New name at H-back for The Tide

Aaron cochran 140330 2
Class of 2015 Atlanta (Ga.) Mays tight end Aaron Cochran does a little bit of everything for his high school team. He's a tight end, a defensive end and sometimes a key blocker.
With a variety of skill sets, the 6-foot-3, 250-pound prospect has already gathered a number of smaller offers, but is hoping a solid camp season will convince others to pull the trigger. On the top of that list is perennial power Alabama.
"Alabama has been talking to me about playing H-back and I like that idea," Cochran said. "They told me I'm the No. 1 H-back on their board. They want me to come to their camp and see how I am at blocking and how I am running routes."
Of the schools that have currently offered, Cochran said Memphis is making the strongest early pitch.
"I like Memphis," he said. "They've upgraded the facilities there and their weight room is huge. On the field I think I can contribute, they see me as a defensive end."
Cochran said he doesn't have a preference when it comes to playing offense or defense and plans to camp at both positions over the summer.
