This guy is committed to Alabama yet?

Rivals hasn't upgraded him to a 5-star yet, so I assume Bama hasn't offered him yet.

The dude doesn't seem to have any speed, but he can sure plow 'em over.  I bet the defenses are scared to try to tackle this guy.

This guy could be a freakish TE

OT or nothing.

I'd love to see him lined up in the Hawg backfield at fullback.  :razorback:

Seriously?

He'd probably be a devastating blocker and a great runner on short yardage situations. It would be like having the "Fridge" from the Bears in the backfield.

Uh...no. He'd get killed. The Fridge was a great athlete who, despite his weight, could dunk a basketball. He played around 330-345 lbs. he was All-AmericAn at Clemson & 1st round pick on the Bears. This kid is a tub of lard. But time will tell. Who is recruiting this kid? any offers?

There is a reason you don't see 400lb running backs, or really many 400lb players at all.  This gimmick may work in high school football, but higher level college players would eat him alive.  I could see 6'10 400, but 6'5 400?  That just means he eats too much...

I remember A&M had a 300+lb running back in the 90's/early 2000s.  He sucked.

I don't really see anything impressive. He runs standing up. He barely moves so his hits likely aren't as tough as a fast, strong back. I'd rather try to tackle this guy than a Jonathon Williams coming through the hole. He was taken down easily by what looked to be sub-160 lb kids one on one. He's just big.

That spin move he's got is legit. I hope the coaches are paying attention and an offer from the Hawgs happens soon.  :razorback:

Also, I love how they point him out in every scene in the video. You know, so you don't miss him.

I was glad they did that, because I was having trouble seeing him before that circle thing cleared it right up for me.  Freak show.  He wouldn't gain a yard in the SEC.

Tulsa had a 300 pound RB last year, remember? Didn't we stop that guy seven straight times on a goal line stand before he finally broke through thanks to that stupid roughing the kicker penalty?

Our 4-8 team did that. Those huge guys are all style over substance.

I'll say the 'Gus Bus' is spanking hank thinking of all the reverses he could run with that fat man (he looks 30 yrs old)...Gus would have him at QB in the Wild-Tiger formation against the Bammers...can you imagine those red helmets of Sabans defense just dotting that guy all over his body on every rush..the only guy we have that would hit him is Philon, and I'd bet Darius could get the fat-frick down
