The Starkville Yellowjackets have a fantastic four developing in the receiving department this season.
AJ Brown, Darius Grayer, Raphael Leonard and Fontavious Smith have given the Jackets threats in the passing game they have not seen for a while.
"This is probably the first year since we've been here that we've had a true four-wide set to put out there," SHS offensive coordinator Preston Leathers said. "We feel we can throw to any of the four and be dynamic players. Two of them are a little smaller and two of them are a little bigger. We're able to do a lot of things with them. You can throw it up to them and you can run screens with them. We're excited to have them."
