Devin Clarke leads available WRs

With national signing day (Feb. 2) around the corner, here is a look at the top uncommitted wide receivers.


Devin Clarke (Sebring, Fla.)

Player rank: NR | Position rank: 33 | Grade: 79 | Stars: 3
Height: 5-10 | Weight: 160 pounds | Evaluation
South Florida

Why they want him: Clarke is a slick, slippery wide receiver that is a nice combination of speed and quickness and he is very difficult to cover one-on-one in the open field. He is slightly undersized with a wiry, lean build and he may be a best fit as a slot receiver and return specialist. He has terrific foot quickness and change-of-direction skills. He can stick his foot in the ground and cut laterally with little-to-no wasted motion, which should make him a dangerous route-runner in time.

Recruiting update: It seems like Skip Holtz and the USF Bulls will be tough to beat on this one. He may first have to go the junior college route.
