Larkins wants some options

He was an integral part of one of the top JC programs in the country the past two years, but Butler TE Nate Larkins (6-4, 240) is still without a place to play his final two years of college football. JCFootball.com caught up with the talented tight end/H-back prospect and he updated us on where things stand at this point and time...

"I have an offer to walk-on and Kansas State right now, but I'm hoping something else comes along," Larkins told JCFootball.com. "I was a full-qualifier out of high school, so I can leave anytime I want to."

Larkins said with Butler's power offense he wasn't used the past two seasons much in the passing game, but he said that didn't matter too much.

"We had thousand-yard backs (Beau Johnson in 2007 and Randell Bell in 2008) both years I played," Larkins said. "That is a big accomplishment and something me and the rest of the tight ends and the line took a lot of pride in.

"They used me as a lead-blocker, an H-Back a tight end, everywhere they could actually."

In 2007, Larkins used his good size and 4.78 speed to haul in five receptions for 44 yards and this past fall he caught nine passes for 77 yards and a touchdown.

"I will do whatever a team needs me to do," Larkins said. "I can catch it or I can block for you, whatever you need, I just want a chance."

Larkins redshirted in 2006, so he'll have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
