Will the most recent USC commit play tight end or offensive line?
Q: Sam Gilbert said:
Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick stated that he was offered as a tight end rather than as part of the offensive line, where many saw him playing in college. Considering the Trojans depth at TE and lack thereof at OL, do you see him switching positions at some point in time?
A: I admit to being skeptical when I heard USC added ANOTHER tight end. But I spoke to someone within the program who said he would probably end up an offensive lineman.
Now if he does get his wish to play tight end, I will find this decision dubious with the 15-scholarship limit and the Trojans full of tight ends on the current roster. So it is going to be one of those things that does not get settled until Cope-Fitzpatrick actually shows up at USC and starts practicing.
