As we mentioned yesterday here at The Fizz, for tight ends in the class of ’10 there aren’t many better than Trey Millard from Columbia, Missouri.
Millard is a beastly 6’2″, 245-pounds and can play tight end or serve as an H-Back.
He has SUs Greg Adkins on his tail. Adkins is the O-Line coach for the Orange, but at Tennessee coached the tight ends.
Things get more surprising every time a new recruit pops up on the radar and Syracuse is competing with schools like Tennessee, Iowa, Oklahoma and South Carolina for Millard.
Change is a brewin’ here Fizz Nation.
ESPN gives Millard a stellar write up as a middle linebacker, but also props his pass-catching ability as well. Do we smell two-way? (Nah.)
“Overall, Millard brings a lot to the table physically for a program to mold and develop. Has the tools to play a strong side backer position as well. Not going to wow you on film at linebacker but grows on you the more you watch and just does a lot of the little things right at the position. We would not be surprised if a program looking for an athletic H-back with good hands, strength after the catch and solid blocking skills recruits him on offense.”
Wow. And the Orange is competing for this guy? That calls for an impromptu Otto dance party.
Millard also sports a 3.9 GPA: higher than The Fizz can boast at any point in academia.
This burly two-way prospect visited the University of South Carolina last week and just may have Syracuse in the top-four.
A tight end would be huge for this recruiting class because it currently consists of zero offensive players besides two QBs and three RBs.
Last time The Fizz checked, those positions were stocked for a while.
Good recruiting ties and being in Trey Millard’s final four gives the Orange a pretty good shot.
