Jared Dangerfield, WR, Western Kentucky
It was just two short years ago that Hilltoppers moved to Conference USA. When Jared Dangerfield joined the team in 2014 after spending his first two college seasons at Fort Scott Community College in Kansas, he went on to set a school record in 2015 that he personally set the year before.
Dangerfield hauled in 82 receptions for 844 yards, while adding eight touchdowns for the Hilltoppers offense. He put together an impressive East-West Shrine Game, leading all receivers with six catches for 104 yards.
Dangerfield is literally the blip on the radar the kept showing up, and he made the most of it.
"“You know I had to make an impression,” Dangerfield said. “Coming from Western Kentucky and Conference USA, we don’t get all the hype these other big schools get around the country. So I had to come make a name for myself and the school and just show that I’m capable of playing with this other talent and I’m capable of playing at the next level.”"
Having a combination of size (6-foot-1, 211 pounds), physicality as a run blocker, and the ability to get separation from press man coverage are just some of the traits that make this ‘small school’ prospect one to keep an eye on.
