Catching up with Hutson Prioleau

Hutson Prioleau is ready for his move to Aggieland and speaks to Aggie Websider's Taylor Hamm about his expectations for the 2009 season.

When the Aggies lost Martellus Bennett to the NFL draft in 2007, Mike Sherman came to Aggieland needing to fill a huge hole in the tight end position. Coach Sherman moved Jamie McCoy over to tight end and this turned out to be a very productive position change for the Aggies.

The 2009 class features a talented and motivated tight end recruit Hutson Prioleau. Huston is a 6'5 253lb tight end that is excited about his chance to play for Texas A&M.

"The opportunity is there for me to start if I put in the hard-work over the summer. Playing in the Big 12 as a freshman is a huge honor that I feel I have the opportunity to achieve."

Blocking at the tight end position has been a weakness for the Aggies recently, but Hutson believes that will change next year because of the contribution he feels he can bring to the table.

"I consider myself a leader that likes to get down and dirty. I love to block and create the best opportunities for my teammates on every play."

Prioleau should not be considered only as a blocking threat.

"I have soft hands for a big guy. Not many people know this about me but I know what I am capable of doing. It's all about just going out there and showing everybody."

Hutson has been using the lifting and running programs Coach Kennedy has given him and recently got his 40yrd dash time down to a 4.64. Hutson plans on rooming with Ryan Swope in the fall and is scheduled to move to Aggieland June 12th.
