    He should do that a lot more, because who cares that it would be against NCAA rules.

    Tucker flying out to visit a recruit is against the rules?

    Head coaches are limited to one home visit per recruit. Assistants have no such restrictions. Typically, that is reserved for "closing".

    Yes. Head coaches can only do one in home visit per recruit and you are correct that it is normally saved to the end. A correction in that Assistants may only contact a student-athlete in person six times off campus. There are a whole load of other rules about silent periods in which no contact is allowed, evaluation periods when coaches can go watch but not communicate with the student-athlete, and contact periods in which full communication can take place.

    Also some provisions for contact at camps, contact at the student-athletes school through the HS coach or AD, etc.

    In short, there is nothing short about the rule book. I think in a lot of cases the idea of saving the HC home visit till "closing" results in it being too late.

    If you have a HC who is able to sell a program use that to get kids focused on you instead of getting lost in the crowd.

    And to think, I thought it isn’t allowed for a coach to talk about recruits by name.

    Looks like 247 re-evaluated him as a TE instead of WR and now has him at 88 grade instead of the 82; pretty big jump. Also picked up at 3* rating from ESPN and Rivals. I would expect his composite to move up some more as soon as Rivals gets him as a TE.

    Wonder if that 6'5"/231 proves to be accurate this weekend. If so, would suggest he will be ready contribute day one.

    He looks like a guy who could take advantage of our lack of an established TE and step right in.

    Wonder if Buff fans would actually understand what is happening if we saw the offense using a TE as a weapon, it's been so long.

    TE is an unusual position on development. Like with OL, they really come into their own as fully-developed upperclassmen. But with that, the guys who have good receiving skills can also be immediate impact guys as young players. The thing I really like about Fauria as a TE prospect is that he's basically playing WR in high school but has the frame to get to the weight over time that some of our OLs played at last season.

    Is he a willing and able blocker and what will his transition be like from split out in a 2 point stance to in-line with his hand in the dirt? Those are the two main questions I have, but am obviously excited about his potential.

    Daniel Graham and Christian Fauria were great TEs right out of high school, but on balance, yes - it’s probably the hardest position to project at the college level. Very few high schools use the tight end for anything other than an extra blocker.

    Just watched his highlights. He has the willingness to block and already has TE speed.

    Should be a consensus 4* with an offer list and measurables like that.

    Yeah. I know 247 moved him to an 88, rivals still has him listed as a wide receiver though and hasn’t moved his rating.

    They’re waiting for him to gain a few sizes.

    I’ve always wondered why the thinnest players on the team are called wide receivers.
