The Opening 2014 Watch List – Wide Receivers

Nike Football Training Camp

With the Journey to The Opening 2014 set to begin February 1st in New Jersey, it’s time to take a look at the 2015 prospects who’ve popped up on the radar of the Student Sports staff and college coaches around the country.  All week long we’ll be releasing position-by-position watch lists of the top 2015 prospects for The Opening 2014.  These players, plus many others, will continue to be evaluated at Nike Football CombinesNike Football Training Camps, and most importantly, on tape, with selections beginning February 1st at the New Jersey NFSC. Next up, the wide receivers:

George Campbell (East Lake, Tarpon Springs, Fla.) - 6-3.5, 185
One of just five underclassmen selected to The Opening this summer, the sky seems to be the limit for Campbell if he keeps his head on straight and keeps working hard. Rated the No. 1 overall prospect in the Class of '15 in the Student Sports' HOT 100, Campbell won the fastest man competition at The Opening with a 4.36 40.
Devonaire Clarington (Westminster Christian, Miami, Fla.) - 6-5.5, 225
As freaky as Campbell is at nearly 6-4 with 4.3 speed, Clarington comes close in the wow factor in terms of his build and athletic ability. Dropped jaws back in March at the Miami NFTC and followed that up with 741 yards receiving and 8 TD's as a junior.
Desean Holmes (Bishop Alemany, Mission Hills, Calif.) - 5-9, 160
Holmes emerged as one of the biggest playmakers in California this fall. Caught 62 balls for 1,219 yards and 7 touchdowns, which led to CalHiSports.com Junior All-State honors.
Trent Irwin (Hart, Newhall, Calif.) - 6-2, 190
A standout from the first day he stepped foot on the Hart campus as a freshman, Irwin has already accumulated 179 catches for 3,294 yards and 38 touchdowns through his first three varsity seasons.
Tyron Johnson (Warren Easton, New Orleans, La.) - 6-0.5, 180
Johnson isn't the biggest nor the fastest wideout in the Class of '15, but there may not be a better one with the ball in his hands, whether after the catch or on kick returns. Took home numerous awards this season including Class 4A All-State and District 9-4A Offensive Player of the Year honors.
Alize' Jones (Bishop Gorman, Las Vegas, Nev.) - 6-4, 212
Jones came to the L.A. NFTC in March as a rising junior who caught nine passes as a sophomore and left a national name, picking up his first offer from UCLA days later. Now a UCLA commit, Jones had 571 yards and 10 touchdowns receiving.
Christian Kirk (Saguaro, Scottsdale, Ariz.) - 5-10, 185
Kirk joined Campbell as the only two rising junior wideouts to be selected for The Opening this summer and certainly didn't disappoint as a junior. Had over 800 yards rushing to go along with 1,164 yards receiving and 30 total touchdowns.
Jaason Lewis (Ocean Lakes, Virginia Beach, Va.) - 6-2, 232
Lewis lines up primarily at wideout for Ocean Lakes but should morph into a versatile pass-catching TE or H-back in college. Runs very well for his size with a best of 10.8 in the 100 meter dash, and displayed strong hands at the D.C. NFTC in April.
DaMarkus Lodge (Cedar Hill, Texas) - 6-2, 185
Lodge morphed from role player to the man at Cedar Hill this season. The Student Sports Junior All-American had 72 receptions for 1,255 yards and 22 touchdowns.
Da'Vante Phillips (Central, Miami, Fla.) - 6-1, 190
Central had three players in the Class of '14 make The Opening and Phillips could be next in the Class of '15. Stood out at a loaded Miami NFTC as an underclassman this spring and caught 47 passes for 872 yards and 10 TD's as a junior.
