After breaking on to the scene in 2015, you could almost guarantee Colleyville Heritage wide receiver Ke’Von Ahmad was destined for the next level. In his sophomore season, he amassed over 1,200 receiving yard and a staggering 17 touchdown catches en route to a 6A all-state first team selection.
Fast forward to present: Ahmad finished off his junior season where his production was down, but some will argue due to his breakout season, defenses were keen on negating his presence with double coverages and more attention. Whatever the matter, the rising senior still managed to score 9 times through the air and even added a score on the ground to prove he is one of the best wideouts in the state.
That sentiment was justified by the three-star recruit garnering seven offers to date, most notably from Kansas, Northwestern and Baylor. While the recruiting process is far from over for Ahmad, he has expressed interest in Texas, so if the right events fall in place, Tom Herman could potentially be looking for the Colleyville Heritage product to join his ranks in Austin.
While he has been steadily improving over the last couple of months, what’s most impressive about the 6-0 tall deep threat is that he has a frame that college coaches will have the potential to mold. With sure hands and the intelligence for route running, Ahmad seems to be a nice package for whomever lands him next spring. An added bonus will be his ability to run the ball, with the prospect totaling four rushing touchdowns in his career.
In a metroplex district, with the potential to face top teams through the playoffs and beyond, a key will be for Heritage to provide the chance for Ahmad to receive looks from coaches he would not usually interact with. If the young receiver is able to prove his worth in the matchups, the sky is the limit for the ensuing offers to come. Ke’Von Ahmad is one to certainly keep on the radar come this fall.
