Irish offer four-star tight end
Tight end Will Gragg of Pine Bluff (Ark.) High has offers from the likes of Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Texas, Louisville and Oklahoma. And, now Notre Dame has added itself to that list. "I'm glad I got that offer," Gragg said. "Right now, I'm only going by what I've seen on TV from them over the years. I talked to Coach (Bob) Elliott on the phone today, and he likes how I can beat defensive ends off the block and beat safeties down the field." "I know that Notre Dame has great tight end tradition," Gragg said. "They had a tight end get drafted in the first round last year, and they are going to have another tight end get drafted this year." Gragg, who plans to graduate in December, has official visits, including dates, scheduled to Texas, Ole Miss, LSU, Florida State and Alabama. However, three of them are tentative. "I don't know for sure, yet," Gragg said. "I have them scheduled, but it's possible they could change. I know that going to Texas on Sept. 6 and Ole Miss on Oct. 4 are definitely going to happen." Notre Dame could potentially receive a visit this spring and/or fall. "I'll definitely visit," Gragg said. "This summer and fall, most likely." Gragg has visited Ole Miss and Texas so far this spring. "I doubt I'll take any more visits this spring," Gragg said. "If I do, it will be spur of the moment." Even with officials in mind, the 6-foot-4, 245-pound tight end maintains he doesn't have any favorites. "I'll come out with a list after the summer, probably after I see a few more schools," Gragg said. Gragg had over 700 yards receiving in his junior year campaign. "I think I'm pretty natural at catching the ball, so this past summer and fall I really tried to improve my blocking, and I think I did that pretty well," Gragg said. Gragg is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 7 tight end in the class of 2015.
