TE Trey Klock commits to Georgia Tech; Wasn’t a Dude

TE Trey Klock has just announced his decision to turn down offers from Boston College, Rutgers, Syracuse and Temple to play for Georgia Tech.

Trey Klock has been one of the more talked about tight end prospects around these parts for multiple reasons. For one, just look at his pure size-6’4, 260 pounds. His prowess as a blocker even had some schools looking at him aa a defensive lineman, most notably Georgia Tech.

However, while he has good hands for the ball, his speed is a bit below average with a 4.9 40 time. ESPN describes Klock as having “marginal ability to create consistent separation from defenders in man coverage. After the catch he’s a big, strong kid who can fight through tackles for extra yards, but displays marginal ability to elude or pull away from would be tacklers.” Klock “doesn’t display dynamic, big-play ability, but a target with strong hands who can help move the chains as a receiving target and with further development contribute best as blocker.”

Honestly, Trey Klock would’ve been a good pickup as Boston College’s 16th commit, but anyways good luck at Georgia Tech and best wishes for the rest of the recruiting season.

The Georgia Tech offer came into Klock’s hands on May 30th, and I guess he liked the school enough to commit to four years there.

Anyways, there are bigger fish to fry and I definitely don’t think we’ve seen the last of Coach Steve Addazio’s recruiting magic.
