Some of the big plays Wideman put together came when the entire stadium knew the 6-foot-4, 185-pound prospect was getting the football and it still didn't matter. The length and bounce that makes him a great wing and dunker on the hardwood makes him a true vertical threat even when a defender is in what is considered ideal position.

Why Wideman is an All-American: The only prospect on this list perhaps more famous in another sport for his viral dunks that have impressed the likes of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, Wideman’s 2019 has established him as a premier football player as well. The long and bouncy wide receiver went from flash player to triple-teamed vertical threat as a senior and still managed to make ‘wow’ plays nearly every week. His combination of catch radius, at 6-foot-5 or so, elite leaping ability and ball tracking skill are unmatched nationally.

Even in scenarios where he is out-numbered, Wideman found ways to pull in long scores seemingly every week. Not only was he more consistent as a wide receiver this fall, but he was more complete in his game as well. He proved to be a competitive blocker, progressed as a route-runner and became a home run threat after the catch with great instincts and stride. The raw tools Wideman possesses make him among the most intriguing athletes in the country regardless of position.

Love it !

Beckwith and Wideman combined with Galloway, Hyatt and possibly Holiday. That is potentially as good if not better than any other WR class in the country, it's got it all ... speed, size, and athleticism. I personally wouldn't trade it for any other WR class in the country.
And a stud like HB throwing to them, a great coach like Tee, and WRU will be back.
