ColonialsCorner caught up with Robert Morris tight ends coach Pat Shepard recently to get his take on one of the prime position battles in spring camp.
Robert Morris has a large hole to fill with Shadrae King gone, but there are some pieces there at tight end. Shepard offered his thoughts on the tight end position and RMU's approach to the offseason.
You lose a pretty big piece in Shadrae but you have some guys coming back. How do things look right now at tight end?
Cory Nolton, a senior, switched from defensive end to tight end because of depth on the line. What have you seen from him so far?
I would imagine he's okay with blocking because he has that defensive line mentality still.
What's it been like only having three or four guys in camp? That's a lot of reps to spread around, but with some of the guys like D.J. Pearson and Cory, that has to help.
Because of the youth around this team last year, is there a little bit of a sense of excitement around here?
