2014 College Football Recruits with the Craziest Physical Features
It's a deep sea of prospects available every year on the recruiting trail. They come in all shapes and sizes, so it's not surprising that many have crazy physical features.
Some recruits get the job done by being incredibly large for their position. These prospects are intimidating, big and look great on the hoof. Others are simply faster and more athletic than their opponents, which are still remarkable features.
A defensive end in Texas has the frame of a bodybuilder, while another player in the same state has no athletic limitations. Plus a few players on this list are borderline giants.
Jordan Poland, OT
Jordan Poland has limited experience on the field, but the 4-star prospect should eventually develop into a solid player at USC.
From California, Poland is an offensive tackle who stands nearly 6'7" and weighs a staggering 333 pounds. He's got a huge body that could add additional mass by spending some time in the Trojans' weight room.
Don't be surprised if Poland grows to 6'8" and then tips the scales at more than 340 pounds before he leaves Troy.
Lorenzo Featherston, DE
A crazy physical feature 4-star defensive end Lorenzo Featherston has is his weight. At 6'7", he's a tall and long-limbed athlete who remarkably plays on the defensive edges at around only 220 pounds.
Somehow, the North Carolina prospect doesn't allow himself to get pushed around. Featherson's frame is a blank canvas for a strength and conditioning coach, as he could put on 50-60 pounds in college.
It'll be an upset if he doesn't sign with Clemson.
Jalen Hurd, RB
Committed to Tennessee, Jalen Hurd is a 4-star athlete who is going to play running back in Knoxville. He runs with good speed and quickness, plus he has a good burst through holes.
Yet, here's why he's on a list like this:
Hurd is 6'3" and 230 pounds. Having a player at his size charging through alleys with the ball is a sight to see.
Charles Mosley, DT
Charles Mosley is a 4-star lineman who can play on offense or defense. He could become a terrific space-eating defensive tackle, or work his way into becoming one of the better guards in the SEC at Tennessee.
Mosley certainly has the size to do it, as he is all of 6'5" and 350 pounds. Having rare size and mass like that, along with the great strength Mosley has, can allow anyone to do whatever they want in the trenches.
Look for this big man to be a wrecking ball soon on a field near you.
Frank Iheanacho, WR
Every school wants a big receiver, as having size on the perimeter is always a good thing. However, most receivers who are big are usually slower.
Well, 4-star prospect Frank Iheanacho may be an exception to that trend.
Not only is the Texan 6'7" and 225 pounds, but he also displays quick feet and good speed on the field. Watching Iheanacho play is like watching an oak tree catch passes.
He could weigh 240 pounds before he graduates from college.
Braden Smith, OL
Braden Smith makes this list because his crazy physical feature is his incredible frame. He's the kind of guy who deserves to walk around with his shirt off as much as possible.
At 6'6", although he weighs 290 pounds, Smith doesn't even look close to that mark. He has a flat stomach and long arms and legs, plus the 4-star offensive lineman seems to only have a limited amount of body fat.
It's safe to say Smith looks like a prototypical athlete.
Tony Brown, CB
At 6'0" and 188 pounds, Brown has rare speed and agility, plus he has the strength of a linebacker. There's pretty much nothing he can't do athletically, which is why it's no big shock that Brown is one of the best sprinters in the nation. He also keeps himself in prime condition (look at the picture).
This guy is going to be an All-American in both football and track in college.
Matt Elam, DT
Matt Elam is the kind of player who makes it hard for parents to want their sons to play football. Not that the 4-star defensive tackle does anything wrong, but because he's such a massive and intimidating player.
How would you like to park your car and sit down in the bleachers at a field to see that your son has to play against someone who is 6'6" and 350 pounds?
Oh, and not only is Elam big, but he's also strong, powerful, tough and physical.
A player with his attributes probably should already be playing in college.
Myles Garrett, DE
A 5-star recruit, Myles Garrett has a 5-star frame at 6'4" and 240 pounds. If this football thing doesn't work for him, he'll surely have some options to go into modeling and bodybuilding, among other fields.
Garrett has a body like a Greek god, as it's chiseled like a sculpture. With his impressive frame, it's almost not fair that he has excellent athleticism, strength and speed at his position.
Garrett has endless crazy physical features.
