Matchup No. 1: Fuller vs. Seals-Jones

MORE: Five-Star Challenge | Underclassmen Challenge

Rivals.com is counting down the top 10 matchups we can't wait to watch at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge over the final 10 days heading into the event in Atlanta.

One day away: Matchup No. 1

CB Kendall Fuller, Olney (Md.) Good Counsel
vs. WR Ricky Seals-Jones, Sealy (Texas)

Why Fuller has an edge: Fuller is ranked as the No. 3 overall prospect in the country for good reason. The five-star cornerback is one of the most polished players at his position in some time. He had a chance in practice to match up with class of 2012 five-star wide receiver Stefon Diggs on a daily basis, so he has the experience. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound defender has also looked very strong at camps this offseason, showing he is able to match up well with any wide receiver.


Why Seals-Jones has an edge: Seals-Jones is a huge wide receiver prospect at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds. He is built like a tight end but, when he runs, he shows that he is fully capable of lining up wide and going deep. The nation's No. 1 wide receiver prospect, he presents problems for opposing defensive backs with his combination of size and athleticism. He even plays safety for his high school team. He will be tough to stop if the quarterback simply gets him the ball at a high point.


Overall edge: Even though Fuller is a five-star prospect and Seals-Jones falls just outside that range, the edge here goes to Seals-Jones. Fuller is a very good cover corner but he simply does not have the height to consistently battle and win against Seals-Jones. The offense usually has an inherent advantage in events like this, even more so when the wide receiver is 6-foot-5.
