The class of 2023 is under the microscope this week with the first, full rankings for the class being released. Today we look at the offensive position rankings, including a receiver group that includes outside receivers, slot receivers and tight ends.

A trio of programs start with a pair of four-star receiver commitments making the initial Rivals250, and each situation features one tight end and one wide receiver. The pair committed to Oklahoma rank highest. Tight end Luke Hasz lands at No. 39 in the Rivals250 – the second-highest ranked tight end – while wide receiver Makai Lemon checks in at No. 55. Both prospects committed to the Sooners last week.
Florida also received recent commitments from tight end Mac Markway, ranked No. 95 in the Rivals250, and wide receiver Raymond Cottrell, who comes in just behind Markway at No. 102.
Georgia commits Pearce Spurlin and Daquayvious Sorey rank Nos. 64 and 134, respectively, and are part of an early four-man class for head coach Kirby Smart.
Europe is starting to produce more college football prospects thanks to the increased exposure of the sport on that continent. There are a couple of Europeans who are already generating high FBS interest in the 2023 class, including Sweden’s Theodor Ohrstrom.
The 6-foot-6, 230-pound Ohrstrom had been posting videos of his workouts on social media, but it was not until he joined the PPI Dreamchaser’s Tour in June that the scholarship offers floodgates opened. In a span of nine days, Ohrstrom landed 13 offers from the likes of Alabama, LSU, Ohio State and Texas A&M.
Ohrstrom plans to continue playing for his Rig Academy team in Uppsala, Sweden, but his recruiting stock is high following his summer in the States.
LSU commit Omarion Miller did not make the initial Rivals100 for the 2023 class we released back in March. He did earn his four stars and a 5.8 Rivals Rating in early May. But he debuts in the Rivals250 at No. 75 and sees his rating jump to 5.9 after a strong summer, which included an opportunity for our analysts to see him live at the LSU summer camp. It was at that camp Miller earned his scholarship from the Tigers, which he accepted with his commitment last week.
He has drawn comparisons with recent second-round NFL Draft pick Terrace Marshall Jr., due to his combination of size and playmaking ability as an outside receiver. Miller is a matchup nightmare for defenses, and was a great way for Ed Orgeron to kick off LSU’s 2023 class.
