Brandon Polk is the top 2015 wide receiver in the East Region and No. 10 prospect overall.

“It feels really good to be ranked that high, especially with all the great players across the nation,” said Polk.

The Briar Woods star is quick to credit others when it comes his development as a player.

“I think what helped me was watching the players at my school before me,” he said. “Also, looking at colleges and seeing what their wide receivers are doing. I just try to do what those people do, but in my own way.”

Although Polk is happy about the recognition, he is not satisfied.

“It feels like my hard work is paying off. But it also makes me want to work even harder and see how good I can get.”

Last season, Polk had 30 catches for 426 yards and six touchdowns.

Scouting Report: Polk is the prototypical slot receiver. He can beat you as a receiver, runner and return man. Regardless, he is a threat to go the distance every time he touches the ball. Last spring, the 5-10, 165-pound Polk was the state champion in the 100 (10.65 seconds) and 200 meters (21.74).

On top of his great speed, Polk is a very good route-runner and has soft hands. The Briar Woods standout is also very shifty and has the unique ability to make a cut without losing any speed.

Overall, Polk will need to continue to add weight and get stronger, but he is one the most explosive players in the 2015 class. Over the next couple of months, look for his recruitment gain momentum.
