Isaiah Coppage, 6-1, 194, WR, 2023, Bishop Miege (Kan.) @coppage_isaiah
One of the guys that has a very physical build among the WRs that were at the FINALS, this guy for sure is one of the prime play makers for the Bishop Miege program entering the 2022 season and should be one of the main go to targets this year at WR with a QB that has experience back, Coppage should reap the rewards of experience and with his frame and ability to get separation and use his size, all signs point to a big year for this 6-1, 190 Bishop Miege standout play maker and athlete. Coppage is a very impressive natural athlete who has played where the team needed him the most and will be looking to be an offensive weapon in 2022 that has some good hands and open field speed. Very good speed for sure, Coppage is a hot prospect to have on the radar.
Christopher Foster, 5-9, 160, WR, 2023, North Marion (Fla.) @Chris_foster21
A strong athlete who has experience and a solid IQ both on and off the field. An all-district selection, Foster is a hard worker in the weight room as he has added 10 pounds of muscle since the end of the 2021 season and continues to showcase his speed and creativity. Foster can create underneath and is able to avoid tacklers and create and make opponents miss. A fluid athlete who understands his game and can make things happen. He posted a 4.68 laser timed 40-yard dash at Six Star’s Boynton Beach along with a 9-3 broad jump and 34 inch vertical. Added a recent Army offer, no doubt going to be a guy that is a hot prospect with his impressive speed.
Daion Gaston, 6-0, 190, WR, 2023, Edwardsville (Ill.) @GastonDaion
A good-sized player who understands his role and how to make athletic things happen. He is a 6’1, 190-pound receiver who can also see time as a DB. A player who can use his speed to an advantage, but also has good strength as well and can handle contact and physical DBs in one-on-one situations. Has some pliability to his frame and is also good at making plays through the air as well, pulling down overthrown passes and diving out to make plays.
Sam Gonzalez, 6-2, 185, WR, 2023, Seabreeze (Fla.) @thesamgonzalez
Named the MVP among WRs at the FINALS, a multiple position athlete who has a big frame and great muscle tone. He is quick on his feet and can overwhelm opponents with his strength and overall playmaking ability. He can see time as a QB and a WR and he looks good in either position. He has straight line speed but also can plan his foot and break away from defensive backs and even turn his body and make some off balance catch us through the air. The kind of athlete who can make one-handed grabs but also climb a ladder along the sideline and come down with the ball through heavy contact. An extremely underrated athlete in the area who has a lot of potential in his game and some real upside.
Hagan Johnson, 5-9, 145, WR, 2023, Wamego (Kan.) @Haganjohnnson
A talented hard to catch speedy play maker for the high powered passing attack at Wamego, no doubt Johnson and elite QB prospect Hayden Oviatt form a great pitch and catch combo that will be tough to handle for ’22 no doubt. Johnson is a very good head up use great vision to make guys miss kind of WR prospect, very fast, very smart and big time hands also. A lean athlete that is very strong for his size, and has some very good hands, expect some big senior numbers for this impressive go to weapon for Wamego. Kansas hot prospect to know among a top hands Kansas ’23 prospect to have on the radar.
Victor Klote, 6-2, 205, WR, 2023, Raymore Peculiar (Mo.) @Vklote
Klote sure looks the part, one of those tremendous looking athletes, bigger and a lot more physical than most defensive backs he is matched up against, Klote sure does a nice job of using his size and body control in the air to be a nice go to WR for Raymore Peculiar. Klote picked up recent offers from Peru State and Lincoln University and is one of the hot ‘23 prospects out there getting college looks and offers in the Kansas City area. Klote has some very good hands, really is a WR/TE that has the size and the soft hands to be a good pick up for the next level, one of those players that can make some very tough catches and haul it in, his combo size and hands make him a guy that should be a stock risers among targets in the 2023 class.
Micah Langston, 5’10, 170, WR, 2023, Norris (Neb.) @MicahLangston_1
In looking at names to know in Nebraska football for WRs, we like Langston as one of the more impressive looking athletes we have seen at the 6Star Football Showcase this offseason and also showed at the Nebraska Showcase that he was one of the better athletes there as he tied the top overall broad jump mark of 9’4. Had the fifth best overall vertical jump also, a mark of 33.7 inches. Langston’s 40 yard dash laser time of 4.87 was also in the top 10 among all athletes at the 6Star Football Showcase in Nebraska. No doubt Langston is one of the elite looking athletes on the field to take some major notice of for the program at Norris. A big upside for a WR and a senior play maker that is both a good athlete and a good hands play making WR prospect to know in the ’23 class.
Tyler Mitchell, 6-2, 172, WR, 2023, Verdigris (Okla.) @TylerM1121
Mitchell really has all the talents to be one of the top WRs in Oklahoma’s ’23 class, a loaded offense at Verdigris High School in Oklahoma should also help Mitchell be another great weapon on a action packed core unit, Mitchell is the biggest target on the team to go to and has some good hands, a long strider in the open field, one of those guys that has sky is the limit kind of potential. Very impressive lengthy play maker with a big senior season coming soon.
Dalton Person, 5-10, 155, WR, 2023, Verdigris (Okla.) @daltonperson20
One of the guys that we like as a get the ball in the air and watch a big catch happen kind of WR, this guy can make some very tough catches, hard route runner to cover in the open field, plays smart, hard and add in the hands and you have one of the most dangerous Oklahoma WRs in the ’23 class to know this year. A very impressive play maker, some guys go out and outcompete players on the field and you see Person do this a lot, one of those players that is also very smart as well, its hard to match his abilities on the football field and he knows how to get open and make tough catches, a great set of hands is a nice weapon he holds as well and no doubt we like him being a big time senior impact maker for the Cardinals this upcoming season.
Dante Washington, 5-11, 180, WR, 2023, Webb City (Mo.) @dwash
Washington is a strong and well-balanced athlete who can see time in a number of positions for his team. He has good physicality to his game and is able to fight off defenders and play physical. He has some finesse to his game and can spin out of would be tackles and is good at maintaining control of the ball at the point of completion. He is aggressive and has good size and athleticism and is also pushing himself in the weight room as well. Last season through five recorded games he had 25 receptions for 299 yards receiving, averaging 12.0 yards per catch and had five receiving touchdowns. He also had one rushing touchdown and average 8.7 yards per carry.
