We do utilize Tight ends just not at the tight end position.

Some are fall back options, probably most are. But Marshall got 4 recruits become signed LOIs on signing day that basically just fell in our lap because their original schools didn't handle the early signing period right. The schools they intended to sign with over signed in the early signing period and they were squeezed out.

Markeis Colvan ATH - USF
Talik Keaton WR - USF
Tyquavious Terrell WR - Ball State
Jaquan Webb WR - Mississippi State

All 4 3* players. I realize that not all come from P5 programs. But then again Marshall's top 3 QBs in statistics didn't have 1 P5 offer in Rakeem Cato, Chad Pinnington or Byron Leftwich.

This is not really the right place to put this, but I did not want to start a new thread. We've had a number of discussions on ranking systems and what they mean. 247sports says this guy is a two-star running back -- when he looks like a four-star all day long and twice on Sundays to me. I suspect we will be hearing a lot about him in the years to come. What do you guys think?

Looking at his offer list, I am guessing he either played against much inferior competition (his school shows only 389 students grades 6-12) or just too slow for his size at the college level.

Why are we talking about Devonte Lee? Did he commit to ODU?

RE: Football Recruiting: 2018
Hey, Cal. I just thought it was a video folks would enjoy seeing, felt like he was under-rated at two stars, and wondered if anyone else perceived it as I did. SDF opined that it was likely he was playing against inferior competition, and that may be true, but I was impressed by the young man and thought I would share. As far as I know, we never had any interest in him and as I said, this is probably not the right thread for it. So I suppose just disregard.
