Bio

Position: Tight End

Previous College: None

Projection: Starter

Status: On Scholarship

Travis Tannahill (b. Feb. 8, 1990) was one of two freshmen in his class to see immediate playing time under Bill Snyder, the other being Braden Wilson. He's basically been one of our top two tight ends ever since.

I was surprised to learn that he never redshirted, but I guess I confused his grayshirt year (2008) with that. While he still has one to use, that obviously won't happen unless he gets injured.

Hopefully, he won't, because Tannahill blossomed as a pass-catching threat last year after only catching two passes in all of 2009. And he's always been a stellar blocker, which is part of the reason Snyder played him so early.

Along with Andre McDonald (and perhaps Zach Trujillo will join the mix this year), he forms one-half of a potent set of bookends that will provide our quarterback with downfield options, a release valve or perhaps just more time to pass.
