Kemah Siverand scouting report: Big-play wide receiver

The Cypress Ridge product is one of the top receivers in the state for 2015

Kemah Siverand is a top-tier playmaker, and the Texan prospect is bringing in some high-profile offers from across the nation.

Siverand hails from Houston (Texas) Cypress Ridge High School, and is listed at 6'0 and 183 pounds. He is projected to play wide receiver at the next level.

Siverand is considered a consensus four-star recruit, receiving the mark from 247Sports, Rivals, Scout and ESPN. Rivals is highest on the prospect, rating him as the 20th-best receiver in the nation, but all four consider him one of the top 25 players at the position. The 247Sports Composite, which aggregates the ratings of all four major recruiting services, considers him a four-star, ranking him as the 16th-best wide receiver in the class and the 24th-best player in the state of Texas.

Siverand claims offers from Texas, Texas A&M, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Louisville, Michigan State and Maryland, among others. He can be found on Twitter @TooBeFamous.

At 6'0 and 183 pounds, Siverand doesn't have the physical measurables that stick out as a prospect, but he did test well at a recent Nike event in Houston, recording a 4.56 40, a 4.28 shuttle, and a 37.1-inch vertical leap that is his most impressive attribute.

Siverand's ability to elevate helps him play bigger than his size, while he almost plays faster than his 40 time would suggest, as he consistently gives defensive backs trouble with his vertical routes. In addition, he can stem and weave defenders on post routes to help create a little bit of extra separation.

Since he can get open deep, defensive backs have to give him a greater cushion than they would otherwise, allowing Siverand to work underneath effectively on out routes and dig routes. Sinking his hips and exploding out of his breaks makes it even easier for the Cypress Ridge product to get that needed separation.

After the catch, Siverand can be difficult to bring down because he drives his legs well on contact and has some impressive change of direction that allows him to make defenders miss.

Though he's built like a slot receiver, his leaping ability should allow him to play outside in college, where he can threaten defenses with vertical routes and find use in the wide receiver screen game.
