What’s The Difference Between Malik Willis and Joel Caleb?

Malik Willis is an unrated recruit from Georgia with only one Power 5 conference offer (VT). Joel Caleb was a top 100 recruit with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Ohio State, Oklahoma, etc. In that regard they come from opposite ends of the spectrum.

That being said, I want you to look at their highlight tapes and tell me if you can tell a noticeable difference between the two players at the high school level.

First, Joel Caleb…

And now, Malik Willis

Caleb looks slightly bigger, but other than that there isn’t much of a difference at all (not that I’m an expert evaluator, of course). Caleb was a 213-lb wide receiver during the spring of his first year on campus (2013). He switched to running back that summer before finally finishing his career as a 190-lb wide receiver in 2015.

I’ve ranted and raved about Caleb’s career before, but allow me to briefly do so again. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a skilled position player get to college and immediately start losing weight, especially
