A player who definitely passed the eyeball test at the Texas 7v7 State tournament was Trophy Club (Texas) Byron Nelson 2016 tight Kellen Diesch, a 6-foot-6.5, 260-pound athlete.

Diesch, who will be a junior this fall, has started hearing from a few programs, specifically Oklahoma and Tennessee, though North Texas has also shown interest in the prospect.

"The two people who I have spoken with the most are Tennessee tight ends coach Mark Elder and Oklahoma offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh. They are the ones who are showing the most interest," he said.

"I went to the Oklahoma camp a few weeks ago and I will be going to the Tennessee camp next weekend."

He may still be awaiting his first offer, but he's already started taking in the recruiting process, including camps.

"I went to the Oklahoma camp a few weeks ago and I will be going to the Tennessee camp next weekend," he said.

Though he also plays defensive end for Byron Nelson, Diesch said that he'll likely stay at tight end at the next level.

"I really like making plays and I've become a faster and stronger player. I think I'll make more plays this year passing-wise. I've also been working on my routes this spring," he said.

Diesch is confident about the fall and says he's ready to do his part to propel the offense to a winning season.

"Our team is looking really good. This year, I just want to step up and make some plays," he said.
