I hope so, too.
But there are some good clips in those highlights.
Hope we get both of them.

Watched his Hudl video earlier-This kid isn't bad-he plays more WR than TE and may not be as strong as will need to be to get on the field as a traditional TE but he's pretty strong for a skinnier kid. Explosive burst for a big guy and can outrun DBs at least in high school. Should be a mismatch against LBs and can get downfield. Looks like he's got good catching technique too catching the ball with his hands away from his body and makes some tough catches in the air. Probably won't be ready for TE in short yardage though anytime soon
"With a quarter of a tank of gas, we can get everything we need right here in DFW." -SMU Head Coach Chad Morris

When momentum starts rolling downhill in recruiting-WATCH OUT.

My bet is he fills out. Best comment I read was .... he knows how to catch with his hands.
YEAH.

Most interesting is that we are still recruiting TE, which is further evidence that this won't be a true Air Raid offense...

Or that the staff has a vision of using some of them elsewhere.

Always interesting to see how guys develop physically once the get on campus and spend a few years in the program. Nice to see a guy with a big frame and ball skills added to the mix.

Speaking of TE, what's up with Rau? All the P5 offers, and Stallion hype, and still sitting behind Kaufman and Becker?

Looks the part, too. I'm not sure what's up with him. Blocking issues?

I assume he will redshirt. Maybe in a few years he will put on a lot of weight and be a beast.
