#CardClass17 continues to build.

Davis (Calif.) Senior HS tight end/H-back Tucker Fisk officially signed with the Stanford Cardinal Wednesday after remaining committed since Stanford’s Junior Day last March.

Fisk, a three-star Stanford legacy (father Jason Fisk played defensive end in Palo Alto before a seven-year career in the NFL), is the less-heralded of the two-man tight end crop as he joins consensus top tight end Colby Parkinson in #CardClass17. Washington State, Washington and UC-Davis were other schools interested in Fisk.

Adding Fisk to the 2017 class gives Stanford a blocking tight end with a towering frame (listed at 6’4” and 265 pounds, and a future dominant blocking presence in the patented “Ogre” package. However, the depth chart is something of a logjam at TE, with five guys already ahead of Fisk on the roster. Though he has decent pass-catching skills, Fisk would be best served working on his in-line blocking (as most of his protections came from the slot receiver position) if he intends on earning playing time early.

From: “2017 Stanford Recruiting: TE Tucker Fisk Chooses to Follow his Father’s Footsteps

“Tucker Fisk is a big tight-end standing at 6-4 and weighing in at 235lbs. Fisk is a versatile tight-end as well because he can both be effective in catching the ball and also blocking. He is a great yards-after-catch receiver because of his toughness and big frame. He is a hard target to bring down due to his size and mass. It takes at least three guys to do such a task. Even when there are three players swarming him, he keeps on churning his feet and pushes the pile for more yards. Fisk doesn't try any shifty moves or anything, but he punishes defenders for trying to tackle him.”
