WR Heastie dominates Ultimate 100

UNION, N.J. -A day after the class of 2010 got to strut their stuff, the class of 2009 had their own NationalUnderclassmen.com Ultimate 100. And Chesapeake (Va.) Great Bridge wide receiver Logan Heastie had a simply dominant performance.

"The level of talent at this event was so much deeper than last year," said Ultimate 100 founder Dave Schuman (www.nationalunderclassmen.com). "Logan was so impressive and so were so many other players. This was a group that has a great future."

Heastie, who stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 181 pounds, began the combine with a bang, running a 4.3-second 40-yard dash. The big receiver then impressed in the one-on-ones and was hard to contain in the 7-on-7 tournament. Heastie gets stronger and faster at each event. The Virginia wideout took home the Fastest Man award and was named the Overall MVP at the event.

The wideout position was loaded as many others at the position stood out. Grand Prairie (Tex.) South Grand Prairie wide receiver DeWayne Peace took home the Wide Receiver MVP award after a great performance in the one-on-ones and in leading his team to the 7-on-7 title. The 5-foot-11, 165-pounder has great hands and the knack for making big plays.

Other impressive wide receivers include Carneys Point (N.J.) Penns Grove stud Aaron Hayward, Woodbridge (Va.) Forest Park wideout Brandon Scott, Cherry Hill (N.J.) Camden Catholic speedster Jerry Watters, Denton (Tex.) Liberty Christian wideout Adam Smith and Arlington (Tex.) Summitt flash Laray Woodward.

But perhaps the two most polished receivers on the day were Philadelphia (Pa.) William Penn Charter's Je'Ron Stokes and Fort Washington (Md.) Friendly's Alex Blake. Stokes is a blur and is a homerun threat on each play while Blake runs excellent routes and catches everything thrown his way.
