    2026 WRs Watch List – Florida 

    Naeem Burroughs | WR | Class of 2026 | Bolles | @ThaDr3am__

    Burroughs has developed into the top 3-5 WR in the class of 2026 and has proved why he deserves P4 recognition after producing against some of the top defenses in Northeast FL. At 6-0, 175 pounds with elite track speed, Burroughs has offers from nearly every big-time university in the country and comes in as one of the top must-watch 2026 WRs this fall season.

    Larry Miles | ATH | 2026 | Jones | @d1larry123 

    Recent offers: Miami, Michigan State, Arkansas

    Miles has shown off good speed and football IQ to be a producer at the next level. He’s now getting attention from major universities after a few notable camp performances, most recently at the University of Miami where he dominated in front of former UM greats. He has played really good football this offseason and is another dog with perimeter playmaking ability that flashes good speed and solid route running.

    Darryon Williams | ATH | 2026 | Gaither | @DarryonWilliam8

    The recent Florida State commit comes in as one of our top 2026 WRs to watch this fall. Williams is a notable riser who has been noted as a top 3 athlete in the class. Williams was ultra-productive while finding himself in the end zone 11 times a season ago. He’s set for a big-time season where he can show off his overall versatility.

    Somourian Wingo | ATH | 2026 | St. Augustine | @_somourianwingo

    Wingo has been one of my top risers since getting eyes on him early in the offseason period. Not sure how a 6-2, 175-pound athlete gets left under-the-radar playing with one of the more covered teams in North Florida. It may be a lack of presence but this kid could be the definition of “next up”. Just look at the frame, he’s a lengthy sophomore with good size to work on. The big-play ability he showed off and upside caught my attention. Has to be a WR trainer in the area that can get a hold of him.

    Jesse Harden | WR | 2026 | Spoto | @Atr_UNO

    Harden has been all over the field this off-season making plays with a long frame and crazy catch radius at around a 6-3 height. This kid is the Real Deal in the 2026 class. If he can put together a productive fall period, I wouldn’t be surprised if his name rises on national radars.

    Kenyon Alston | WR | Class of 2026 | Bishop Moore | @KenyonAlston

    The offers continue to roll in for Alston who has been on the rise for some time. He’s grown into his frame at 6-2, 185 pounds with two more seasons of growth. Alston is stamped as a P4 wide receiver prospect in the 2026 class who will be an impact this coming fall season.

    Justin Williams | WR | 2026 | Buchholz | @Jstnw13

    Williams is a big-play wide receiver standout who made a huge impact as a sophomore with over 1,000 receiving yards and 17 TDs. This kid deserves recognition for his production and potential upside to develop into a real deal recruit. He’s earned recent verbal offers from Ole Miss, Wake Forest , and Army.

    Demetrice McCray | WR | 2026 | First Academy | @DemetriceMccr13

    One of the top 2026 WR prospects in the area deserves some recognition. Another transfer of this offense who will be a go-to target at wideout. Solid frame at 6-0, 187 pounds with plenty of time to grow and work on technique. He’s picked up recent offers from North Carolina, Illinois, and Liberty.

    Jaeden McMillan | ATH | Class of 2026 | Holy Trinity Episcopal | @1wayJaeden

    McMillan is one of the better receiver prospects in the class of 2026 who has potential to play Division I ball at the next level. Has already generated some interest in his recruitment heading into his sophomore season. He’s a pure athlete that is effective in various aspects. Helped his team in multiple departments last year and is for sure someone we will have eyes on.

    Hayden Moore | ATH | 2026 | Newberry | @HaydenM_14

    Talk about being a natural D1 athlete with all the tools to work with. If this kid gets in the weight room and takes track a bit more seriously, Newberry will have another serious prospect on the roster. He showed off his versatility in a blowout spring game performance with 2 receptions ( 100 yards), 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. Moore is already a problem but is still putting it all together. A 6-3 frame, Moore is a talented wide receiver who I could possibly see playing the defensive back position at a high level.
