Panthers land Ohio tight end

On the same day Paul Chryst loses a commit, he ads another in 6'4" 240 pound tight end Devon Edwards of Eastmoor Academy in Columbus, OH.  Edwards was not rated highly by recruiting services but held offers from Cincinnati, Nebraska, NC State, West Virginia, Purdue, Kentucky, and Boston College.  Edwards is considered a strong player, and a good blocker, but his athleticism and speed are considered average.  From ESPN:  "Displays enough raw tools to be a contributor at the FBS level, but we feel he needs to develop further to be more than than which he flashes he can." (whatever that means).  It is the third tight end this season, and fourth of the last two seasons, for Chryst.

  1. I like it.

    Im also not sure of Chryst's track-record, but with this kid's size, depending on how he matures, seems like he could eventually be converted into an OLineman.

  2. Rated as a good blocker?

    I approve.
