Most in college football circles already are buzzing about 2016 tight end Isaac Nauta. One coach at a major program said behind the scenes that he thinks Nauta could contend for No. 1 prospect in the country status when it is time to rank the ’16 cycle.

....well this is awesome, SC and FSU are in the lead for him. He's the #1TE, #16 Overall 5 Star on 247 sports. That's not what he told SC reporters either, it's what he told the auburn folks.

He really likes Mangus, our campus and the academic program we have that he's thinking about majoring in.

So where do we sit for TEs in 2 years? I think there would be a lot of room to step right in and contribute.

Anyone think that he could easily come in and play FB too? That blocking is just too good not to think about him leading the way.

He looks pretty fast for being that big. Anyone know how fast he is?

Our TE situation looks kind of like this:

Busta: Could come back this year or take a med-RS if his tricep doesn't heal. I still think no matter what he's 70% to leave after this season.

Adams: If Busta comes back and takes some of the production, Adams may come back next year. If Busta does not come back, Adams will get a lot of the production and we may end up losing both, but Adams would be leaving early.

Owens: He has 2 years left to play, if he doesn't transfer b/w now and then he should be available for the 2015 season.

Rainey: He has 3 seasons left as a rising RS Soph. I would expect him to start challenging for playing time this year and next year.

August: He's a walk-on, we'll see if he develops into a contributor.

No matter how this plays out, it looks like Rainey, August and any TE we bring in this year will be the TE depth going into 2016. So a stud like Nauta will probably come in and work himself at least onto the 2 Deep his FR year.

As far as any TE's contributing as a FB, that will depend on the development of Joe Blue. If Blue comes in and wins the spot early, there won't be a need, but I could also see Rainey as a FB. He could be an awesome FB like DiMarco.

Issac was clocked at 4.59 at a camp in the 40. Here are some stats and highlights.

Default Re: 2016 - Issac Nauta

One of the things that could separate USC from fsu at TE for Nauta is the depth chart.

They already have a commitment from 4 Star JUCO TE, Josh McNeil, for 2015. So he'll be there in 2016 with 3 years to play 2.
fsu is the leader for their Top2 2015 TE targets as well in 4 Star Garrett Williams and 3 Star Jalen Wilkerson.
Last year, fsu took two 4 Star TE's. The one from TX, Marvin Saunders is REALLY good.
In 2012, they got a stud TE as well in 4 Star, Christo Kourtzidis. He was a RS FR last year and will most likely be there in 2016.

If fsu takes 2 TE's this year, they could have four 4 Star TE's in the most recent two recruiting cycles and most of them would already have 2+ years in their system before Nauta got to campus. That's a lot of competition, good for fsu, but that depth chart would have to favor USC for getting a guy who wants to contribute early.

Crosby is an AWESOME athlete, like Rainey. I don't know where we are going to use him yet. He could play TE, FB, OLB, or MLB. We thought Rainey was initially going to be a TE, but then we moved him to LB and now he's back at TE. So I don't want to even speculate that he's going to be a TE yet.

Here are his sophomore highlights.
This guy already plays like a senior.
REally impressed with his blocking at the line of scrimmage.

Needs to sharpen his route running, but he has soft hands, great size, good mobility and his aggressive at the point of a attack.

Whoever gets this guy will get a quality prospect...hope it is us (plus, being from Buford, he knows what it takes to win championships)

I think Rainey caught a deep pass in the Spring game. Looked like a big physical jumbo WR to me. Hope they give him some looks through the air in the fall.
