Hipp talks recruiting

Having a tight end that can block and still threaten the deep middle of the secondary is a key part of a passing game and Grossmont TE Kyle Hipp (6-5, 240) is the perfect combination of size, speed and athleticism. JCFootball.com caught up with Hipp recently and he updated us on recruiting and where things stand now that he's ready to graduate...

Hipp prepped at Cathedral Catholic in the San Diego area and didn't have many opportunities to get his college paid for, so he headed to Grossmont and he's never looked back.

"This was the best decision for me," Hipp told JCFootball.com. "It was still close to home, they have a good program and I really liked what I saw when I came out and watched them play."

With his outstanding size and speed (4.8) Hipp managed to post 11 receptions for 203 yards and four touchdowns as a backup tight end for the Griffs in 2007.

This season Hipp managed to post 18 receptions for 280 yards and four scores while earning All-Conference honors for his efforts.

On the recruiting front, Hipp has been hearing from schools like New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona State, Utah and BYU have all been in contact with Hipp.

"None of those schools have offered, but they are talking to me," Hipp said. "I was talking a lot with New Mexico, but the coaching staff is leaving so, I haven't heard much from them since then.

"Sacramento State is tripping me on December 5th and I could get an offer when I go up there, but right now, I don't have any offers."

Hipp redshirted his first season at Grossmont, so he will be able to sign this month and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
