why does tech not recruit TE to play WR?

blocking is the primary task in a triple option offense and having a wr with a te type body and mindset would help in that area I know separation from the secondary and breakaway speed would be a concern, but could we not implement more slants and orbit type routes?

example: the slant route nesbitt threw to earls in the wake forest game a few years back.

thanks,

They have offered a few TE's during CPJ's tenure. Just havent landed any.

Of course you can't have all TE's as WR's because then you have no vertical passing threat.

Most recent example is H Walker's nephew from Savannah I think. We offered him this year trying to get him as a WR. He's a TE
