Who is now coaching the TEs? Or should I ask, who is coaching THE tight end? I have lost track.
How about some out-of-the-box thinking - -
I know Hill favors TE heavy formations but maybe he can occasionally go Ogre since TEs are in short supply. Alijah Bates was signed as a 6-8 235 lb recruit to play OT. As a red shirt freshman, he is up to about 275 lbs. But he was athletic enough to play DE in HS as well as average about 12 PPG on the basketball team. So maybe he is athletic enough to take some snaps as a TE/Ogre. He might turn out to be a 6-8 receiving threat; that is a great corner fade target. Starting at 235 lbs, I bet it would be easier for him to lose 15 lbs than it will be for him to gain 25 more lbs to play OT. With the transfers and a couple roster linemen ahead of him, this might his best chance to see the field.
