Class of 2013 Watch List - Troy Fumagalli

Waubonsie Valley tight end Troy Fumagalli had an impressive junior season and now he's preparing to participate in the Under-Armour All-American combine at Disney World's ESPN Sports Complex in a few weeks.

Waubonsie Valley had a very good season, finishing with an 8-2 record. The Warriors were upset in the opening round of play-off action by Belleville East but Paul Murphy has a lot of talent coming back including one of the top tight end prospects in the Chicagoland area.

Troy Fumagalli, a 6-foot-6, 210-pound tight end will be one to watch in the Class of 2013. He has the speed of a receiver and the size to create mismatches in the passing game.

Fumagalli has the frame to add good weight and his coach says the sky is the limit. "Troy [Fumagalli] is a player," said Waubonsie Valley coach Paul Murphy. He's the type of young man who makes everyone around him better.

"I've played linebacker, h-back and tight end at Waubonsie Valley," Fumagalli said. "I've settled in at tight end and that's what I'd like to play in college."

So which schools are recruiting Fumagalli?

"I'm hearing a lot from Stanford, UCLA, Cincinnati and Wisconsin," Fumagalli explained.

"Stanford, Vanderbilt, Wisconsin, Iowa, Miami (Ohio), Cincinnati, Nebraska, Boston College, Temple and Ball State are the schools on my early wish list."

Fumagalli's two older brothers both played their college football at the University of Dayton.
