There’s a 67 percent chance that one of the nation’s top tight ends winds up in the Southeastern Conference next season.
Nick Eubanks, a three-star prospect from American Heritage (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), is down to Alabama, Florida and USC, according to a report by Ryan Bartow of 247Sports.com. In October, he told SEC Country that LSU and Oregon were in the mix, too, but it appears that those two schools have been cut.
Eubanks will visit Alabama this weekend and USC on Jan. 22. He has yet to set an official visit to UF, but attended the Florida-Florida State game on Nov. 28 and told SEC Country afterward he planned to return to Gainesville.
Right now, Eubanks is seen as a bigger priority for the Gators than he is at Alabama. Four-star recruit Devin Asiasi is believed to be the top tight end target for the Crimson Tide. At Florida, Eubanks is the priority at his position.
Eubanks is rated as the nation’s No. 14 tight end, according to the 247Sports Composite.
