CHICAGO -- If there were some kind of recipe for putting together the complete tight end, its end result might just be 2014 target Nic Weishar (Chicago/Marist).
Take his history as an offensive lineman (blocking), add his career as a basketball player (hands), his outstanding work in the classroom and film room (mentality), and his size (6-foot-5, 215 pounds) and the outcome is a specimen who has gained interest from top programs across the country.
"I think at his position and for his skills, what he brings to the table -- that's something that schools and teams need," Marist coach Pat Dunne said. "It's a position that you're seeing more and more, even in the NFL and colleges, using that type of tight end -- a guy that can split out or a guy that can have his hand on the ground and block well. It's hard to find those guys."
2014 prospect Nic Weishar has the prototypical size and skill set be be an impact tight end at the next level.
