He talks about how excited he is about the offer. Really good friends with david williams.

I really think we could land this guy.

Here are his highlights.
http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2256738/highlights/85496377

The first thing that jumps out is he is physical. Not much of a threat in the passing game, but it looks like that is the type of TE we are going for now with the recruitment of Markaway and Redmond. Could have a very blue-collar, physical TE core if we land those three guys over the next two cycles.

Sounds like discussions about Justice Cunningham before he proved otherwise.

BTW, I like us recruiting a TE that Wisconsin (or Arkansas) is interested in.

I do too. We can get the skill, speed guys at WR...we need some blue collar roughnecks at TE and in the trenches.

BTW, Arkansas is loading up on TEs this cycle with a bruiser in Austin Cantrell and are favored to get C.J. O'Grady and Will Gragg

Per 247sports (TBS) Wes Mitchell, Upshur described his visit to USC: "I was just in love when I got there"...

I know we added a couple TEs this year but with Busta, Adams, and Owens clearing out over the next 2 years he'll have a great shot to play right away. Would be a great get.

Apparently Upshur and Isaac Nauta were very chatty with each other during the recent Rivals camp. Wouldn't getting the both of them just immediately reload the talent at TE that's probably leaving after Busta, Owens and Adams leave?

I may be mistaken, but isn't he from the same school as David Williams? If so, then that's gotta help!

He's certainly not my ideal tight-end type (measurables and testing), but the raters seem to think he'll develop into a player.

Penn State offered today so don't get your hopes up.

Supposedly he has since deleted the tweet claiming us as his leader.

I wouldn't mind us still trying. This dude has a nasty streak about him. Don't know how he would fair against SEC defensive ends but damn he's mean on the field.
