In terms of talent at the wide receiver position, the state of Virginia boasts some of the top talent in the country. This was true before Vidal Hazelton transferred to Hargrave Military Academy. Including Hazelton, the state now boasts four of ESPN.com’s top 16 wide receivers in the country. Percy Harvin and Damon McDaniel are first and second on that list, respectively, with Vidal Hazelton at #11 and Chris Bell at #16. My order is a bit different. I have Harvin and Hazelton rated as 5-star recruits, with Bell and McDaniel at 4 stars.
Besides the addition of Hazelton, who comes in at #2 on my list overall, there isn’t much change from the Pre-Summer Top 30. This class has outstanding talent at the top, but there is depth as well. The first 3-star prospect comes in at #11 and the top 19 players have more than one Division 1A offer. Of the top 30 players, 25 have at least one Division 1A scholarship offer.
Percy Harvin retains his spot as the top prospect in the state. Not many can compete with Harvin’s speed, which is somewhere around a 4.3 to 4.4 in the 40-yard dash. His performance in last year’s state championship game was one of the best high school performances I’ve ever seen. And a performance like that is hard to get out of your mind.
With eight touchdowns combined in Landstown’s first two games – wins over Tallwood and Kellam, respectively – it looks like Harvin is up to his old tricks. He simply can’t be stopped by the opposition. At running back or wide receiver, just give the ball to Harvin and he’ll make something happen.
