Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior after posting career-best numbers of 51 receptions/537 yards/7 TDs. Junior totals included 33/365/1.
Positives: Dependable pass catching tight end who does the little things well. Fluid releasing off the line into pass routes, displays good awareness and possesses soft, reliable hands. Comes back to the quarterback or finds the soft spot in the defense to make himself an available target. Solid hand catcher who consistently extends to make the reception away from his frame. Keeps the play inbounds after the catch trying to pick up as much yardage as possible. Gives effort blocking and displays ability when put in motion. Gets extra attention from defenses but wins out in battles and makes catches in stride.
Negatives: One-speed tight end who is not a true downfield threat. Gives effort blocking yet lacks functional football strength.
Analysis: Provo has watched his game take off the past two seasons and offers potential at the next level as a move tight end who will be most effective when placed in motion before the snap.
