Tight End Erik Krommenhoek has signed his letter of intent and faxed it to the USC Trojans today officially making him a Trojan. Krommenhoek is rated as a 3-Star player (out of 5) and 247 sports ranks him as the 22nd best tight end in the country.
Krommenhoek had offers from many teams including the UCLA Bruins, Colorado Buffaloes, Pittsburgh Panthers and more. The 6’ 5.5”, 243 pound prospect is from Monte Vista High School in Danville, California. The Trojans offered Krommenhoek a scholarship back in May and he verbally committed in June.
Krommenhoek will join a roster with other incredibly talented tight ends including: Tyler Petite, Cary Angeline, Alec Hursh, and of course Daniel Imatorbhebhe. Early in the 2016 season Tee Martin did not really use tight ends in the passing game but as Sam Darnold took over at quarterback the tight ends were featured more prominently in the offense. Krommenhoek was the only tight end verbally committed to USC headed into National Signing Day 2017.
“Blocking is certainly one of Krommenhoek's strengths and he should be able to help the Trojan offense in this aspect. He has also displayed good hands on film and will need to work on his route running in college, but Krommenhoek has the potential to be a dual threat tight end.”
