Miami native now zig-zagging defenders in the California desert

Hansley Fleurejus of Antelope Valley College has gone from being the No. 28 running back in the nation to becoming an under-the-radar wide receiver in the California Junior College scene.

When he has the ball, Fleurejus is a slippery one. He can make things difficult for defenders trying to stay square with him and going for the tackle. He can leave behind diving tackles and busted ankles in his wake.

He's a fluid route runner and his 4.44 40-yard dash time makes him difficult to cover one-on-one. He's also a return ace and can run circles around people.

A drawback for Fleurejus will be his size. He's listed at 5-foot-8 and not too many wide receivers at that height are in high demand. I also saw him go down right away on first contact.

Still, though, Fleurejus can stretch the field and fake out defenders. He can be a solid fit with a spread offense as a slot receiver.

Highlight film:

Fleurejus:  "Whether it's from the line of scrimmage or out of the backfield, I am certainly a player that can help you win games. A very versatile performer who has the speed to help on special teams and very reliable hands. Many have hinted I could be a quality defensive back at the next level as well."
