Class of 2016 Wide Receiver Big Board

Written By: Nick Holmes (@HoosierHolmes)

In our third Prospects Big Board we will take a look at wide receivers. The Hoosiers added five pass catchers in this last class and enter next season with zero scholarship seniors at the position, so it remains to be seen how many they might look to add in this upcoming cycle. Much like running back, the Hoosiers can leverage the fact that the team has been able to get players at the position in the NFL, like Denver's Cody Latimer. So which potential route-runners could decide that Bloomington is the best place for them to continue their playing careers?

Below are the names of some talented athletes that have landed an offer from the Hoosiers or could be on the verge of picking one up. Much like running back, many of these athletes are versatile enough to play multiple positions. For instance, Armani Posey could potentially be moved to outside linebacker. Fort Wayne's Ben Skowronek could possibly grow into a tight-end once he makes it to college. Stars and rankings are based on 247 Sports Composite Rankings.

NoteThis list will change over the next few months and even weeks as new names emerge during summer camps.
