While many will be talking about Dion Sims as one of the top tight ends in the country, it was another Michigan tight end that turned several heads during the New Level 7-on-7 Passing Camp in Akron, Ohio last weekend.
Reid Fragel may be a tight end at the high school level, but several programs have interest in moving him to the offensive line. Not the Buckeyes, they vision Fragel as the type of player that can help make their offense one of the better ones in college football.
At 6-foot-7, 255-pounds Fragel showed great athletic ability for a man his size and should be considered on of the top prospects in the Midwest.
On Saturday before making the trip to Akron the Fragel's made a trip to Columbus for an unofficial visit to The Ohio State University.
While Fragel may be a new name to the Buckeye Faithful, it hasn't been from a lack of trying as Ohio State has tried on several occasions to reach Fragel one way or another.
There are two Grosse Point High Schools in Michigan with Fragel attending South. Somehow mail going from Ohio State to Fragel was ending up at North and wasn't passed along until just the past couple of weeks.
While the Buckeyes are eying Sims they also told Fragel they see him as a tight end or sort of an extra guy along the line.
Other schools showing interest include Michigan, Michigan State, Cincinnati and Purdue.
