Mekhi Mews has been named as our first ever Offensive Player of the Year for The Recruit Database! Congrats, Mekhi!
The sensational senior played mostly wideout and slot for the Black Knights, as well as some time at tailback, kick return, punt return and he also saw some time on defense at defensive back.
What can’t this guy do?!
On the offensive side of the ball, Mews was able to account for 1,534 total yards on the season, which was nearly three times the amount of the closest player to him!
Mews was the 6-A state leader in terms of receiving yards, and he would finish the year 1,070 receiving yards and he accounted for 11 touchdowns on the year!
Those impressive stats and his dominating season allowed for Mews to become the Region 8-6A Player of the Year! Mews was also named as a First Team Wideout on the season.
Talk about a game-changer!
Standing at 5’9, 170 pounds, Mews has great size for a slot wideout at the next level, or even an outside threat like Tyreek Hill.
While Mews does not have Hill’s speed, and not many do, he can still turn on the jets, as Mews runs a 4.45 in the forty-yard-dash.
Mews is also able to squat an impressive 475 pounds, which is nearly three times his weight! The senior can push 300 pounds on the bench as well, showing that the weight-room is taken seriously as well.
While his stats and awards are great, and he can do wonderful things in the weight-room, Mews knows that the classroom is what matters the most, and he shows that off by holding a 3.7 GPA, which is more than enough to play college ball.
With that GPA, Mews was able to land on the Gwinnett Sports Offensive Honor Roll each week during the regular season.
This certainly shows that Mews cares about his academics and he knows the importance of getting a quality education!
Mews received an official invitation to the Florida v Georgia All-Star Game on January 14-17, 2021.
Mews wants coaches to know that he has some intangibles that they would be getting, if he chooses their school to play football.
“I feel like I have great speed,” Mews said.” I have explosiveness at all times and that creates separation and allows for me to get open. I am also exceptional at making defenders miss in the open field, creating extra opportunities for myself and my team.”
Mews currently holds several offers, including Savannah State and Morehouse, as well as a handful of others. Some schools are even considering the senior as a return man, as he is very dynamic from the positions as well!
For anyone that decides to turn on the tape, they will see he is worth offering and it will be interesting to see where he ends up!
