Despite his impressive offer list, Austin Bowie’s Elijah Higgins still feels like he has a lot to prove. At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, he’s heard the talk about being a tight end and he’s not having it. That topic is largely a semantic one to me as his best utility is likely as an inside flexed receiver who moves around some. I doubt Jordan Reed cares about his positional designation, but as of now Higgins does care about that perception. Schools are recruiting him at receiver, but when Stanford and its rich tight end tradition comes calling, that makes one wonder.

This week’s Notebook starts in the ATX with a big-time pass-catching target, then we head west to see an elite linebacker with Austin ties, back to Florida for a Texas transfer with LB skills, and finish up in the Fort Worth area with a safety with speed for days. The Recruiting Notebook keeps you in the loop.
