Recruiting picks up for Illinois TE/DE prospect

Some colleges look at versatile, 6-3, 225-pound Peter Buchignani as a tight end, while others see a linebacker, safety or even defensive end. He combines 4.59 speed in the 40 with a bench press of 400 and excellent academics. Two schools have already offered, but Buchignani has some good reasons for being interested in Vanderbilt.
