Ohio State's Cade Stover developing into NFL-caliber TE, says head coach Ryan Day
Ohio State head coach Ryan Day feels a sense of pride when it comes to tight end Cade Stover, who Day believes has turned into an NFL-caliber player. Stover – who played some linebacker for the Buckeyes earlier in his career – is locked in as a full-time tight end and looking to develop his game for the next level.
“He’s a tough player and I’m proud of what Cade is becoming for this offense,” Day said via On3 Sports. “He deserves everything he’s getting, he’s earning it all. He’s a weapon for us in the pass game, as you can see, he’s strong, he’s powerful, but he’s also getting after people in the run game.”
Day had high praise for the senior’s versatility.
“You can see that he can split out, he can come back into the backfield, he can line up as a tight end, he gets big in some of the bigger personnels,” Day said. “Anytime you have someone who can do that, that’s what the NFL is looking for. That’s what we’re all looking for, versatile players that can do multiple things.”
Stover is putting together a solid season with 188 yards and 2 touchdowns, making his way onto NFL scout’s radars one game at a time.
Day, Stover and the Buckeyes take on Rutgers this Saturday.
