High school recruiting rankings:

Did you know?: During his senior year of high school, Nacua had 103 receptions for 2,336 yards and 26 touchdowns — all single-season state records — and led the country in receiving, averaging 166.9 yards per game.

Scouting report: “With his body control and focus, Nacua can win one-on-one situations on the outside or provide an underneath target as a zone-beater. Though there aren’t questions about his ball skills, he might lack the pure speed that teams covet outside the numbers and the suddenness desired in the slot.” — Dane Brugler, The Athletic.
