4-star 2021 New Orleans WR names 3 SEC teams in top 5
One of the top recruits in Louisiana has 3 SEC programs in his top 5.
Edna Karr (New Orleans) wide receiver Destyn Pazon revealed a top five Sunday of Alabama, Florida, Florida State, LSU and Oklahoma via his Twitter account. Listed at 6-feet, 170 pounds, Pazon is rated the No. 6 Louisiana product, No. 22 wide receiver and No. 131 prospect overall nationally in the class of 2021 on the 247Spors Composite. He holds 21 scholarship offers at this time.
Barton Simmons, 247Sports’ Director of Scouting, recently evaluated Pazon as a potential NFL wideout:
Skinny but defined wide receiver with enough length and size to be an effective outside threat long term. Has ability to beat press coverage with quick feet and effectively stacks defensive backs. Shows some route-running versatility and feel. Extremely productive on the high school level. Effective downfield and winning in contested situations. Good not great athleticism. Not a natural hands catcher. Not active enough with his hands in his release. Doesn’t present a dominant skillset yet but very likely a productive Power Five starter who has mid to late round NFL Draft potential.
Before the coronavirus pandemic shut down on-campus recruiting visits, Pazon was able to see Florida (Feb. 1, 2020), Oklahoma (March 1) and Florida State (March 7). His highlights can be viewed below, via Hudl:
