TE Zarrian Holcombe commits to Illini

Former Texas A&M commits during official visit to Illinois

Zarrian Holcombe didn't take much time on his official visit to Illinois before breaking big news.

Hours after arriving on campus, the Houston (Texas) Summer Creek tight end committed to the Illini.

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound tight end gives Illinois a big, athletic target at a need position.

Easterling's Evaluation:

Holcombe is an explosive pass-catching tight end who can both line up at the end of the line of scrimmage, or flex out as more of a wide receiver.  He gets off of the line quickly at the snap, which helps him gain an early advantage over linebackers and safeties.  

Holcombe has good hands and is surprisingly shifty and evasive in space for his size.  Not much of a blocker at this point, he will need to add weight to handle the physicality of college football in the Big Ten, but Holcombe has the frame to carry much more lean weight.

Holcombe will give Illinois a receiving threat over the middle of the field, somewhere they have struggled mightily the last couple of years.  He presents a matchup difficulty for linebackers, and can occupy a safety, freeing up the run game somewhat and creating more one-on-one matchups on the perimeter.

Scout's analysis: "There is plenty to like with Holcombe. For one, he has a large frame that will allow the coaching staff to work it to best suit the needs of the team. He could bulk and be more of the true tight end, but his skills set will allow him to play more of a role than just in the trenches. He is a match up nightmare. He has great ball skills and body control to put himself in position to catch passes while completely sealing off the DB or the LB."
