TE Rob Gronkowski Profile
Rob Gronkowski, a 6-6, 250 pound tight end prospect, made another unofficial visit last week but says he's now focusing in on the start of his senior season before hitting the road again.
"I went to see Ohio State last week. It went good," the 5-star tight said. "But I am done with those now. No more visits this summer. I am just going to catch some games this season. We start practice on the 14th."
Not surprisingly, with two brothers attending the University of Maryland, Gronkowski plans to spend a lot of weekends this fall in College Park.
"Yeah I am going to see a lot of Maryland games," stated Gronkowski. "I will probably visit Clemson actually for the game when they play Maryland (in November). Then I am also going to Arizona for the Southern California game.
"And I will probably also go down to a North Carolina game as well, but I am going to play it week by week."
When asked if he is ready to name any favorites in the recruiting process, Gronkowski responded, "No, I am still pretty much wide open."
Clemson tight ends coach Billy Napier continues to try to keep Clemson on the mind of the Scout.com's No. 2 tight end in the nation.
"Coach Napier is staying in contact. I hear from him a lot," he said. "But I am going to take my official visits, after the season before I decide."
One key aspect to keep an eye on in Gronkowski's recruitment is which schools in his top five utilize the tight end the most.
In an interview with Scout.com earlier this year he said, "I'm actually waiting until the season to see how teams use their tight ends, how many tight ends they use at once. I want to go to a school that uses two tight ends mostly every play on offense and a team that throws to the tight ends a lot."
