Ze’Vian Capers, a four-star wide receiver out of Denmark High School (Alpharetta, Geogia), has announced his college decision.
He will be joining Auburn.
Capers tweeted out a video made in coordination with Flo Football explaining his reasoning.
“It’s just a family environment, it’s a family feel,” Capers said, and added that head coach Gus Malzahn is a “genuine guy.”
“He says he needs big-body receivers and weapons so that’s what I’m bringing to the table,” Capers said.
That’s exactly what Capers is. Listed at 6-foot-3.5 and 195 pounds, he 1,182 receiving yards and 11 receptions in his junior year for Denmark, according to MaxPreps.
Capers also said he was told he’d have a chance to play his freshman year.
Auburn could use help at the position. The two top receivers last season, Darius Slayton and Ryan Davis, declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.
The two combined for 104 catches at Auburn last season. Nobody else had more than 26 receptions.
