Tee Higgins appears to be the forgotten man in the WR class of 2020. Whether it’s Jerry Jeudy or Henry Ruggs from the film community or the analytics darling, Jalen Reagor, Higgins is among the least discussed prospects of the year. But he still appears to be an early-round draft selection with a strong pedigree.

Maybe it will be the forgotten man that becomes the star player from this year’s rookie draft.

High School Pedigree

Coming out of high school, Higgins was one of the most sought after players in the class of 2017 with offers from 22 schools. He was rated as the second-best WR nationally and the 19th best player overall, according the 247Sports Composite.

Those rankings came after a decorated high school career. He began by starting on Oak Ridge High School’s varsity team as a freshman, a feat that hadn’t been accomplished since 2002. He followed it up with over 350 yards and six scores as a sophomore en route to an undefeated season. As a junior, he had 841 yards and 16 TDs. And he wrapped up his career with 1,044 yards and 18 TDs, not including three punt return scores and one interception TD, as a senior. He was named Mr. Football at the AAAAA level in Tennessee in both his junior and senior seasons. All of this production led to Higgins becoming a USA Today second-team All-American and participating in the Under Armour All-American Game.

Since being a five-star prospect has correlated some with future fantasy success, Higgins’ profile receives a slight boost with his pedigree.

College Production

Higgins’ career will likely have mixed reviews depending on who you ask.
