The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder was a two-way force for his team last year. From his tight-end post, he hauled in 27 passes for 450 yards and seven touchdowns. And from his defensive-end slot, he registered 10 sacks and 17.5 tackles for a loss. That versatility has commanded attention from coast to coast. To date, he has accumulated offers from 18 schools, including UCLA, Iowa, Northwestern, Boston College, Maryland, Tennessee, Stanford and Michigan.
