Also lettered in track as an Illinois prep. Appeared in six games as a true freshman in 2008 but did not record any statistics. Saw action in eight contests as a backup in ’09, catching one pass for three yards and no touchdowns. Played in all 13 games in ’10 and caught 9-154-0 (17.1). Grabbed 8-95-2 (11.9) in 12 games including starts in the first three contests at tight end in ’11. Did not participate in the Insight Bowl because of a sprained foot.Positives:
Has intriguing measurables, good straight-line speed and outstanding leaping ability — has a 36-inch vertical jump. Gets out of his stance with urgency and scraps as a blocker. Smart. Good personal character. Has some upside.Negatives:
Needs to get stronger. Tight hips. Stiff, unpolished route runner. Ducks his head and gets outmuscled as a blocker. Minimal production — never played a prominent role in the offense. Questionable toughness and football character — has a spoiled, white-collar mentality.Summary:
Raw, height-weight-speed prospect whose makeup and feel for the game do not run parallel with his unique athletic ability. Workout numbers will earn him a look as a developmental H-back/“move” tight end, but he failed to ascend as a senior with increased opportunity.
