Riverside (Calif.) North tight end Marcus Baugh heads the final West rankings at tight end...
West: Final Top Ten Tight Ends
Committed to Ohio State
Baugh is an incredible athlete on both sides of the ball. He can run, he can catch, and he can
chuck defenders trying to jam him. He's a physical presence who's gotten
bigger and stronger to already go with his hands and speed. Baugh was
selected to the UnderArmour All-America Game.
Santa Ana, Calif.
Committed to UCLA
Duarte is a big receiver that will be an insider receiver in
college. He's a natural pass catcher with great hands and he uses his body very
well. Had a big senior season on both sides of the ball en route to all-state
honors and was selected to the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.
Committed to Oregon
Mundt had a great senior year, at both tight end and
defensive end, helping his school win their first ever CIF State Championship.
He was selected to the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.
Committed to Oregon
Mattingly can play on either side of the ball, either as an
outside linebacker or tight end. While he will likely play linebacker in
college, we feel his best position is at tight end. He was picked to the
Offense-Defense All-American Bowl.
De La Salle
Committed to Stanford
Hooper, like Mattingly, was recruited to play on both sides
of the ball, with most of his offers coming at defensive end, where he starred
this season in leading the Spartans to their fourth straight CIF State title.
But Stanford, who's had a nice run of tight ends, likes Hooper on offense and he
picked the Cardinal knowing that offense is where his future is. Hooper
was selected to the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.
