Lower Dauphine (PA) HS tight end Trey Klock has trimmed his list down to five schools and is set to make a decision this Sunday. The 6-foot-4, 260 pound tight end from Hummelstown, Pennsylvania was down to four schools -- Boston College, Rutgers, Syracuse and Temple -- before Georgia Tech jumped into the mix with an offer at the end of last month.

Klock told 247 Sports that he'll make his college decision this Sunday ($).

"I plan on having friends and family over to swim and have a cookout and then announce in front of them," said Klock. "I'm not 100% sure that Sunday will be the day I make my decision, but I'm still planning on it."

The 3* rated TE according to Rivals claims offers from a total of nine Division I-A schools. In addition to his five finalists, Klock claims offers Connecticut, Florida Atlantic, Massachusetts and Western Michigan. Local I-AA schools Bucknell, Colgate and Lafayette have also offered.

At 6-foot-4, 260, Klock is a little larger than your average tight end so he's also getting interest on the defensive side of the ball. Georgia Tech is supposedly recruiting him as a defensive end. Most other schools, including BC, are recruiting him at tight end, his preferred position. Klock has the frame to be a big presence in the Eagles' run game as a blocking tight end, but also possesses good hands to run routes.

247Sports' Crystal Ball predicts Klock to BC, with the program up to 13-for-13 in the poll predictions. Klock is good friends with fellow Eagles commit Christian Lezzer (Clearfield, PA), who hopes to get Klock to #BeADude.
