recruit804 Fab 30: Kadarius Singleton WR Hopewell

If you didn’t get a chance to see Hopewell starting wide receiver Kadarius Singleton on the football field last season then you missed one of the most dynamic prospects in all the Central Region. At the same time, I won’t hold that against many people who were enamored by the playing style Ronnie Walker, Greg Cuffey or Sean Allen on the offensive side of the ball. Truth be told, Hopewell was just stacked anywhere you looked on the field and on both sides of the ball. Singleton was overshadowed more times than not by Allen who started on the opposite side of the offensive line. However, it’s safe to say that Singleton’s contribution was definitely a major factor in the Blue Devils 3A championship run.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in and around the city of Richmond. Continuing our countdown as the 27th best senior prospect region-wide is Hopewell starting wide receiver Kadarius Singleton.

Hopewell was long overdue for another 3A state title last winning it in 2003 before last season. With under a minute left in the championship game against Heritage, Coach Ricky Irby drew up a play that would put the ball in the hands of Kadarius Singleton on 4th and 15. Singleton was able to came down with a 24-yard catch that enabled the Blue Devils to ice the game earning a 20-14 victory. That’s the type of wide receiver Hopewell has in Kadarius Singleton.
Aside from his size and speed, the Hopewell product has proved over the years that the moment has never become too big for him. Last season Singleton logged 400 receiving yards on 23 receptions and at least three touchdown catches. Currently, Singleton holds college offers from Fordham and Old Dominion.
Despite the Blue Devils going through a transformation at the quarterback position this season, Coach Ricky Irby has to rest easy in knowing he has a few studs at wide receiver.
