UCLA Offers #11-Ranked Tight End from Texas

July 21 -- UCLA offers a four-star tight end from Texas, Major Tennison, who recently de-committed from Texas, but there are some big-named schools already on him...

UCLA offered the #11-ranked tight end in the country, Major Tennison, from Bullard (Tex.). Tennison recently de-committed from Texas and has opened up his recruitment.

Besides UCLA, other schools now recruiting him are Alabama, LSU, and Michigan, while he has offers from many others.  Scout's recruiting expert in Texas, Gabe Brooks, says that Alabama seems to be the favorite since Tennison de-committed from Texas.

Scout's Midlands Recruiting Manager Greg Powers said of Tennison: 

Tennison is used in a multi-functional way in high school and is a mismatch -- as a slot wide receiver -- for defenses, but has the look of a prospect who could develop into a true in-line tight end. He runs really well for a prospect at his size and gets up the field field very quickly, but is not a 'make them miss' guy when a defender closes quickly on him as he tries to get into his route or gets in the open field. He is an accomplished pass catcher on the high school level and will be a threat to catch the football in a college offense, giving the quarterback an extra weapon whenever he steps onto the field.

UCLA hasn't done well in in recruiting tight ends so far in the 2017 cycle, having missed on a few targets, in a year that has quite a bit of tight end talent in California.
