Next up in our recruiting series for the upcoming season is Skylar Loving-Black, a 6’3 and 220 pound tight end out of San Jose, CA. Loving-Black is a three star, and the highest-rated tight end in Iowa State’s 2019 class according to 247sports.
Loving-Black is coming into a tight end group that has surprisingly developed into an elite one over the past couple seasons. Redshirt sophomore Charlie Kolar and redshirt junior Chase Allen make up one of the best tight end duos in the Big 12. However, after those two, there are no returning players who had any significant snaps at that position.
