The Owls have 16 wide receivers in camp this summer, and a number of them are well over 6 feet tall.

Red shirt wide receiver Romond Deloatch, who is starting to round into shape after suffering a knee injury, is 6-4, 225.  The freshman class is loaded with huge targets in Ventell Bryant (6-3, 180) and Derrick Ingram (6-1, 193), who were teammates at Jefferson High in Tampa.  Matt Eaton is (6-4, 200) is another receiver that also could turn into a huge target.

However, it looks like they want to continue getting more size. Last Friday the Owls offered a scholarship to 6-5 class of 2016 prospect Aaron Matthews. Matthews has also been offered by Pitt.
