Junior Tight End Finds Early Interest

The Class of 2008 saw it's share of top tight end talent. Now, 2009 is looking to follow the same path as an early prospect is gaining interest.

Over the course of the past week Scout.com has been hitting the 7-on-7 circuit looking for the chance to watch top high school talent and bring you their information. Today, we bring you a tight end prospect who is gaining early interest from some top programs.

The Class of 2008 saw a great group of tight end prospects enter and make their college choices before the start of their senior seasons. Now another tight end is starting to make a name for himself giving those programs who missed out on getting one of the country's top tight ends another shot for the Class of 2009.

Standing 6-foot-6, 195-pounds with a 4.6 forty time will get you noticed. Ted Bolser of Indian Hills High School in Cincinnati, Ohio gave a few college programs something to think about as they gather names for their Class of 2009 targets.

Having camped at Iowa, Alabama and Louisville, has seen Bolser receive some early exposure that will allow him the chance to build upon a sophomore season that earned him First Team All- Cincinnati Hills honors while helping his team to a 10-1 overall record.

Watching him during a recent 7-on-7 event at Kings High School allowed for the following breakdown.

Ted Bolser passes the look test as he's a tall lanky player with the ability to go up and get the ball while also being able to use his body to get separation from defenders. A high school wide receiver, Bolser shows very good hands with the ability to get open out in the flat, over the middle or deep. With his current height and weight and two more seasons of development, Bolser will grow into a tight end by the time he's college bound. Work in the weight room is needed for his overall body development but the talent and physical size is there to become one of Ohio's top prospects for the Class of 2009.
