EACH YEAR, prior to releasing my list of the Midlands top 25 high school football players, I start with position rankings. Today, we look at tight ends.
At the top of this list is rising junior Will Register from Chapin. I predicted this young man would be a major Division I prospect after seeing him his freshman year, and the offers now are rolling in.
Eric Weber of Blythewood is the top senior tight end in the Midlands.
Brookland-Cayce’s Keyshawn James is the sleeper of this group. A starter at linebacker for the Bearcats, James has worked at tight end sparingly in games and in camps in the offseason and has a chance at being one of the state’s best at the position if he can get the reps.
Here are my top tight ends in the Midlands.
1. Will Register, Chapin, junior
2. Eric Weber, Blythewood, senior
3. Alec Spooner, Airport, senior
4. Phillip Holliday, A.C. Flora, senior
5. Tyler Hosey, Westwood, senior
6. Keyshawn James, Brookland-Cayce, senior
7. Garrison Moore, Ben Lippen, senior
8. Bryson Cannon, Dutch Fork, junior
9. Matthew Anderson, Richland Northeast, senior
