Plano (Texas) standout Sam Tecklenburg stands 6-foot-4 and 260-pounds and is known for his versatility along the trenches. Some see his frame and think offensive tackle, others see him at tight end, and then there is his work at defensive tackle.
He has attracted scholarship offers at all three positions, and some schools have let him know they just want him on their football team. The Nevada Wolfpack are the latest to offer and it is safe to say they have already made a strong impression.
"I had a great conversation with coach Hofher in mid-January and I haven't really heard from him since," Tecklenburg said. "I wasn't expecting it, but he definitely started a good relationship with me in January based off what he said so I'm excited about it."
What position did the Wolfpack have in mind?
"They didn't really talk much about position," Tecklenburg said. "They just said offense or defense which ever I feel like I can fit in best. They said a big reason was because they felt I was the right person for the team and the school outside of football so that meant a lot too that they thought that of me."
Honestly, Tecklenburg is not too worried about his future position either.
"I really don't care at this point," Tecklenburg said. "I just want to play and I'll be happy to fill whatever position it might be that someone offers a scholarship I'm willing to take it at this point. I haven't really decided on which side I want to be honest."
What is he looking for in a future college home?
"I guess it's just wherever I feel I'm the best fit on the team whether it's right away or in the future," Tecklenburg said. "I guess whatever school I fit in from football, academics, and I feel I can live there for four or five years."
At this point he is keeping his options open, but he does believe he could have a better idea about his college future in the near future.
"I think I'm just going to wait until spring football. I think that could potentially be a big time for me. I think maybe by spring football or after I'll have a pretty good idea."
Tecklenburg recently returned from Arkansas' Junior Day , and he has also visited Tulsa and Baylor. On Saturday, he will attend the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour in Dallas, and then he has a couple of college visits on his mind.
"I'm going to try and go back to Baylor over spring break," Teckenburg said. "And I'll maybe call coach Hill from SMU this week and see if I can get up there sometime during spring break."
