OMAHA SHOWCASE: A closer look at ’23 Class WRs that shined- We take a look at some of the young and major talented play makers in the up and coming class of ’23 and many guys that we think should be getting next level college looks as juniors this upcoming season.
SIX STAR FOOTBALL OMAHA SHOWCASE: EVENT RESULTS
193 — Coleson Cummings, 5-9, 128, WR, 2023, Bellevue East @Coleson0505
Have to love the lean and fast play making WR, has a big upside, a great fast and lean build that could prove big in the coming seasons for Bellevue West, Cummings has all the makings of becoming a name to know in Nebraska, a player that has speed and a great body, Cummings is a player that we like a lot and a player that could be in for a very big junior season ahead.
765 — Calvin Easterling, 5-10, 160, WR, 2023, Millard South @calvin_e
One of the big time wide receiver prospects from the Omaha area, Easterling has the speed and hands to be a big time target and is a player that we think could be among the emerging superstars for ‘23 class downfield targets in the state, no doubt has the speed and skills to be a name you could hear a lot from in the next two seasons.
411 — Eli Ford, 5-11, 160, WR, 2023, Grand Island Senior @efordie10
With a loaded team of major talent at Grand Island, Ford for sure represnts a continued future that should be a good one, two more years left for the sure handed pass catching deep threat at Grand Island, Ford is one of those guys that could be the top play maker on the team very soon, has the athletic skills to make some of those wow type catches and is a WR that can make a QBs life that much easier with his skills.
270 — AJ Heffelfinger, 6-1, 160, WR, 2023, Waverly @aj_heffelfinger
Heffelfinger is a dandy for sure at Waverly, no doubt an offensive unit with some major firepower and AJ will be a player coming back that knows the system very well and a guy we think could have one huge junior campaign and really jump onto several big time college program radars, has big time potential and is a guy that can be a huge downfield threat.
162 — Pierce Johnson, 5-11, 175, WR, 2023, Creighton Prep @Pierce_Johnson3
So many amazing weapons for this deeply talented Creighton Prep team, and among the best of the best is ‘23 play making WR Pierce Johnson, a 5-11, 175 athlete that can make some huge plays happen with his footwork and speed. Johnson is a very tough WR also, a very strong pound for pound WR that can make the big plays both with speed and power after the catch, making him one of the most impressive and hard to take down WR prospects in the Nebraska class of ‘23, no doubt this high powered Prep offensive should be able to look toward Johnson for a ton of big downfield plays in 2021. Watch out for this Omaha hot play maker in 2021.
604 — Carson Parde, 6-3, 235, WR/TE, 2023 Lincoln North Star @carsonparde
One of the most impressive size and power prospects we having at the Omaha Showcase is 6-3 and 235 pound monster of a TE prospect Carson Parde of Lincoln North Star, no doubt a big man with great size and potential not to mention a tremendous work ethic to be the best player he can be.
555 — Brandt Pickrell, 6-2, 230, TE, 2023, Millard West @brandt_pickrell
Have to love a big target, a powerful rumbler and runner after the catch, Pickrell has big time target and standout written all over his game for Millard West and we think with a big junior season in 2021 should be a major college radar maker with his big power frame. Has some huge power in his lower legs and can really make big time plays and blocks. Expect to hear this star in the makings name a lot in 2021 with more experience, Pickrell is a big timer in the making.
132 — Owen Snow, 5-10, 170, WR, 2023, Ogallala @_owen_snow_
Speed is always a defensive killer in football and Ogallala’s Owen Snow, a class of 2023 pure flyer down the sidelines is a guy that can make you pay the price with his wheels, no doubt a good route runner, Owen can also be a run the reverse play maker around the corner and rack up some big time gains down the field.
528 — Chase Ziemer, 6-0, 146, WR, 2023, Bellevue East @ziemer__
A player for Bellevue East that will look to use his 6-0 frame to go up and make key grabs and be one of those go to play makers for East as a junior in 2021, no doubt a guy that knows their system well and could really emerge as a big target for them in their big upcoming 2021 season. Ziemer will look to make a big impact the next two years and use some speed to rack up some big time yards.
