CU will use a lot of 2 Tight End sets. After Deehan graduates in a few months, that leaves only one true Tight End left in the program, #88 Slavin, who is an unproven Frosh. Don't worry about Thornton or the new big WR playing tight end. They are more hybrids who do a lot of motion stuff and are really WR's. Cordary Clark (or is it Allen) is practicing there now, but he's a FB. He's not tall enough to be an ideal TE. No need to redshirt. We didn't take a single Tight end in 2011. If you are a true TE with designs on playing in the league, come to CU and you will have a lot of playing time. Your head coach just left the NFL to come here. He coached a couple guys in the league you may have heard of, one by the name of Tony Gonzalez. This is one of the thinnest positions on the team and also one of the best places to be in this offense. A real offense, like they play at the next level. Not a gimmicky offense played by nobody at the next level, nope, we are talking the real deal. Seriously, this is a golden opportunity, unlike one I've seen in awhile.
