Badger Sports 7 v 7…Charles Tapper
DE/TE Charles Tapper is listed at 6'3"/230 and he is all of that. He was ready for a big offseason to help jump start his recruiting process. Already holding an offer from San Diego State, his process received a big boost when he heard from a traditional power recently. "My coached called me down to his office from class the other day and asked if I knew I had an offer," said Tapper. "I said no. He said well Oklahoma wants you to come down and play defensive end for them. I was really surprised." Tapper went on to discuss his feelings about the offer. "It made me feel like a totally different football player. I never imagined getting an Oklahoma football offer. I am really excited and it just makes me want to work even harder." With his size and athletic ability, Tapper is impressing many college coaching staffs. He talks about a few other schools he is hearing from the most. "San Diego State offered me this past week too. I also hear from West Virginia, Maryland, LSU, Penn State and Michigan State. I would like to hear more from Oregon, Auburn and Virginia Tech too" Tapper can play on either side of the ball and he is finding out that the college coaches are undecided if he will play tight end or defensive end. "San Diego State said I could play either for them. West Virginia is undecided. Maryland said I could play either. Oklahoma offered me as defensive end. I don't have a preference, if I can do both I would love to do both." Tapper is ready for the rest of his spring schedule. "I will be going to West Virginia on March 5th for junior day. March 18th I think I am in Las Vegas for another 7 v 7 tournament. Over the summer I will visit a lot of colleges and do one day camps." Tapper talked about what he wants from a program on the next level. "I want to play as a freshman. I want to know the coaches will treat me well if I commit there."
