Former walk-on that was moved in and out of the starting lineup before winning the position outright as a senior. Totaled 16/179/11.2/0 catching the ball last year after combining for only seven receptions during his initial three seasons.
Solid, blocking tight end with marginal football skills. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, extends well to make the catch and uses his body to shield away opponents. Catches the ball away from his frame and reliable when the pass is thrown in his direction. Blocks with forward lean, leverage and quick setting in pass protection. Not quick, explosive nor is he very active in any aspect of his game. Only used in the passing game on occasion, does not make himself an active target for the quarterback and only effective in a small area as a blocker. Free Agent.
