Rueben Randle came out of Bastrop High School in north Louisiana as the nation's top wide receiver in the Class of 2009. He went on to star at LSU and now plays for the New York Giants.

In the same class, his prep teammate DeAngelo Benton was a late qualifier on his way to Auburn, Kenny Bell was on his way to Alabama from Rayville, and Travante Stallworth, coming out of Leesville, also was headed for Auburn.

That was the last year Louisiana had a wide receiver class that even comes close to rivaling what the state is producing for the 2014 class at the position.

Louisiana has four wide receivers on the ESPN Watch List and the group likely will be the best foursome of receivers to come out of the state in the same year since ESPN started rating recruits in 2006.

In three of the six years, Louisiana did not have a highly-rated receiver prospect. This year, the state might have more elite receivers than home-state LSU has room for.
