With continued emphasis placed on passing in collegiate and professional offenses, the focus narrows on even tighter on recruiting big play wide receivers.
The class of 2013 is proof of this offensive philosophy. As it stands, two wide receivers are featured at the top of the board before the first running back makes an appearance.
One of those wideouts is Robert Foster from Monaca, PA. Not only is Foster the top receiver in the class, he's also the top offensive player overall and is the desire of Big Ten schools Ohio State and Penn State.
The next best receiver in the class without a commitment is James Quick, the Kentucky State champion in the 200-meter dash. SEC schools are definitely taking notice of Quick's speed and ball-catching ability, but he's pretty convinced of where he'd like to attend and it's not in the south.
After the 2011 season, Darrell Daniels found himself atop the list of best receivers out west. His big, strong stature will make him a big-time threat in college, wherever he ends up, but he's admitted he'd like to stay close to home. So, it's likely he'll stay in Pac-12 country for his studies.
