Jordan Veasy will be one of the many wide receivers competing for playing time in a very open wide receiver depth chart this spring. Veasy signed as an early entry junior college wide receiver and will be part of the competition at spring camp to be a starting wideout next fall.
Veasy is listed as a three-star recruit according to 247Sports, ESPN and Scout, is listed as high as the No. 10 junior college wide receiver in nation in the 2016 recruiting class according to ESPN, while he is Scout's No. 56 junior college player overall.
From his spring tape, you can see why Veasy would compel them. He's a big physical dude. At 6'2 or 6'3 at around 215 pounds, Veasy is going to be a pretty tough matchup. Veasy caught 63 balls for 1,036 yards and 11 touchdowns this season.
"Jordan is a receiver with excellent size and strength who is versatile enough to play either inside or outside," Dykes said. "He was a very productive receiver this season but he is also definitely one of those guys who has his best football in front of him. He was overlooked early but got really hot late in the recruiting process and we were able to hang on to him when he had an opportunity to go lots of different places."
