Nevada Preps pass catchers countdown — No. 5

Updated July 16, 2018 - 12:06 pm

Foothill’s Braeden Wilson comes in at No. 5 on our list of Southern Nevada’s top five pass catchers.

To create the list, we spoke with coaches from the Mountain and Desert Regions. A couple of the base questions were: “Who is the top high school pass catcher today?” and “Who would you pick to start a team?”

Then we grabbed the statistics from last season, looked at the player’s collective rankings on recruiting websites and used our own judgment to fill holes.

Stay tuned for the rest of our pass catchers and defensive player lists that will be unveiled each week until the end of July.
