Julian Fleming has long been regarded as the top receiver in the 2020 class, but on Friday he was named the top overall player in the 2020 class.
The five-star Ohio State wide receiver signee picked up a national player of the year honor on Friday evening when he was named the 2019 High School Football America / National High School Coaches Association Senior Player of the Year.
Rated as the No. 1 receiver and the No. 2 overall player in the 2020 class in the 247 Composite, Fleming collects the award after a spectacular senior season where he finished with 72 catches for 1,572 yards with 23 touchdowns while leading his Southern Columbia High School to its third-straight state title.
Fleming is the third Ohio State signee to win the award since its inception for the 1999 high school football season, joining Terrelle Pryor in 2007 and Tate Martell in 2016.
