and UCLA among others.
Dallis Todd (La Mirada, Calif. La Mirada) - Todd has blown up on the scene and is another big-framed receiver at 6-foot-5, 210-pounds. His recruitment has sky-rocketed in the last few weeks including Ohio State and others. The Buckeyes have made an early impression but things will get heated for this elite player.
Barry Ware (Corona, Calif. Centennial) - Ware is a relatively unknown prospect outside the Pac-12 region. He is still waiting on his first offer but could be in line for a big Spring. Oregon, UCLA and Cal are a few programs he's hoping to get involved with. After watching his film that may only be a matter of time.
Jalen Brown (Phoenix, Ariz. Mountain Pointe) - Brown is one of the better pure receivers out West. Ohio State, Oklahoma and USC are a few of his early offers. Brown keeps a relatively low profile with regards to media, he remains relatively open at this time.
Jalen Harvey (El Cerrito, Calif. Cerrito Senior) - Harvey is a physical receiver that may have his best football still to come. He's learning the nuances of the position and is being considered to play safety by college recruiters. Like Barry Ware, he is still not widely known on the recruiting trail nationally but that will change this Spring.
Alex Van Dyke (Elk Grove, Calif. Consumnes Oaks) - Another Sacramento area standout will be one to watch. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound prep has nearly a half-dozen early offers and will certainly have a shot to earn more this Spring. Recruits from this area often favor schools within the Pac-12 conference, particularly Cal, Oregon and Washington among others.
Dionte Sykes (Chandler, Ariz.) - At 6-foot-4, 200-pounds Sykes has supreme size at the receiver position. ASU has made an early impression on the three-star, but UCLA, Oregon and others could make a move with nearly a year until signing day.
