Tight End's (0) The 'Runners signed two tight ends in the 2014 class, Triston Crossland and Cameron Oliver. They will have to replace departing senior Cole Hubble after the 2014 campaign and we break down who's a target and other prospects being recruited. Donta Thompson 6'5" 200lbs (Ennis HS)
He's currently the only known offer out at the position. The UTSA staff offered him back towards the end of May. Since then, Colorado, Illinois, and Texas State have all extended.
Thompson is a target in the mold of the "Flex" position. He's got a wide-outs frame and can easily add 10-20lbs and be a mismatch for most DB's or LB's, whether it's across the field on in the red zone. He's not the old school, rugged, smash mouth type of tight end. He'll be a tough draw for anyone and can rack up those yards up the seams or in space.
In our previous update, Thompson was impressed with how quickly the UTSA program has risen and it's got his interest. He wasn't sure on whether he'd be able to get a visit in or not.
Other tight end prospects to note are Hunter Herndon (North Forney) and Kiki Hill (Aransas Pass). Herndon is a Rice commit, but is keeping his options open. With great starts to either of their senior seasons, they could go from prospect to target. As the high school football season nears, look for 1-2 more names to jump onto the recruiting radar as the staff looks to find it's one tight end commit.
Colin Jeter of Kilgore JC was the first TE offered by the staff. He was being targeted to be a late addition to the '14 class where UTSA would then not recruit one for the '15 cycle. It was only a matter of days before Jeter got an offer he couldn't resist. While at LSU's camp, their coaching staff was blown away and offered on the spot. Jeter committed to the SEC power two days later.
