Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

As one of the most talked-about recruits in the 2013 class, Ricky Seals-Jones stands to make waves at the next level.

The 6'5", 230-pound athlete has the versatility to play as a quarterback or a wide receiver in college, and it's easy to get the feeling that no matter where he finds himself, he will make a big impact.

The Texas native is rated as a 5-star recruit by 247 Sports Composite and will easily be one of the top athletes to enter the collegiate level.

With an eye-opening combination of size, speed and athleticism, Seals-Jones has the tools to either be a dynamic dual-threat quarterback or a serious weapon as a receiver.

He's very quick off the line as a receiver, generally using fluidity and finesse to burst past defenders. At this point, he's best as a vertical threat, but he has the tools to develop into a player who can make an impact on short, intermediate and long routes. 

Speaking of route-running, that is one thing Seals-Jones could improve upon. He doesn't play low enough to the ground at times on his cuts, particularly affecting his route-running on short routes.

The Sealy High School product also needs to be more physical in general. He has the size to be an asset, even when he faces staunch press coverage, but he tends to rely on his quickness and speed instead of taking a challenge on the line. He could also stand to be more physical when blocking.

Overall, Seals-Jones is still learning the game of football and its subtleties, but his impressive explosiveness, especially for a player his size, is hard to pass up. Given the right coaching, he could flourish.
