Against the best of defenses, it takes a reliable receiver to make noise in the nation’s top conference.

In a loaded SEC with the wideouts below, Zuber looks to put up monstrous numbers as a Bulldog.

No. 1 Jerry Jeudy (Alabama)

Jeudy, the 2018 Biletnikoff Award winner took the college football world by storm and is only getting better. A human joystick, Jeudy can break ankles. He excels in the slot and as a deep threat. In 15 games, Jeudy posted 68 receptions for 1,315 yards and 14 touchdowns.

No. 2 Bryan Edwards (South Carolina)

Edwards, the Gamecocks’ senior leader is a physical freak who can sky. He caught 55 balls and for 846 yards and seven touchdowns. Edwards is a one on one matchup nightmare, as he should further make his presence felt this fall.

No. 3 Justin Jefferson (LSU)

A pure athlete and lethal after the catch, Jefferson jumped off the screen in 2018. As he recorded 54 receptions for 875 yards, expect Jefferson to eclipse the one thousand yard receiving mark. Look for Jefferson to lead the Tigers in receptions.

No. 4 Isaiah Zuber (Mississippi State)

While Zuber’s Kansas State resume speaks for itself, the SEC is an entirely different beast than the Big 12. Zuber is a speedster who can be utilized in a multitude of schemes. Throughout his Wildcat career, Zuber accumulated 1,321 yards and 11 touchdowns on 127 receptions. Expect him to be consistent and put up similar numbers in Starkville. Zuber should be a focal points of the Bulldog’s offense.

No. 5 Henry Ruggs III (Alabama)

Ruggs broke out as a sophomore. His 46 receptions, 741 yards and 11 touchdowns spoke volumes, as the Crimson Tide found a formidable weapon to compliment Jeudy. That said, Ruggs’ numbers may not eclipse Jeudy’s, but will be respectable.

Though Zuber is ranked fourth, he is sure to have himself a season while donning the maroon and white.

Hail State!
