Is he a tight end? An offensive lineman? Something else entirely? Jaspar Lott’s future position is a bit of an unknown, but the one thing we do know is that he will make an impact in Funky Town.
A 6’5” athlete with a variable skillset, most expect Lott to eventually find his spot along the offensive line at the collegiate level. He certainly has the size (243 pounds) and strength (his dad is the S&C coach for the Los Angeles Chargers) to be a great OT at TCU, and potentially beyond.
Having starred for Argyle High School at tight end though, he could also catch passes for TCU, or be another great blocking tight end for a program that has used them well through the years.
Having moved to Texas from California a few years ago, Lott has excelled at big time programs in both states, and was a first-team selection for the eagles as a junior. With 17 offers, including Houston, Arkansas, Auburn, Virginia, and Vanderbilt, he had his pick of opportunities, but TCU just felt like home. “I really like Coach P, he’s a great guy. I just felt like it was the type of program we like as a family,” he said. “He’s developed a lot of guys and sent a lot of people to the NFL. It just seems like a great environment at TCU.”
TCU told Lott that they are taking him as an athlete, and he will have chances to compete on the offensive and defensive lines as well as at tight end for TCU.
Wherever he ends up, I have a feeling he will be fun to watch.
