Biography: Three-year starter who posted 34 receptions/699 yards/4 TDs as a senior after posting junior totals of 32/593/4.
Positives: Nice-sized receiver who does the little things well. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, works to make himself an available target and uses his size and strength to his advantage. Uses his frame to box out opponents and protect the ball. Works his hands to get separation from defenders. Makes the difficult catch with opponents draped on him or gets up in a crowd to grab the high throw. Looks the ball into his hands and makes the reception away from his frame. Strong running after the catch. Effective downfield blocker who turns defenders away from the play and seals open running lanes.
Negatives: Not a fluid or graceful receiver and displays some stiffness in his game. Lacks top-end speed and cannot run to the long throw. Average route runner.
Analysis: Hemingway is not a spectacular prospect, but he is effective in all facets of the game. He projects as a fourth wide out at the next level and has the ability to see action as a rookie.
