Georgia Tech Football: Newbies to Watch For - OL Trey Klock

New, comments

Our "Newbies to Watch For " series continues with a kid who played multiple positions in high school and could do the same for the Yellow Jackets.

The Tight End position is usually at dead end for kids looking to play for Paul Johnson and his spread option offense but when you're a little more flexible, he can see your true potential and find somewhere for you to play. I truly believe at 6'4, 260 lbs Trey Klock will not have a problem getting on the field.

Trey was coached by his father, Rob Klock, at Lower Dauphin High School in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania where he played tight end, offensive line, defensive end, defensive tackle, and even quaterback. In his senior season, Klock recorded 86 tackles, 21 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, one interception, one blocked field goal, and five fumble recoveries. He also had 10 receptions for 112 yards and 2 touchdowns while playing tight end. I love the fact that Klock played tight end in High School because this adds another element to this offense. When you watch Klock on film you see a versatile athlete; he's blocking defensive ends and putting them to the ground and also catching passes on a slant route or a screen play.

I could see Trey playing both sides of the ball, but with his frame, he would be a great asset on the defensive line considering the lack of depth Tech has at the moment. This young man has the potential to make a huge impact for Georgia Tech. It remains to be seen if he will contribute this season or if he takes a red shirt. Either way, he will only get stronger and will grow into the role that is set for him.

Trey was apart of the 2014 recruiting class. He had offers from Boston College, Syracuse, Connecticut, and Rutgers just to name a few.

What do you say about Trey Klock? Do you see him as an offensive linemen and occasionally making catches down the sidelines or is his future playing for Ted Roof's 4-2-5 scheme? Are you excited on what Klock brings to the team?
