    Deandre Smelter from the baseball team is switching to football and will start this fall. He will be on a football scholarship.

    Kid was a freaking beast in high school. Should have been with the football team all along after his injury in baseball his senior year. It will be interesting to see how long it takes him to get into football shape.

    Pretty ironic that he was recruited at Awbarn by Ted Roof

    We don't have a TE position. I think Waller is like 6-5 230 ish. So similar body types, I'm just hoping he can catch and can pick up the offense quicjly

    I know Tech doesn't have TE, I'm just saying his size is that of a TE.

    I think this is very good news for GT. He was a great player in high school. I hope we can see him make some impact.

    If anything... put him on returns on kickoffs. Kid is a beast.

    I played against this kid in High School. The guy took my head off during the playoff game and turned around and struck me out on three 95 mph fastballs. He's an all around athlete so he will thrive wherever he is put. Hope he can add so e depth to the receiver spot.
