Recruiting on the High Plains :: TE Jace Amaro

The staff isn't wasting time as they secured commitment #8 from San Antonio MacArthur tight end Jace Amaro.  That's the good news, the bad news is that I haven't been able to find much, if anything on Amaro.  I think this changes as he starts his senior year, but for now, I have failed you.

The Measurables:

Jace Amaro
Position: TE

The Player Speaks:  Couldn't really find anything on Amaro, other than the fact that his father also played football for Texas Tech, which I did not know.  

The Scouting Report:  If we're simply judging Amaro on his measurables then he's off the charts.  To find a guy that is this big and strong and still runs that fast is pretty amazing. The only thing that concerns me is the fact that Amaro doesn't appear to a huge part of the MacArthur offense (I haven't been able to find total receptions for his high school team, so maybe my assumption that Amaro isn't heavily involved is correct) as he caught 29 passes for 429 yards and 2 touchdowns as a junior and as a sophomore, he caught 25 passes for 266 yards and 3 touchdowns. 

I have the same visions as you, the thought of a Chase Coffman, Martin Rucker, Jermaine Gresham, or Brandon Pettigrew having a positive impact on the offense.  I don't know that I was every in favor of having a tight end in the offense, but I also think that having additional options, and having a couple of blocking tight ends that make it a bit easier to run the ball more effectively around the endzone is a good thing.

Video: No dice.

The 2011 Class:  (What's funny is that I haven't had a space for tight ends before).
