Taking a closer look at the seven Midlands wide receivers who earned the distinction of being named to the Scout300 on Monday...

No. 26 Davion Hall - WR - Texarkana (Texas) Liberty-Eylau - Baylor
A very talented two-way athlete, who coordinators will fight for. He could play safety or wide receiver in college and be a difference maker on either side. On offense, he runs with purpose and his size, speed, agility combo is rare. He is also a vertical threat and makes great plays on deep balls thrown in his direction. On defense, he brings the same attributes to the table, plus he is not afraid to hit and shows good coverage skills.

No. 41 Kd Cannon - WR - Mount Pleasant (Texas) HS - Baylor
Cannon is a highlight reel waiting to happen. A wide receiver, who has that special natural ability and the instincts to make big plays down the field. He has big, strong hands and great hand-eye coordination, which helps him go up and take balls out of the air over defenders. A wiry-framed kid who will also make tacklers look foolish in the open field. He will only become better as he progresses and matures. He is a high level BCS prospect.

No. 138 Armanti Foreman - WR - Texas City (Texas) HS - Texas
Foreman is extremely quick off the line and super quick in and out of his breaks, which allows him to create separation. Has great acceleration and can get to his top speed in a hurry. He is very dangerous with the ball in his hands, a threat in the open field. He shows nifty stop and go moves which makes him tough to tackle. That combination makes him a complete package, a receiver who can attack defenses on short, intermediate and deep routes.

No. 149 Lorenzo Joe - WR - Abilene (Texas) Cooper - Texas
Split time at quarterback and wide receiver as a sophomore and under center as a junior, but will be playing receiver in college. He is a silky smooth route runner with a rangy frame that allows him to climb the ladder to go up and get the football over the top of DBs. He is a deep ball threat who can manipulate his body to make the tough catches. With the game on the line he is the type of receiver who you can depend on to make a big play.

No. 178 Tony Upchurch - WR - Pearland (Texas) Glenda Dawson - LSU
Big-bodied prospect who has a lot of pop about him. he moves really well for a bigger, thicker style receiver, but has still has the long arms for pulling in balls. Makes natural adjustments to the ball in the air and just seems to reach up and pluck passes out of the sky. He has good timing. He is strong running the ball and is even used as a running back at times. A great athlete, All-Region in hoops. Could develop into a high level 'go to' WR.

No. 187 Keenen Brown - WR - Houston (Texas) Taylor - Oklahoma State
Brown is a big, strong receiver. He is pretty polished. He possesses outstanding ball skills, and is a solid blocker. He runs crisp and precise routes and he separates well. Shows great concentration and strong hands, which helps him make the tough catch. He is tough to bring down once he catches the ball. A gifted receiver who will get better as he is pushed. Can catch the ball in traffic as well as pull away from defenders in the open field.

No. 219 Jamal Jeffery - WR - Lufkin (Texas) Lufkin - Texas A&M
Jeffery is an electric play maker. He will really make you pay in the open field, sometimes leaving defenders grasping for air as he burning up the turf. His game is likely destined to be in the slot in college, where he can uses his speed and natural running and play making abilities to set up mismatches. He has good hands and leaping skills as well, making him a well-rounded receiver, who just always seems to be open.
