The former all-state pass catcher for North Carolina private school powerhouse Charlotte Christian High School wasn’t heavily recruited by any major programs. The extent of his exposure is found in highlight videos, such as this one.
Athletically, it’s just starting. Weigel spent 2015 on campus at South Carolina, but only as a student. He walked-on to the Gamecocks before the start of spring drills.
Even though the Gamecocks don’t have a plethora of experience at tight end with the departure of Jerell Adams, it’s not likely we’ll see much of Weigel on the field, if at all. As of now, Weigel is listed behind Hayden Hurst and K.C. Crosby. In all likelihood, he’ll spend most of time with the practice squad in 2016. That said, he has a unique size and speed combination that could help him develop for the future.
