One of the state's top receiver prospects next fall will be Corona (Calif.) Centennial's Ricky Marvray. Marvray first caught our eye at a summer 7 on 7 passing tournament a year ago and then went out and had a very good year on the field.
Marvray, 6-1, 185 pounds is a very good looking player with a lot of skills that translate well to college. He has a college body right now, runs very well, has good hands and can also run well after the catch.
As a junior, the athlete caught 33 balls for 753 yards and nine touchdowns including two in a Div I state championship game loss to Concord (Calif.) De La Salle to earn all-league honors. Although no one has offered Marvray yet, we expect him to be recruited at the high Div I level.
"I have a lot of schools writing to me right now," Marvray said. "I'm hearing from Notre Dame, Oregon, Northwestern, Stanford, Colorado, Boise State and Nebraska. UCLA was my favorite school growing up but I haven't heard from them yet.
"The schools I like a lot are Notre Dame, Oregon, Northwestern, Stanford and Colorado. I'm going to camp with UCLA and USC and will also attend the NIKE camp in April. I'm looking for a school with a strong combination of academics and athletics and plan on going through the recruiting process before making a decision."
Academically, Marvray is very solid carrying a 3.8 GPA and he plans to major in Physical Therapy in college.
