First 10: Best hands

Quickness is Bruce's defining trait, but the fact that he catches anything thrown in his vicinity helps him overcome his limited height. At just 5-foot-8, Bruce is one of the most lethal receiving threats in America because he has no problem hauling in passes that seem to be offline or awkward. Bruce, a Miami commit, makes a lot of plays in the flat but is also a certified deep threat in part because of his soft hands. -- Rob Cassidy, Southeast analyst
Trevon Diggs
Gaithersburg (Md.) The Avalon School
Diggs is the top player on his team and is really the engine that makes the offense go. For Avalon to have success, he needs to put up big numbers and that's just what he's been doing. In many of his games this season, Diggs has double-digit catches, but what's more impressive is where these catches are being made. He has success on short, intermediate, deep, and crossing patterns. Maryland leads for Diggs. -- Adam Friedman, Mid-Atlantic analyst
Tyler Vaughns
La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat
The knock on Vaughns is that he doesn't have superior speed to burn by every cornerback in the country, but the top-rated receiver in California has proven he can catch every ball thrown his way. Vaughns has long arms, so he can go up and catch passes, if it's thrown low, he can go down and get it. There has rarely been a time where I've seen the USC commit drop anything, even poorly thrown balls. -- Gorney
Freddie Swain
Citra (Fla.) North Marion
Swain's sure hands allow him to play even bigger than his 6-foot-1 frame. The fact that he has an impressive vertical also helps. Swain has a knack for the highlight reel catch and can make overthrown passes seem to be on target. You rarely see the Florida commit bobble a pass. His hands seem to be especially sure in the end zone. -- Cassidy
Quartney Davis
Houston (Texas) Langham Creek
Davis is noted for his combination of size and explosion, but he also brings a pair of reliable hands to the table. He attacks the ball and he gets his hands out in front in order to bring the ball in for the catch. He is a deep threat, he makes quick adjustments and he is able to pull away from a defense in a hurry, but his hands bring the full package together and make him a real threat. He has recorded just shy of 1,000 yards and 20 touchdowns on 50 receptions as a senior in 2015. Davis is committed to Texas A&M. -- Jason Howell, Mid-South analyst
Josh Imatorbhebhe
Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett
The USC commitment isn't having the best senior season, but that has more to do with turnover on the roster than his individual skills. Imatorbhebhe is as sure-handed as they come and has terrific size (6-foot-2, 202 pounds) and a big catch radius. He's been dubbed as a possession receiver and anytime the ball comes his way he makes sure to haul it in. -- Woody Wommack, Southeast analyst
Devaughn Cooper
Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne
One of the biggest surprises this season has been Cooper, an Arizona commit, who is a fantastic deep threat and he can take short passes and make something happen in the open field. What makes him stand out so much is that he has tremendous hands and has a knack for hauling in difficult passes. If he's sprinting full speed to catch up to a pass or diving for the ball, Cooper routinely brings it in. -- Gorney
Cornell Powell
Greenville (N.C.) Rose
Powell has about 45 catches for close to 1,200 yards this season. That's extremely impressive for a high schooler, especially since the defense knows the quarterback is going to throw him the ball. Powell's hands have improved since last season. Look for him to make key catches and big plays at Clemson next season. -- Friedman
Trishton Jackson
West Bloomfield, Mich.
Jackson finished his junior season with little fanfare, but built recruiting momentum at camps throughout the off-season before making his commitment to Michigan State in June. The 6-2, 181-pound wideout showed good speed and excellent body control, but what really set him apart is the ability to reel in passes throw anywhere in his general vicinity. Jackson has a strong pair of hands and attacks the football out, away from his body, and he also has the knack for making highlight-reel catches on passes most receivers would not even pursue. Interestingly, Jackson lined up primarily at quarterback for his West Bloomfield team this season. -- Josh Helmholdt, Midwest analyst
