Sometimes finding a true tight end that can block and is also a threat as a receiver can be tough. If your in the market for one of the South’s best tight end prospects then Montgomery (Ala.) Trinity Presbyterian is a must stop destination.
Though he has no offers 6-foot-4, 235-pound Tommy Trott is receiving interest from several big time programs throughout the southeast.
“Virtually all of the SEC schools are sending me stuff,” said Trott.
“Miami is the one school that has really started to pick up. I have been hearing more from them lately than anyone. I get stuff from them several times a week. I’ve been invited to practices and everything. Virginia and Georgia Tech have also started sending me stuff.”
Trott had an outstanding junior season racking up 63 catches for 1,184 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was split out wide on most occasions as Trinity often employed a 4-wide set. Trott also played fullback in short yardage and goal line situations, rushing 26 times for 97 yards and eight more touchdowns.
“My favorite schools right now are Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Miami, LSU, Ole Miss and Florida. Alabama and Auburn are probably a little bit ahead of the rest of the pack, but I want to check out all the other schools as well. It is just because I grew up around Alabama and Auburn and know a lot about them already.”
Trott, who runs a 4.8 forty yard dash, camped at Alabama, Georgia and Auburn last summer and is planning to attend several mini-camps this summer. He led Trinity to a 15-0 record and Class 4A state championship.
“I went to Alabama’s junior day about two weeks ago. I went to the Mississippi State basketball game. I was pulling for Alabama to win and they had it won, but I just knew they were going to blow the lead and they did. Overall I had a lot of fun and it was a good trip because I got to meet all of their coaches.
I am planning on going to Auburn in a few days to check out a scrimmage. I look forward to meeting their coaches and learning more about their program. I was invited to Auburn and Alabama’s spring game this weekend, but I have a baseball game so I’m not going to either one.”
He is an excellent academic student that carries a 3.5 GPA.
