Junior update: Round Rock's Peter Ullman

Who was that TE from Texas at the U.S. Army Scouting Combine? He won the broad jump, 3-cone drill and the 10-yard dash in the TE/kicker group. The buzz going around the two-day camp event had the same prospect owning the best set of hands out of the tight ends in attendance. His name? <B>Peter Ullman</B> out of Round Rock.

The House of Speed listed Ullman at 6-3, 235 pounds, but the senior-to-be said he's actually closer to 6-4, 240 pounds and said he runs the 40 in the mid-4.8 range (he clocked a hand-timed 5.08 in San Antonio).

The Round Rock High TE earned 2nd-team all-district as a sophomore and then 1st-team all-district as a junior despite being used primarily as a blocker.

"We run the toss/sweep 25-30 times a game and I block down on the DE," Ullman told IT. "Off of that, we set up the pass. So, I didn't get the ball that often."

His stats: 12 catches, 230 yards, 19 yards-per-catch average (not too shabby) and one TD.

His strength numbers: 10 bench reps, 245-pound bench, 350-pound squat, and 245-pound power clean.

And the kid has good hands (voted Team MVP as a receiver by his peers).

Ullman plans to work hard in the offseason to lower his forty time, he thinks he can get it down to mid-4.6 range. And he plays a little hoops for the basketball team to stay in shape and work on his agility (won the 3-cone drill event for his TE group with a 7.36).

"This year, I'm hoping we can open it up a little more," one of Dave Campbell's top-200 underclassmen said. "My hands and my ability to run good routes are my strengths. But I need to work a little on my quickness."

As for who he likes?

"I'm getting a lot of letters from a whole bunch of schools," Ullman said. "But I'm getting a little more from Alabama, A&M, Boston College and Colorado. Most of it (mail) is coming from Oregon, Penn State, LSU, K-State, Iowa, Florida and FSU. And I would say Penn State, K-State, Iowa and LSU are the four schools that seem to be the most interested at this point. I'm keeping my options open, but I kind of like Oregon, K-State, LSU and Penn State. I like 'em all or anyone who likes me."

Ullman plans on attending some summer team camps and would like to make a splash at the Texas Nike Camp at College Station.
