Recruiting: A Tight End Who Can Throw?

There is no doubt that Oklahoma State has stepped up its pursuit of a tight end in the 2010 recruiting class. It appears one of the prospects that the Cowboy coaching staff has targeted is athlete Noah Cheshier of Wylie, Texas.

"I played fullback as a sophomore, tight end as a junior, and this year I'm playing quarterback," said Cheshier. "Most of the schools recruiting me are recruiting me to play tight end, and I want to play tight end."

The 6-3, 225-pound Cheshier can run a 4.7 and he is strong and tough. He has completed 106 of 183 passes, 58 percent of his throws, for 1,478 yards and 10 touchdown thus far this season. Not bad for a tight end.

He has thrown for more than 200 yards in four different games and he has rushed for 468 yards, a 5. 5 yards per carry average, and nine touchdowns. Cheshier and Wylie take on Plano East on Friday night.

"I'm coming up to Oklahoma State for the game (homecoming vs. Missouri) this weekend," said Cheshier. "I know Oklahoma State is in Stillwater and has a great campus, and they have a lot of good hunting and fishing."

Cheshier said he is interested in both dove hunting and fishing.

"As far as campuses, I have only been on OU and Baylor campuses for camps," he added. "I'm being recruited by Kansas, Arkansas, Louisiana Tech, Wake Forest really wants me, and Arizona has offered. Purdue and Oklahoma have contacted me some too."

Cheshier claims no favorites right now and is just eager to take a look at the schools that are interested in him.
