With only limited film to evaluate newest Longhorn commit Ricky Seals-Jones at wide receiver, this piece from Next Level Athlete taken in January and just posted provides some insight into what the do-everything prospect in high school can bring to the table at Texas when he arrives.

In the workout portion of the event, you can see the exceptional feet and agility RSJ has that makes him such a dangerous threat with the ball in his hands as a quarterback. Fluid and fast for someone 6-5 and 220 pounds.

All that fluidity and change of direction ability translated well to running routes versus air and working against defensive backs, where it appeared that RSJ dominated, using his hands to win the physical battles coming off the line of scrimmage or creating that extra bit of separation. And though there are some concerns about his hands and how well he can consistently attack the football, in these clips he Seals-Jones shows that he can go attack the football in the air away from his body and outside of his frame.

All in all, there's plenty to be excited about with the Sealy star just based on his high school film, but this video helps fill in some of the gaps to provide a look at what he can do at wide receiver right now. Questions? Answered. Concerns? Marginalized.

Yeah, buddy.
