From Nashville, Tenn., Ponchillia posted elite numbers in high school, accounting for 108 receptions, 2,136 yards and 24 touchdowns. Despite receiving All-Region Offensive Player of the Year honors and nominated as an All-State selection, the wide receiver went under-scouted.
Ponchillia, 5’11”, 190 lbs, played collegiate ball at Eastern Tennessee State & Western Kentucky University, where he established himself as a dynamic and reliable offensive weapon. Despite playing out of the limelight, NFL scouts took notice. Ponchillia was invited to Jacksonville Jaguars camp in 2018.
In 2019, at age 24, Ponchillia will receive a golden opportunity to impress NFL scouts at The Spring League in Austin, Texas.
