  Marques Hagans see Dontayvion Wicks as an All-ACC-caliber wide receiver. The redshirt sophomore's stat sheet shows that he has just three catches in his college career, the last one coming on Nov. 23, 2019, but Wicks' talent is undeniable. After missing 2020 due to injury, Wicks is fully healthy, and he stole the show in the team's spring game when he torched the team's defensive backs with smooth route running and effortless speed. "I told him, 'My biggest disappointment is if I don't get him to maximize the ability that he has,'" Hagans, UVa's wide receivers coach, said. "If I don't get him to see what I see in him, then I failed him as a coach." Hagans pushes all his players to maximize their ability, but he also understands that some players possess better physical tools than others. At 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, Wicks boasts good size and impressive speed and quickness that many receivers on the roster simply can't match.

Wicks might not headline UVa's group of receivers, but he's an obvious choice for a breakout season. He's so talented that head coach Bronco Mendenhall expects him to fill the shoes of 6-7 Lavel Davis Jr., who will miss at least most of the 2021 season as he recovers from an ACL injury. Davis Jr. snagged 20 receptions for 515 yards and five touchdowns as a freshman. The uber-athletic wide receiver served as the team's best downfield threat, averaging 25.75 yards per reception. "We don't have anyone else that's 6-7," Mendenhall said Friday, "but we do have Dontayvion Wicks back, so we basically traded. He had two or three or four long catches today. I like that. I'd rather have them both." - Charlottesville Daily Progress
