As of Wednesday, the state of California’s No. 3 ranked tight end: 2018 prospect Tae Le of Newport Beach (Calif.) Corona Del Mar is now being courted by 11 Division I programs, thanks to adding offers from Hawaii and Boise State.
The two Mountain West programs have made it abundantly clear to the 6-foot-4, 237-pound target that he’s an ideal fit for their offense.
The three-star Le tells Scout that Hawaii safeties coach Jacob Yoro offered him the scholarship. The Warriors' history of putting points on the board through its aerial attack already piques Le’s interest.
“Their offensive style is something I can play in, without a doubt,” Le said.
As for the Broncos, tight ends coach/special teams coordinator Kent Riddle extended the offer to Le, who adds that the Boise State staff has exhibited a friendly attitude to Le.
“The staff there has been extremely warm and welcoming to me,” Le said. “We've discussed things such as where they see me in their offense and the great things the school has to offer. Same as Hawaii, I see an offense that definitely fits my playing style.”
Le, who is a 4.0 student off the field, says he’s not planning to announce his short list of favorites or verbal commitment over the summer. His primary focus is the summer and fall haul with the Sea Kings – who were the runner-up in the CIF Southern Section Division 4 title game last December against Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon.
“In regards for my top schools, I plan on doing that after my senior season. Same for my commitment, I plan on doing that sometime after this next season,” Le said.
