Sunshine State tight end pledges to USC
GamecockAnthem.com spoke last week with Head Coach Corky Rogers at The Bolles School, and the former National High School Coach of the Year had nothing but praise for Mike Triglia.
"He's really just an all-around, good football player. He's started for three or four years for us here, and he's a good blocker and a good receiver," said Rogers. "I think he's going to have a good college career no matter where he ends up. He's going to get nothing but bigger and stronger, and he's already pretty good size to begin with. I look for him to have a really good future, I really do."
According to Rogers, Triglia is one of the rare tight ends out there that can both block well and serve as a legitimate receiving threat in the offense.
"He's a good, solid receiver, but we certainly asked him to block a lot as well. He has a good combination of both. A lot of schools are having problems at the tight end position in college football, finding somebody that can both block and receive. You either have the receiving-type or the blocking-type, but I think he's a pretty good combination of both."
Triglia held offers from Georgia Tech, Illinois, Ole Miss, Wake Forest and others. He becomes South Carolina's 20th commitment in the 2008 recruiting class.
