|Awkward High Five FTW!|
TCU has had an awesome string of solid, reliable tight ends over the past decade, but this year the position is a little more in flux. Senior Corey Fuller is big, at 6'6" and 255, but only has four career catches for 65 yards and no scores. Currently, Fuller's best asset might be his porn star mustache. Behind him is freshman Griffin Gilbert (hopefully he's the good football player in the family), who is big, fast, and has receiver like hands, but for whom blocking is still a work in progress. Gilbert was a four star recruit and All-American, and is poised for great things, but it's up for debate how much of him we will see on the field as a true freshmen. Behind the true frosh is Cliff Murphy, a former high school defensive lineman who has converted the offensive side of the ball this season for TCU. Murphy has only appeared in two games for the Frogs, on D, and recorded no stats. Most notable? The guy is 6'4" and weighs 280 pounds. That's a big boy! Redshirt freshman and former QB Dominic Merka currently sits fourth on the depth chart, but if he can block, he will get on the field ahead of Murphy I would imagine. Merka is a great athlete with high end speed for his size, and him and Gilbert could be quite the pair in the coming years.
