Elite 2016 tight end down to three schools
Via 247sports, 2016 tight end prospect Nick Eubanks has narrowed his list down to three schools: Alabama, Florida, and USC. Eubanks will visit Alabama this upcoming weekend, and then will head to Los Angeles to check out the Trojans on Jan. 22.
The 6'6", 230-pound athlete from American Heritage School in Plantation, Fla. is an exceptional talent. He represents the new-age tight end in a sense -- where pass-catching abilities and flexibility on the field is somewhat prioritized over the traditional characteristics of blocking and leaking out in play-action situations.
Eubanks is athletic enough to be split out wide as a jumbo receiver. Dually, he possesses the downfield speed to create big plays in the passing game.
It's an interesting group of finalists for Eubanks. USC already has a tight end commitment from highly-regarded Pennsylvania prospect Cary Angeline. Alabama currently has pledges from two high school tight ends in Miller Forristall and Brendan Scales.
Florida -- on the other hand -- does not have a commitment at the position. Couple that with the fact Jake McGee has graduated, and there's potentially a gaping hole at the tight end spot for the Gators.
