    Its going to be interesting where he ends up because he's already being compared to Mario Williams (I bet everyone knows who that is). He needs to bulk up some more but he is already 6'6" 248-Lbs and can only get stronger from here on out.

    If he has a a motor...and I don't want to get into Mario stuff...I think he can be on his own level. I know high school to college is a jump, etc but the guy seems to like reeking havoc. Some of the stuff was crazy.

    Looks more like Lawrence Taylor to me.

    Let's go Tim Duncan and tank the season he becomes draft eligible.

    Very impressive, but the big question will be his work ethic. Many guys like him don't put in the time in high school and college simply because they don't need to. When you move up a level, the competition is instantly better.

    What will make this kid a Mario Williams is hard work, dedication, and lots of effort.

    His "get-off" at the snap is much quicker than Mario. This dude's got all the potential in the World. It's what he does with it that's most important.

    I didn't even watch half of that video & i saw at least 4 defensive TD's scored by that kid..ridiculous if it was all in the same season. & yes, he looks like he could step on the field & start for a pro team compared to his counterparts. Reminds me of the video of Marcus Dupree in high school from the ESPN 30 for 30 series. The kid is just a down right freak.

    The funny part was the 3rd or 4th time I went through I tried to pay attention to how they were blocking him....doubles, cuts, chipping...it didn't matter, he just ran through it.

    Yeah, he was already contacting them or halfway around them by the time they reacted to the snap of the ball. Other than doubling the opponents in size, his quickness off the ball makes him that much more productive. Especially coming off the edge.

    That was something to see! I thought that lining him up at DT was a waste, but the kid was super productive there as well. The 'man among boys' thing is very real in his case.
