    Good job JC of socuting out some of the smaller school guys. I saw Tysson Poots mentioned on Draftdaddy as the number one FCS returning wideout, but didn't think him white b\c of the way his name is spelled. Shame on me for not further investigating. [​IMG]

    Nice work Jimmy C...you beat me to it..was gonna post on Poots & Soy(gotta love the names)...those two WR's are big-time WR's on any level...and should get a legit sniff in the NFL! And nice finds on the sprinters too!!

    Szczur is projected as a 5th round pick by one pre-draft publication. Looking forward to seeing a healthy Kris Durham return to action!

    Colin Sandeman for Iowa has three catches so far, and his catches have come scattered throughout the game, which indicates he's been in on alot of plays, hopefully. Would be great to see him as an official starter.

    Good to see Kris Durham back in the line-up for Georgia after being injured last year. He's having a nice 1st half with 4 catches for 78 and a TD...including a 41 yard over the shoulder catch. He did drop a 25 yard catch that turned into INT from DB Lance Kelly ofUL-Lafayette.

    Scotty McKnight for the Colorado Buffaloes just broke the all-time receiving record for Colorado with a very nice catch, his 168th, for a 30-yard TD...beating the afflete by about 15 yards.

    Congrats, Scotty [​IMG].

    Of course, Coach Hawkins said a couple of weeks ago that McKnight wouldn't even be part of the 2-deep team of receivers if he were a freshman now, after their last couple of affeletic recruiting classes. Let's see if any of their future, more affeletic WRs, break Scotty's record.

    6'3" speedster Thomas Roberson has looked good for Tulsa today in limited action. He has burned his man three times (although he was mugged in the endzone and got a no-call). He's a true freshman. And in that offense, he could have a very big career.

    despite the paucity of scholarship offers to White wide receivers due to the Caste System, as of this moment exactly one-fourth of the Top 40 wideouts (based on receiving yardage) in Division One collegiate football are White athletes.

    11. Zach Bolger (Wyoming) 134 yards and 2 touchdowns on 5 catches.
    12. Conner Vernon (Duke) 129 yards on 10 catches.
    17. Greg Salas (Hawaii) 124 yards on 8 catches.
    22. Dane Sanzenbacher (Ohio State) 113 yards and 1 touchdown on just 3 catches.
    29. Ryan Swope (Texas A&M) although i thought several of his touches were runs, ESPN has him for 106 yards on 13 catches.
    32. Evan Landi (South Florida) 104 yards on 6 catches.
    33. T.J. Moe (Missouri) 101 yards and 1 touchdown on 13 catches.
    36 (t). Jeremy Ebert (Northwestern) 99 yards and 1 touchdown on 5 catches.
    36 (t). Alex Neutz (Buffalo) 99 yards and 1 touchdown on 5 catches.
    38. Brett Brackett (Penn State) 98 yards and 2 touchdowns on 8 catches.

    additionally, there are numerous White athletes (including a tailback and a couple of tight ends) who are just outside the Top 40.

    those with eyes to see and ears to hear, take a look ... and wonder why so few White men get an opportunity. [​IMG]

    Sadly out of all the players you just mentioned only Sanzenbacher and Salas are considered legit NFL prospects. Ryan Swopes is currently ranked as the 101st best receiver in the country.

    Evan Landi ... after playing wideout for the first time ever last year as a frosh, he appears poised to breakout

    [​IMG]
    Dane Sanzenbacher ... the "other" wideout for the Buckeyes is currently leading the nation in yards-per-catch

    2 White WRs led UGA in receiving yesterday...Durham (5 for 83 yards, 1 TD) & Logan Gray (2 for 26 & 1 TD).[​IMG]

    Also, a rarity for UGA [​IMG] ...(White) Fred Munzenmaier gets carries at TB (+ FB) 7 carries & 1 TD (reception). Also (FB) Chapas scored a TD (rushing). 5 White players had TDs for the Dawgs.[​IMG]

    Sadly, I must admit the White players (extra) PT was due to afrolete WRs Tavaris King & AJ Green (+ TB Ealey) not playing...due to TNB.[​IMG]

    Greatwork Jimmy Chitwood! Thanks....







    Good to see Kris Durham back in action after last year's injury. Glad they moved Logan Gray to WR; instead of wasting away as a back-up WR. Those Georgia Fullbacks are good!

    Would like to see more of Roberson from Tulsa.

    That was a great catch -- but not too surprising, Keith has a 38-inch vertical! Also had the key block on another TD. His footwork still needs work coming over from QB, but as usual MSU's other receivers can't catch the ball, so he will eventually become Kirk Cousins' prime target like Blair White was last yeasr.

    Central Michigan sophomore Cody Wilson had a phenomenal game last night in a losing effort to Temple. Cody had 7 catches for 153 yards. I could be mistaken but I don't think we have mentioned this young talent much (if at all). Here he is in action.

    White WR sighting!! I was shocked to see #4 Jared Abbrederis make a
    reception in the San Jose State game. He's a former high school
    quarterback that is now making the transition to wideout in college.
    He's a long lean receiver at 6'2 185. The RS Freshman could have a
    bright future in Madison!

    It's only the beginning of the 3rd quarter and Duke receiver Conner Vernon already has 5 for 116 and a TD. The sophomore is an absolute BEAST.Edited by: Freethinker

    He is now 8 for 181 and 2 TD. Just smoked an afflete on a long TD pass and run. He looks great.

    UGA's Kris Durham led the Dawgs (again) in receiving (3 receptions for 76 yards, w/ a long catch of 55 yards)...in their loss to (fellow afrolete filled) South Carolina.

    While we have plenty of other great white WRs, I have so much respect for Kris Durham, Georgia's time machine! He is somehow playing WR for the Dawgs in 2010 and doing well!

    Congrats to Kris Durham for cracking the century mark for the first time! Only three games in this is already his best season! Let's hope he keeps the production up and shows that he should've been utilized more for the Dawgs his whole career!

    Yessiree! Kris led the Dawgs (for the 3rd game) in receiving with 5 catches for 101 yards (including a 46 yard catch). He's got 1 more game before (overhyped) "afflete" AJ Green gets back from suspension...so I hope he has another big game against the MSU Bulldogs (& cements his starting slot).

    I started tracking last year's wide receivers because of the overabundance of great players to follow. While there are less big name players this year, that does not mean I should not keep tabs. That being said, here are our guys in the top 75 after week 3:

    Conner Vernon â€" Duke (So.) â€" 20 for 320 & 2 TDs (10th)
    Cody Wilson â€" Cent. Mich. (So.) â€" 14 for 300 & 2 TDs (13th)
    T.J. Moe â€" Missouri (So.) â€" 30 for 299 & 2 TDs (14th)
    Kyle Rudolph â€" Notre Dame (Jr.) â€" 21 for 287 & 2 TDs (16th)
    Greg Salas â€" Hawaii (Sr.) - 24 for 281 & 0 TDs (T19th)
    Kris Durham â€" Georgia (Sr.) â€" 13 for 260 & 1 TD (28th)
    Jeremy Ebert â€" Northwestern (Jr.) â€" 12 for 248 & 2 TDs (T34th)
    Josh Cooper â€" Oklahoma St. (Jr.) â€" 17 for 228 & 1 TD (43rd)
    Jeff Maehl â€" Oregon (Sr.) â€" 13 for 223 & 2 TDs (45th)
    Dane Sanzenbacher â€" Ohio St. (Sr.) â€" 11 for 208 & 1 TD (59th)
    Zach Bolger â€" Wyoming (Sr.) â€" 12 for 203 & 2 TDs (65th)
    Ryan Swope â€" Texas A&M (So.) â€" 21 for 202 & 0 TDs (66th)

    *I did not include DJ Woods, Michael Egnew (TE), Derek Moye as they appear to be mixed*

    Also, if there is anyone I have forgotten let me know.

    David Douglas of the U of A Wildcats might be a sleeper to keep an eye on. He had 78 yards receiving last week. The Cats run a spread offense so I'm not sure how much he will get the ball. Great job though and it's a good way to keep track of our favorite players.
