Yes, What IF I told you the next Julio Jones is currently a Clemson Tiger? Well, open up your eyes, because Clemson freshman WR Tee Higgins has the talent to do it.
Higgins was a 5 star receiver out of high school, who stands at a daunting 6’5″. Even with the height, he has the speed and elusiveness to take a 5 yard slant to the house. Not very many WR’s can do that, Higgins will in Death Valley.
Combine speed, physical stature, hands, route running skills, and the Clemson offense – I don’t see how he isn’t the best WR in college football by the time he is a junior. Don’t forget that, on top of the great spread offense Dabo Swinney uses, Clemson has two top QB recruits coming in. Hunter Johnson will get a crack this year, and 2018 #1 overall player QB Trevor Lawrence is committed to Clemson – Lawrence is on the verge of breaking Deshaun Watson’s high school passing record.
It’s not often that I get this hyped about a receiver who has yet to play a down of college football, but my excitement is warranted. you heard it here first, Tee Higgins will take over the top WR throne in college football in two years or less. I’m 110% confident in that statement.
