2013 OC Football Watch List -- Receivers

Moe Ways – Birmingham Detroit Country Day
The most dangerous receiving threat that Oakland County has to offer, Ways has proven as sure handed as it gets at wide receiver whether it’s making catches on deep routes or over the middle and is as good of a “big play” receiver as you will find in the area.

Jacob Hill – Birmingham Detroit Country Day
A true downfield threat for the Yellowjackets, Hill is one of the best when it comes to stretching the field which helps allow other receivers and skill position players find space in the open field and can also create for himself in a number of different ways.

Tristian Wiegers – Birmingham Detroit Country Day
Has obvious chemistry with his brother and star quarterback Tyler Wiegers, Tristian has been a very reliable receiver on both the short routes as well as some of the deeper routes and keeps secondaries spread out with another legitimate receiver.

Derrick Coleman – Birmingham Detroit Country Day
A big, physical tight end that will force opposing defenses to keep an eye on him in the passing game and will bring a lot to the run game with his blocking ability.

Corey Lacanaria – Birmingham Brother Rice
Has some of the best hands in the area and is capable of making just about any catch thrown in his direction and will once again be a reliable member of the Brother Rice receiving corps for a number of different reasons.

Joshua Flye – Birmingham Brother Rice
Much like Lacanaria, Flye is capable of making the tough catch in traffic and can be a legitimate deep threat down the field for Alex Malzone thanks to his elite speed and athleticism.

Damaris Woods – Birmingham Brother Rice
Could have a break out year and add another weapon to an already dangerous receiving group at Brother Rice with his ability to both stretch the field and make defenders miss when he gets the ball in space.

Grant Perry – Birmingham Brother Rice
Proved to be a dangerous threat at times last season for the Warriors, Perry is another true playmaker that the Brother Rice offense will have at its disposal in the 2013 season thanks to his sure hands and explosiveness.

Anthony Gunn – Pontiac Notre Dame Prep
Gunn proved to be as reliable and dangerous of a threat from the wide receiver position last year for the Irish and figures to take another step in his junior year this fall and should be the go-to guy for Brenden Newvine in the aerial attack.

Marquian Johnson – Clawson
One of the most dangerous and exciting pure playmakers in the area, Johnson has proven throughout his career that he is capable of making a big play at almost any time and will catch just about any ball thrown in his direction.

Sean Scullen -- Stoney Creek 
Will do a lot of everything this year for the Cougars, but will do plenty of damage from the wide receiver position with his play-making ability and versatility. Very sure-handed in the passing game and can hurt you in a number of different ways.

Desmond Fitzpatrick – Farmington
With just his freshman year under his belt, Fitzpatrick has already picked up a Big 10 offer after showing he is capable of being the next Oakland County star receiver. With his speed, hands and route running, Fitzpatrick is in for a big 2013 season.

Cole Chewins – Clarkston
One of the most complete tight ends that the area has to offer, Chewins is capable of stretching defenses as well as making the tough catches in traffic and is one of the best when it comes to blocking in the run game for the Wolves.

Khalil Gracey -- Bloomfield Hills
A big athletic receiver, Gracey has all the makings of a big time Division 1 receiver and should be the go-to receiver for starting quarterback Spencer McCourt this fall. Gracey's speed, athleticism and jumping ability is something very few high school corner backs can match up with

Zak Arnold – Lake Orion
The Dragons will return quite a bit to their receiving corps, and Arnold figures to play a big role in what could be a dangerous passing attack for the Dragons as he is one of several Lake Orion receivers who can break a big play at any time.

Corey Ester – Lake Orion
Ester has proven in the past that he is capable of making a big play whether it’s running the ball, or catching it, but in the receiving game, he causes several matchup problems for defenses thanks in large part to his speed.

Wade Morris – South Lyon East
A dangerous receiver in a number of ways, Morris is a true threat in the passing game, whether it’s making the shorter catches to move the sticks, or making long receptions for big plays, he can hurt you in a number of ways.

Jordan Billingslea – Southfield
One of the many speed demons Southfield has to offer, Billingslea is as good as it gets when it comes to stretching the field or getting the ball in open space and will be one of the area’s most dangerous receivers all season long.

Jalen Watts-Jackson – Orchard Lake St. Mary’s
One of the best two-way players Oakland County has to offer, Watts-Jackson has turned himself into one of the area’s most consistent receivers during his career with his hands and play-making ability.

Tyson Smith – Orchard Lake St. Mary’s

Smith, much like Watts-Jackson, will be a dangerous two-way player for the Eaglets this fall and figures to be another legitimate target for incoming quarterback Garrett Edgell in both the deep and short passing game.

Nate Conrad -- Orchard Lake St. Mary's
Was used quite a bit as a blocker last year for the Eaglets, but when given the chance, proved to be a reliable target in the passing game and should see more passes thrown his way in the 2013 season.

Beau Wilhelm – Lakeland
A very good athlete who can make big plays in the passing game when asked to, but what hurts teams most is his ability to hang on to the ball and make defenders miss in the open field.

Lucas Bazerra – Troy Athens
A dominant tight end in almost every aspect, Bazerra is as sure-handed of a tight end as you will find, and is capable of being an excellent blocker in the run game for the Red Hawks as well.

Brad Govan – Lakeland
Can help stretch the field on offense with his size and ability to haul in a long pass, Govan is also a perfect fit for a run heavy Lakeland team with his ability to block down field.

Chris Cliff – Walled Lake Northern
Proved he is a legitimate threat to secondaries in his sophomore campaign, Cliff should be one of the area’s best receivers with his hands and will likely be one of the fastest wide outs you will see this season.

Juan Webb – Waterford Kettering
A top end athlete, Webb can make defenses pay in a number of ways with the ball in his hands, whether it’s down the field for a long pass, or a shorter pass, he’s capable of finding the end zone on almost any play.
