Watch: College WR makes Odell Beckham-like catch

The catch that helped vault Odell Beckham's status as an NFL star was duplicated about as well as anyone could by Ricky Hagins on Tuesday. Same reach-back, one-handed grab, same kind of throw -- deep pass to the right sideline -- just on a much, much smaller scale.

How small?

Ever heard of Alfred State? Hagins is a freshman receiver at the Division III school in western New York, and made his Beckham-like catch at practice to the roaring approval of his teammates.

OK, so it didn't happen with a Dallas Cowboys defender impeding the catch, or with thousands of screaming fans collectively amazed at MetLife Stadium.

But you can bet Hagins is the talk of Alfred State today after making that amazing play.
