Kid isn’t going to be a LT lol, kill that noise. I could see edge though, but I love the kid at TE and fully expect for him to start off there. He is a raw jumbo athlete with a high ceiling. Redshirt him and let him blossom. I don’t think he has anywhere near the growth potential to be an OT. He will max out in 240-245 area to remain effective. Mikeska, who will likely play in the 250’s, is much closer to that even though I believe its 0% chance he ends up on the OL either. I think that whole “we will convert one of these TE’s to OL” narrative was just a fairytale created by some cane fans to try to justify taking 3 TE’s lol. We are taking 3 TE’s because this is a TE heavy offense and they all bring something different to the table and competition is necessary for success. We are taking 6 OL minimum as it is. If we want more, we can just recruit and sign more, no need for to convert anyone lol. All JMO of course.

Jumbo athletes with those types of hands don’t just grow on trees.

If he does expirement between DE and TE, just don't move him back and forth like we did with Patchan. Given him his RS year to find a position and stick with it.

And tried to convert a punter to wide receiver…

You mean "had" to convert....

The greatest mystery to me, over the past 10+ years, is how the University of Miami, sitting where it sits, has not been able to luck into a truly high impact, local, WR or DB. Even if we lost battles for top guys, we should have tripped over one somehow.
