Texas DE Caleb Bluiett pulled back over to TE

Posted August 24th, 2015


Texas defensive end Caleb Bluiett started working with the tight ends on Monday to help shore up depth, a school spokesman confirmed. Horns247 was the first to report the position change.

Bluiett started his UT career at tight end after leaving Beaumont West Brook. He redshirted as a tight end in 2012, then went over to the defensive side the following spring.

Bluiett ended up going back and forth as a redshirt freshmen until finally sticking with the defense last year. He had 3 1/2 sacks and seven tackles for loss.

The Longhorns are looking to solidify the tight end position after Blake Whiteley suffered a major knee injury that will probably sideline him the entire season. Until Monday, sophomore Andrew Beck was the only tight end on the roster with game experience.
