Cody Small has never played at Tight End until this year. The Lonestar standout played Defensive End for Cy-Woods High School on the north end of Houston last year but with his size and hands, made the switch over to TE this summer.
" I played wide receiver in middle school and then in 9th and 10th grade we did not have a defensive end so I did not yet have the speed to play tight end so they moved me to defensive end," said Small.
Taking in numerous camps throughout the summer, Small is making the transition to Tight End nicely and showcasing his speed and skills. And college coaches are noticing, with Small picking up an offer from Kansas State this past week.
As for what stands out about each school, Cody had this to say about some of his early favorites.
Kansas State- "They have a great campus. I went there for a camp and got to see Manhattan and the campus and it is just beautiful. Their facilities are great and it is just a nice area. Coach Dimel talked to me a lot and I got a chance to talk to Coach Snyder, I mean the Coach Snyder, he is a legend and just their mix of academics and athletics and the town itself is just really nice."
Texas Tech - " They have a good program and good coaches. I have seen their campus too and it is nice."
Arkansas - "I camp there later this weekend and I am interested in looking at everything there. They have been recruiting me hard and I want to look at them."
TCU - " I am here in Fort Worth right now and I am going to camp at TCU tomorrow to check them out. They have very nice facilities and they have done a lot of good things this past year. They are a team that has really got a lot of attention and I an interested in looking at their campus more."
Cody Small ran a 4.58 forty at a recent camp and at 6-foot-4 and 237 pounds with the soft hands of a receiver, he looks to continue to garner attention.
We will have a full interview with Cody later this week where we break down what he is looking for in a school and when he wants to make his final decision. Stay Tuned.....
