SMU Offers Tyler Lee’s Matthew Weeks
Tyler Lee head football coach Darrell Piske sees a lot of potential in 2015 prospect Matthew Weeks. Apparently so does SMU.
The Mustangs offered the 6-foot-5, 265-pounder Tuesday, according to PonyStampede.com.
Weeks played tight end as a sophomore but will move further inside as his football career continues. Piske said he’ll play left tackle this fall during his junior season.
“Everybody knows who he is, Oklahoma and all those guys. They’re gonna wait and probably see him play O-line before they do anything,” Piske said. “Most of them know they’re probably not going to get a shot at him. If he reaches his potential, he’ll be big-time somewhere.”
Weeks is rehabbing a knee injury, so he’s missing regular spring football drills. But Piske said Weeks will work on building strength while he watches from the sidelines.
He also said Weeks has the family pedigree to be a high-caliber offensive lineman.
“He’s just had his meniscus cleaned up. He’s just lifting and watching at practice,” Piske said. “He’s not going to go through spring ball, but we’ll start running here in a couple weeks. Before he’s done, he has a chance to be really good. His uncle, his mother’s brother, is the Ravens’ line coach.”
A couple of other names to remember for Lee are 2014 defensive lineman Triston Taylor (6-1, 255) and 2016 running back Tavon “Smiley” Wesley (5-11, 185).
