Rico Flores Jr. has been the talk of the 2023 recruiting class for sometime now, with great reason. The talented 4-star wide receiver recently narrowed his commitment list to 3 universities: Notre Dame, Georgia, and Ohio State.
During Rico’s Junior year at Folsom High School, he played in all 15 games, had 81 receptions, 11 touchdowns, and 1,157 yards (14.3 yards per catch). If these dynamic numbers are any indication, Rico is poised to have an even more electric Senior campaign.
On May 14th, Rico participated in the invite only ESPN Elite 300 Underclassmen Camp that was held in Northern California. Through his highly developed receiving skills, he won the camp’s highest award as the wide receiver MVP.
This certainly won’t be the last MVP Rico Flores Jr. will win during his playing career. He also took the same WR MVP honors during the UC Report Elite Underclassmen Showcase (Under Armour Camp) that was hosted in Southern California in 2021. Rico’s hard work and training off the field has certainly been showing. When he is not practicing during his team’s activities at school, he trains with his godfather, Lem Adams, who is the owner of Game-Fit Sacramento.
Lem, who played football at Washington State, has a proven track record of developing NFL talent, most notably New England Patriots Cornerback Terrance Mitchell. It should be no surprise when Rico follows in his footsteps and bursts onto the NFL scene.
