Caleb Barber, 6-4, 205, WR, 2023, Hagerty @calebbarber2023
Caleb is a player that is one of the top size WRs out there, 6-4, 205, this guy is both very big and very physical and also has been a player that has shown he can make some of those tough catches down the field and be a game changer type of athlete in the 2023 class. Barber had 42 receptions on the 2021 season and finished off a stellar year with 804 receiving yards, and scored eight touchdowns on the year. Guy that can make it happen deep down the field, size should place him on many college radars for the next level.
Antonio Ferguson, 6-4, 235, TE, 2023, Apopka @dareal_ferguson
One of the elite radar makers for his power frame and size to dominate at the TE position, Ferguson, a 6-4, 235 huge bodied WR is one of the hottest next level potential guys out there and grabbed an early South Florida offer from the Bulls program. Marshall is another college that has this very impressive play maker in their sights to know. One of the most relentless workers also, you can tell he has a great passion and hunger for the game which will take him a long way.

Gavin Haines, 6-2, 180, WR, 2023, Bishop Moore @GavinHaines10
Haines we like as one of the most underrated up and coming ‘23 talents in the Orlando area, this guys has a very impressive build, you can tell some guys are big time athletes, Haines has a lean and strong frame, add in 6-2 for his height and you have a WR that can go up and make the big plays over smaller DBs also, we love him as a hot Deep ball threat to know in the Bishop Moore passing game, good looking play maker, also can use his size and speed at safety as a hard hitter and top play maker in the defensive backfield.
Bryce Harrison, 6-6, TE, WR, 2023, Apopka @BryceHarrison2x
Apopka really has some deep talent and big talent at WR/TE, no doubt one of those must see ‘23s is 6-6 inch huge power block and downhill enforcer Bryce Harrison. Maryland and Florida State have him on the radar among the many D1 schools, Miami (Ohio) is a team that is looking hard at this huge big man at end as well, we really think he is a player whose stock will grow even more with a big senior year, have to love the potential to be a huge college impact maker for this very long and powerful rangy TE/WR from Apopka.
Lavon Hudson, 5-11, 180, WR, 2023, Central Florida Christian Academy @LavonHudson8
Hudson is one of the WRs that we like as a big stock riser, a play that has proven he can get behind the defense and be a big play making threat for the Central Florida Christian Academy offense, has very long strides for 5-11, can cover the ground quickly and is a hard worker at WR also that keeps working to get open to give his QB more time to make a play with his relentless work ethic and hustle in the open field. Has a lot of potential to be a big time go to play maker. 278 yards receiving and a guy that could go for 700 plus as a senior in 2022.
Jaqwayvius Lake, WR, 2023, Winter Park @QwayLake5
A player that makes the riser list for us, good looking athlete and a guy that is one of the potential talents that will be looking to have a very big final season for the Lyman program. Lake reports a time of 4.5 in the 40 yard dash, no doubt we like him as one of the emerging speed threats for Orlando’s top beat his man type of WRs to know in the 2023 class, Lake had 136 yards receiving and a pair of TDs in 2021,. No doubt could be a over 500 yard guy in the upcoming year and jump onto several big college radars with a big 2022 campaign ahead.
Chip McCuiston, 5-8, 160, WR, 2023, Celebration @ChipMccuiston10
One of the players that is a very impressive looking get up the field and make a big yards after catch type of athlete, very good upfield vision, a player that can also play DB and is a good looking athlete to take some major notice of in the 2023 class. Chip had 624 yards receiving on 50 receptions in 2021, no doubt a play that can add up the big plays and yards, no doubt see him going for 1,000 yards receiving as a senior and a go to play maker, will use his experience as a junior to be even tougher in the open field and be top Orlando area riser among WRs to know.
Lucio Mesidor, 5-10, 170, WR, 2023, Evans @LucioMesidor
One of the WRs that we will for sure be keeping an eye on for his senior season at Evans High, Mesidor is a big time looking talent, a player that has a good physical frame and could emerge and put his name on several college radars with a big final season in 2022 for the Evans program. Mesidor is one of the top deep ball threats coming up and is a guy that also has some nice hands and can make those tough catches look easy at times.
Julian Nasco, 5-11, 151, WR, 2023, St. Cloud @NascoJulian
Nasco is a high energy WR prospect out of St. Cloud, this 5-11, 151 target is a player that made some very tough and impressive catches and makes our top hands list for some of his haul ins this past year, has big time potential and showed a lot of that in games in 2021 with 351 yards receiving and making lots of key chain moving grabs for the St. Cloud offense. Makes our list as one of the emerging WR stars to know in the Orlando area and expecting colleges to start taking more and more notice very soon.
Torian Roberts, 5-11, 170, WR, 2023, Winter Park @TorianRoberts1
One of the top hands guys out there, a guy that can catch anything you throw his way and one of the top play makers for being a speed threat out there, this WInter Park baller and three sport athlete at Winter Park High School had a big year in 2021 and was named a Orlando Sentinel Super 60 selection along with being named a Second Team All-Conference selection as well, no doubt we see him being a first team All-Conference MVP type offensive weapon as a senior for Winter Park, a guy that is loaded for speed and talent and had 311 yards with four TDs in 2021.

Derrick Rogers, 6-1, 170, WR, 2023, Evans @kantguard2
This big time athlete has been a player that we could see getting a tremendous amount of college interest with a big senior year to follow up a very impressive junior season in 2021. Rogers had 727 yards receiving on the year and his 11 touchdowns receiving led the Jones program also, could be that type of 1,200 yard receiver in 2022, no doubt a rangy speed play maker, a great athletic built frame, sky is the limit for his potential at the next level. FAU and Ole Miss offered early for this hot radar maker to know. Bowling Green, Nebraska and UMASS are his latest list of offers to impress.
