SIGNED: Kickapoo Tight End Travis Vokolek is a Rutgers Scarlet Knight

Springfield (Mo.) Kickapoo tight end Travis Vokolek signed to become a Rutgers Scarlet Knight.

Projected Position – Tight End

In His Words – “[My family] is definitely excited. I could not turn down this opportunity because I'm playing in the Big Ten at the highest level. I have a chance to play early. How could I turn this down? My mom and the rest of my family agree that Rutgers is the best place for me.”

Scouting the Scarlet Knight – “The Rutgers tight end room is lonely with position changes, injuries and departures in the offseason. Tight end is clearly an important factor to Jerry Kill's offense. He brought in Vokolek to be a receiver first and blocker second. Vokolek is nowhere near the size of other Rutgers tight ends, yet, but his hands are consistent and he brings the footwork and wiggle of a basketball player. Vokolek can make linebackers miss in space.” – Scarlet Report Publisher Sam Hellman.
