After making a name for himself with the Tigers, Prieskorn joined Ole Miss via the NCAA Transfer Portal, where he’s looking to help make the Ole Miss offense more dynamic. Earlier this offseason, Dart elaborated on why he believes the tight end will be a huge addition for the Rebels, and it’s evident the excitement is there.
“He was a massive get for us,” stated Dart, speaking of Prieskorn’s addition. “I think that he’s going to help tremendously in the run game and the pass game. I think it’s going to be super exciting, when we’re going to be able to play a lot in 12-personnel sets with him and [Michael] Trigg, to kind of use Trigg the way he’s more natural to.
“He was a tremendous pickup for us. He’s a really hard worker, and he was one of the top tight ends in the country last year. So I know that for him, he wants to make this be his year, and I think that I could agree — everyone else on staff could agree that he was a huge addition for our team.”
In addition to Dart, Lane Kiffin is also elated to have Prieskorn take the field for Ole Miss in 2023, believing his all-around ability will immensely help the Rebels offense.
“I think he’s a really kind of do-it-all consistent tight end,” explained Kiffin. “You know, when you watched him last year, very big frame, it seems like over time here we’ve kind of had more specialty tight ends. He’s a bigger frame probably, I guess, than anybody we’ve had. So, you know, that makes a difference in blocking at point of attack.
“So we were excited to get him, to add him to our group. A very proven tight end that’s, you know, got NFL measurables and not necessarily like a receiver or a shorter blocker.”
Ole Miss has big dreams in 2023. Caden Prieskorn won’t be the sole reason they achieve them, but his addition will help the Rebels immensely as their offense competes in the SEC. It should be another fun season in Oxford.
Caden Prieskorn played high school football at Lake Orion (Mich.) Fork Union Military, but was not ranked according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.
