Jake Oliver continues to make the clutch catch in a crowd!
Super Scout Max Emfinger
Jake Oliver (6-4, 210, 4.51) of Dallas Jesuit, Texas is a sensational wide receiver who made 108 catches as a junior for an incredible 1,637-yards and 23 touchdowns. Oliver also has 38 career touchdown catches.
Oliver is one of the surprise wide receivers of the summer as he had outstanding performances at the NIKE Football Training Camp, The Gridiron Kings 7on7 National Championship, and The Opening.
Oliver is a great looking muscular physical specimen who has a great work ethic and has great concentration on the field with excellent hands. Oliver is also very impressive on and off of the field and he’s a great leader on and off the football field.
On his highlight film, Oliver is a great wide receiver who makes a lot of big plays. The thing that really separates him from most other wide receivers is his uncanny ability to make the catch when there are defenders on his back.
Although he is pretty fast, Oliver is not a speed burner, so there is always going to be some defenders close to him, but eventhough he has at least two defenders on his back, Oliver is still able to make the huge catch in the clutch. Most receivers can not continue to come-up with this clutch catch, but Oliver is always able to make that catch.
Oliver made some unbelievable catches at various Camps and Combines in the Spring and Summer and was the MVP receiver in a couple of them. On his highlight film, Oliver is one of the most impressive wide receivers that I have seen this year.
On his highlight film, I counted six times that Oliver was able to make a clutch catch with at least two defenders on his back and three of the catches were for touchdowns. Oliver also did this twice at the The Gridiron Kings 7on7 and twice again at The Opening.
Although Oliver did not make it to the Gridiron Kings Championship Game, he was outstanding in the three Pool Play games on Saturday and the Semi-Finals Game on Sunday. Oliver had six catches in Game #1; four catches in Game #2; and three catches in Game #3 on Saturday and then caught three more passes on Sunday. In all, Oliver caught three touchdown passes and scored one extra point conversion. Oliver is a great looking muscular physical specimen who has a great work ethic and has great concentration on the field with excellent hands. Oliver is also very impressive on and off of the field and he’s a great leader.
Oliver can play wide receiver at the next level, but he also could be a real “Missmatch” to defensive backs if he were to move to a flex tight end and I have rated him as a tight end.
Oliver has given the Texas Longhorns an early verbal committment and he could team with Tyrone Swoopes to form a great Longhorn passing battery in the next few years.
Oliver has been Selected to participate in the US Army All-American Bowl Game.
My Gridiron Kings Super Elite Top 25 All-Americans will be released on Friday August 31, so please check back. I’ve already done stories on eight of them, including TE O.J. Howard, WR Tony Stevens, WR LaQuon Treadwell, WR Jake Oliver, and AP’s Taquan “Smoke” Mizzell, Alvin Kamara, LeVonte Whitfield, and Ryan Green.
