If you are a short WR, it is still possible. You can still get recruited to a school but there are a couple of things you need to emphasize to get a college coaches attention.
1. You cannot drop anything. As a short guy you are already written off. Coaches are just looking for a reason to write you off even more. Dropping the ball is the easiest way to avoid a scholarship. As a shorter athlete you have to love the details. You need to fall in love with the details of the position and catching is all about the details. Make sure you catch every ball thrown your way. Challenge yourself at practice and in training with no drops.
2. The second thing you need to emphasize as a short WR is speed and explosiveness. If you are short but slow, you can’t play at the next level. However you can make up for a lack of height with your athleticism. I’m not saying you have to run a great 40 time either, college coaches care about what you can do on film not in t-shirt/shorts. Your 40 time is irrelevant until you get to the NFL Combine. So just focus on building that speed and explosiveness so it can show up on your highlight tape.

3. Last but not least you need to play smart as a short WR. College coaches will want to see if you are gonna be an asset to their team, so being able to sit against zone coverages, get open against press DBs who are physical and more are essential traits in order for a short WR to play at the next level. Not to mention the D1 level. So if you can emphasize not dropping passes, building your speed and then improving your football IQ, you can stand out to a college coach this year even if you are undersized.
