    Who are the top receivers in KY in 2019?

    This group features a mixed bag of pass catchers - a fast rising prospect in the class of 2021, last year's state leader in yards and catches, a couple of all-purpose studs who don't necessarily fit the mold of a true wideout, and I'll throw in the nation's top TE for good measure.

    Dekel Crowdus (Jr., Frederick Douglass/offers from Ohio State, Penn State, and UK)
    2018 - 37 catches/831 yards/11 TDs
    sophomore season - Dekel Crowdus highlights - Hudl

    Jake Sloan (Sr., Pulaski County/EKU commit)
    2018 - 116 catches/1,666 yards/13 TDs
    Jake Sloan, Jr WR - Jake Sloan highlights - Hudl

    Reese Smith (Sr., Boyle County/WVU commit)
    2018 - 53 catches/1,173 yards/20 TDs
    Junior Season Highlights - Reese Smith highlights - Hudl

    Michael Mayer (Sr., Covington Catholic/Notre Dame commit)
    2018 - 46 catches/1,029 yards/12 TDs
    Michael Mayer Junior Year - Michael Mayer highlights - Hudl

    Izayah Cummings (Sr., Male/UK commit)
    2018 - 41 catches/597 yards/11 TDs
    Missed five games due to injury
    Junior Season Highlights - Izayah Cummings highlights - Hudl

    Jackson Hensley (Sr., Pikeville)

    Seems like this is an especially strong year for receivers compared to some year's past.

    Michael Mayer at TE is as good as they come and Reese Smith is an absolute stud.

    The quantity of very solid receivers though is definitely more than year's past.

    Reiley Colwick from Boyle County gets my vote for most underrated receiver though. For all that Reese does (which is a ton), Colwick is especially valuable to their passing game because he is so tough in between the hashes and can turn a 5 yard pass into a 50 yard pass with his speed.

    I would watch out for sophomore WR at St. X, Mekhi Smith. Should definitely bring a different element to the Tiger passing game.

    He looks like a very promising young talent.

    I'm pretty sure that Owsley is out for the season with an ACL injury.

    WHAT! This is ABSOLUTELY Terrible News! I am so sad to hear this! Absolute difference maker for the Red Devils! He would (and still can) be a real steal for a smaller university. Has worked very hard to continue to improve for his senior year. Was one of the real reasons Owensboro beat BG in the playoffs last year.

    I hope he recovers very soon!
