Texas received a commitment from the 2019 3 star TE, their second TE commitment of the class. Wiley will play QB for the Temple Wildcats this Fall, but he projects to TE in college. He’s a long term project with good size (6-5+) for the position and a good mental eval. His best other offers were Houston and Mizzou. Wiley will redshirt, get thrown in the developmental machine and play his college ball in the 250s.

More importantly, in 2019 Tom Herman will now boast a TE room with as many as six scholarship athletes.

When you have a positional issue, throw numbers and different bodies at it until it goes away and eventually becomes a strength. Wiley is another piece attempting to do just that.
