WR – Dylan Wright – 4-star in 2019, No. 70 overall, No. 12 at his position
WR – Kam Brown – 4-star in 2019, No. 203 overall, No. 29 at his position
WR – Jalen Preston – 4-star in 2018, No. 95 overall, No. 18 at his position
TE – Baylor Cupp – 4-star in 2019, No. 53 overall, No. 1 at his position

Here’s another group loaded with top-end talent. If there is one position you can say will be set for the next few years, it’s this group, and this doesn’t even take into account all the players recruited like backup tight end Jaden Wydermyer (4-star), speedy receiver Chase Lane (3-star), and the 6-foot-5 monsters Caleb Chapman (4-star) and Kenyon Jackson (3-star).

Baylor Cupp is another player with All-American potential, especially in Jimbo Fisher’s offense. He is an athletic freak of nature that was honestly underutilized in high school. He might not be as polished of a receiver as Jace Sternberger was last year but he is probably already a better run blocker.

It doesn’t get much better than Dylan Wright and Jalen Preston on the outsides. They will both be deep threats and have the look of a No. 1 receiver. Kam Brown is a candidate to replace Camron Buckley in the slot eventually.

Preston could find his way onto the field in 2019 after spending most of 2018 watching from the sidelines. The 2018 offense didn’t have much of a true deep threat besides Quartney Davis, who is coming off a couple ACL injuries.
