Better 2016: JuJu Smith-Schuster or Calvin Ridley?
Friday July 8th, 2016

The consistent producer or the new sensation? The debate over who will be the best wide receiver in college football this season comes down to USC’s JuJu Smith-Schuster and Alabama’s Calvin Ridley.

Smith-Schuster built on a solid freshman campaign with 1,454 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns last season, racking up 80 or more yards in 10 games. Ridley took some time to get going in his freshman season but proved himself the most dangerous threat in Alabama’s passing game by the end of the year. He shined in the Crimson Tide’s victories over Florida in the SEC Championship Game and Michigan State in the College Football Playoff semifinals, hauling in a combined 16 passes for 240 yards.

So who will be the top receiver in 2016? SI.com’s Colin Becht and Chris Johnson debate in the video above.
