Scouting Report/Player Notes (2011 season)

Tall, lanky receiver prospect who has shown his ability to make the big play as a Tar Heel. Specifically, Highsmith had a huge touchdown reception against the Tennessee Volunteers in the Motor City Bowl, where he hauled in a 39 yard bomb from T.J. Yates for his third touchdown reception on the season. Regressed a bit statistically from his freshman to his sophomore year, which is something to monitor because he is a very, very talented player. Has 62 career receptions for 773 yards and five total touchdowns. Has solid speed and good hands, and could emerge as another big play threat.
