Syracuse tight end Nick Provo just concluded his career with the Orange this past season. After a one-year hiatus this coming season, the Provo name will once again be roaming the field in the Carrier Dome.
Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage School three-star fullback Tyler Provo decided to commit to his long-time leader on Tuesday. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound prospect who can be utilized as a fullback, H-back, or tight end, says continuing the family legacy played into his decision to commit.
"A lot," Provo said when asked if it was meaningful to play at the same place as his aforementioned brother.
That wasn't the only reason why Provo opted to make his commitment. He contributed the decision in part to the relationship he built with a key assistant on Doug Marrone's staff.
"I love Coach (Nathaniel) Hackett," Provo said. "He is a great coach. I feel like I can do big things at Syracuse with him there."
Provo, who also held offers Boston College, Florida International, Louisville, and UCF, is firm in his commitment and unlikely to look around.
"I think I'm done," Provo said.
As a junior, Provo proved to be a key blocker for American Heritage's stout rushing attack that helped them earn a state championship.
