Tight End, Jeb Blazevich (Freshman)

Another young guy who I did not expect to come in so strong on offense so soon is Blazevich. Everyone had their eye (and rightfully so) on Jay Rome as the team’s number one tight end, but Blazevich showed some serious ups.

I had a feeling this highly recruited tight end would be good, but to already have 230 yards this season with the offense we were already returning…I did not expect that. Look for Blazevich to be a huge playmaker for the Dawgs if they can get to Atlanta in December. I am predicting at least three more touchdowns for the freshman this season. As far as next year, I am looking for a possible 400 plus yards as he develops.

If you have memories of Leonard Pope, Ben Watson and even more recently, Arthur Lynch, then you’re going to enjoy watching Jeb Blazevich for the next few seasons.
