The 20 most underrated high school wide receivers in the East

These sticky-handed stars put up big stats last season but thus far don’t have a bunch of stars next to their names in the recruiting world

High school football has been up and running throughout most of the East for several weeks, with Connecticut and Massachusetts being the last two U.S. states to start their seasons this week.

SBLive Sports will spend the week leading up to Friday's games featuring high school football players from the Eastern United States who might not be big names in the recruiting world — but could be soon if they keep showing out on the football field.

As the hype around top prospects grows, high school football players who don't get flooded with D1 offers keep grinding away.

We started by featuring some standout quarterbacks, and now here are 20 wide receivers from the East who are poised to boost their recruiting stock this season.
