2018 Sulphur (La.) three-star tight end Christian Trahan is a hot name in the recruiting world, picking up offers from Arizona State and Oklahoma State as of late, but the Louisiana tight end is focused on improving this spring before his recruitment takes center stage.

"Good, just starting it up and getting back into pads. Really just getting a step faster in the run game and passing game," Trahan told Scout on Friday. "Blocking is my strength and mismatches out there on my route tree."

The 6-3, 238-pound tight end did name a leader though. SMU currently holds the lead for Trahan's signature as he wraps up the first week of spring practice because of relationships and academics.

"It's an honor. This whole recruiting process is an honor. SMU is up there at the top because of the relationships with the coaches," Trahan said. "They're telling me about the academics and how it's a pretty prestigious school. They're telling me I'd be able to fit in as far as academics. It might be a little tough at the beginning, but once I get into it, I'll be fine. They see me at H-Back and split out, just like in my offense."

Tight ends coach Keith Gunn and offensive coordinator Joe Craddock were down to see Trahan last week. 

"They're awesome. I have a great relationship with coach Gunn. We talk just about every day. I love him," Trahan said. "I guess it's just his knowing of all his players. He's always checking in on you and it's not just about football. I just met him (Craddock), but he seems like a really good guy." http://www.scout.com/college/southern-methodist/story/1776514-juco-dt-co...

With Power 5 offers from Arizona State and Oklahoma State to his name now, Trahan said it's a testament to Sulphur's talent.

"I just picked up a big offer from Arizona State and SMU and Marshall are hard on me. Oklahoma State is also there," Trahan said. "It opens up eyes. This town really doesn't have a lot of talent coming out of it, but it shoes that Sulphur is here to play."

With Arizona State and Oklahoma State, Trahan feels like he can fit in well at both schools.

"Both teams I feel like I can fit in well to their offenses. They run similar to what we run," Trahan said. "I've been talking to them for a while. It's a family environment (at Arizona State). All the coaches contact you and see how you're doing. That's the same with Oklahoma State. They D-Line coach will call you and see how you're doing even though I play tight end."

LSU tight ends coach Steve Ensminger is also beginning to show interest and while an offer could change a lot of things, he didn't want to speculate on what it would mean to be offered.

"They're telling me to go to camp and they're coming to watch me at practice this week," Trahan said. "He's a smart coach. He's been in the game a long time."

As far as his decision goes, he's seen his timeline pushed back a little bit. Trahan wants to get to Arizona State and Marshall this summer. He's already been to SMU and loves the campus.

"I had it set for June, but it might have pushed it back a little bit to see what they're like," Trahan said. "I like it over there. It's really nice. Dallas is a great city and it's in a good part of town. It's a really great campus."
