Mississippi State Bulldogs transfer JaVonta Payton is expected to be a contributor. Jalin Hyatt is expected to be the breakout superstar. Ramel Keyton has been hinting at being the breakout wideout for the past two years. Cedric Tillman emerged as a star wideout in the spring and is now expected to break out. Kaemen Marley is a freshman phenom at wideout.
Amidst all these candidates, though, people are forgetting about the other two 2021 commitments at receiver, Andison Coby and Walker Merrill, and they’re also forgetting about two returning guys, Jimmy Calloway and Jimmy Holiday. Of those, Calloway is definitely the top prospect to break out, and with a wide open competition, he could certainly do it.
The product of Georgia’s Clayton County, which is just outside of Atlanta, appeared in eight games last year and caught two passes for 20 yards. He’ll have a lot more opportunities in Josh Heupel’s system, and with a deep rotation, he could see lots of ball thrown his way.
