Ian Taubler was one of the best tight ends at the Passing Down 7-on-7 tournament this past weekend in Northern California and that's no surprise because the Fresno (Calif.) Bullard tight end is hearing from Pac-10 schools but is still waiting for his first offer from that conference.
So far, Fresno State and Yale have offered Taubler, a 6-foot-4, 235-pound tight end who is also hearing from Arizona, Cal, Oregon State, Stanford and UCLA. He's looking to get involved with even more Pac-10 teams.
The offer from Fresno State is nice especially since Taubler has been attending the Bulldogs' summer camp but he admitted that Pac-10 schools are definitely more in focus for his recruitment.
"Fresno State gave me an offer a while back because I go to their camp every summer and they gave me an offer there," said Taubler, who could also play defensive end in college. "I'm way more focused on Pac-10 schools right now."
Coming up next for Taubler is a junior day visit to Cal in early March. He is highly interested in the Golden Bears and this will be his second visit in a few months since he was in Berkeley for the Cal-Stanford game.
Although it's probably a long shot especially with so much interest from Pac-10 schools, but another option to consider is Yale since Taubler's brother, Kerr, plays for the Bulldogs.
The older Taubler was a quarterback but has switched to linebacker and it's something to consider for the Bullard standout if Pac-10 schools don't offer. With so much upside, there's a good chance Taubler could pick up more offers especially after the spring and summer camp circuit.
