Committed to Texas A&M
As one of the most talked-about recruits in the 2013 class, Ricky Seals-Jones stands to make waves at the next level.
With an eye-opening combination of size, speed and athleticism, the 6'5", 230-pound athlete has the tools to either be a dynamic dual-threat quarterback, or a serious weapon at receiver in college. 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 and will easily be one of the top athletes to enter the collegiate level.
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.
As of now, though Seals-Jones could stand to improve as far as route running is concerned. He doesn't play low enough to the ground at times on his cuts, which especially hinders his 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 overly rely on his quickness and speed instead of taking a challenge on the line.
Overall, Seals-Jones is still learning the game of football and its subtleties, but his explosiveness—especially for a player his size—is hard to pass up. Given the right coaching, he could flourish.
