Trech Kekahuna, sr., Bishop Gorman (Nevada)

Playing on a team with USC commit Zachariah Branch, the top-ranked receiver in the nation, Kekahuna has been the top target for the Gaels this season. The 5-foot-10 Wisconsin commit has 32 catches, 536 yards and nine touchdowns in seven games for the No. 5 team in the nation.

Perry Thompson, jr., Foley (Alabama)

Nearly 20 years after Julio Jones graduated from Foley and went on to star for the Alabama Crimson Tide, the school will be sending another elite pass catcher to Tuscaloosa. In six games, the junior has tallied 53 catches for 594 yards and eight touchdowns.

Brandon Inniss, sr., American Heritage (Florida)

A five-star recruit who can make plays all over the field, Inniss has 23 receptions for 490 yards and 7 touchdowns in six games, and he's returned a kick for a score. The Ohio State commit has done it against some of the country's toughest competition.

Tae Johnson, jr., Fort Wayne North Side (Indiana)

Johnson's production dipped as a sophomore following a breakout freshman season, but he's back to form in 2022. Through six games, the 6-foot-3 posted 46 receptions for 652 yards and 10 touchdowns, which are all career highs.

Ayden Williams, sr., Ridgeland (Mississippi)

The 6-foot-2 Williams forms a dynamic duo with sophomore quarterback Garrison Davis. The Ole Miss commit has registered 45 catches for 890 yards and 11 touchdowns through six games.

DeAndre Moore Jr., sr., St. John Bosco (California)

The 5-foot-11 Louisville commit is a scoring machine. Moore has 403 yards, and seven of his 17 catches have gone for touchdowns. He has one carry this year, and it too went for a 14-yard touchdown.

Micah Hudson, jr., Lake Belton (Texas)

Hudson has found the end zone 11 times (nine receiving, one rushing and one punt return) in six games. The No. 1-ranked junior in Texas has caught 29 passes for 575 yards, an average of 96 yards per game.

Tyseer Denmark, jr., Roman Catholic (Pennsylvania)

A top 100 player in the junior class, Denmark holds offers from Penn State, Ohio State, Georgia and more. In six games this year, he has totaled 35 receptions 665 yards and seven touchdowns.

Mazeo Bennett, jr., Greenville (South Carolina)

Twenty-three catches for 358 yards might not set records, but Bennett knows how to find the end zone. The four-star junior has eight touchdowns (seven receptions, one punt return) in six games.

Ryan Williams, soph., Saraland (Alabama)

Williams is only a sophomore but he’s already a five-star recruit who just committed to the top-ranked college football team in the country. He’s put up 38 receptions for 712 yards and 13 touchdowns in seven games this year.

Rico Flores, sr., Folsom (California)

Before Flores heads from the West Coast to the Midwest, the 6-foot-1 Notre Dame commit is putting up big numbers in his senior year. His stats through six games: 35 receptions 633 yards and five touchdowns.

Jaden Gibson, sr., Rabun County (Georgia)

Gibson racked up 1,878 yards and 19 touchdowns a year ago with Gunner Stockton, the state’s all-time leading passer. While Stockton is now with the Georgia Bulldogs, Gibson is still putting up big numbers. Through six games this season, he has 52 catches for 958 yards and 15 scores.

Crew Erickson, sr., Wasatch (Utah)

Erickson has been one of the most productive receivers in nation this year. The senior has posted 1,248 yards and 13 touchdowns, with at least one touchdown in all eight games.

Omarion Miller, sr., North Caddo (Louisiana)

Miller should surpass 3,000 career receiving yards in his next outing. The Nebraska commit has 24 catches for 673 yards (28 yards per catch) and eight touchdowns in five games this season.

Cam Williams, jr., Glenbard South (Illinois)

It’s usually a big gain whenever the ball goes to Williams, who averages 20.5 yards per catch and 116 yards per game. In six games, the Notre Dame commit has reeled in 34 passes for 696 yards and nine touchdowns.

Jaden Greathouse, sr., Westlake (Texas)

The Notre Dame commit doesn't have the gaudiest numbers, but he's a big play machine. The 6-foot-3 receiver has 368 receiving yards and four touchdowns through five games, and he's returned two punts for scores for the No. 11 team in the country.

Ty Perkins, sr., Ironton (Ohio)

Perkins averages less than four catches per game, but the 6-foot-3 Cincinnati commit has still managed to put up 453 yards and six touchdowns in as many games.

Grant Karnes, soph., Greenwood (Arkansas)

The leading receiver for the No. 4 team in Arkansas, Karnes is in the midst of a breakout 2022 season. He’s caught 52 passes for 766 yards and scored 12 touchdowns (11 receiving and one kick return) in six games.

Malachi Durant, jr., Puyallup (Washington)

A 6-foot-2 junior with offers from Oregon, Washington and more, Durant has hauled in 37 catches for 563 yards and seven touchdowns in six games.

Xavier Jordan, jr., Cathedral (California)

2022 has been a breakout year for Jordan, who holds offers from Washington State, UNLV and Arizona prior the season. The 6-foot-tall junior has eclipsed 1,000 yards (1,089) with 46 catches and 15 touchdowns in seven games.
