Default Buffs Fans - Do you know this kid?

My son is up in Colorado right now doing some football camps. He said they got a tour of the CU athletic facilities yesterday and in the locker room, this kid was at the top of the team weightlifting charts in almost every category.

He's 6'8+, over 300, and only 8% body fat? Dang!

I just wondered if he played well for the Buffs, or if he just looks good in a swimsuit.

AT COLORADO: This Season (Jr.)-CU's starting left tackle. Despite his size, he hovers around 8 percent body fat and runs a 4.8 40-yard dash. For spring practice, he was the recipient of the John Wooten Award for outstanding work ethic, and was the Iron Buffalo Award winner among the offensive lineman, given to those at each position who represent hard work, dedication, toughness and total poundage lifted in the weight room.

He's a pre-season all big XII player, and is projected among the tops 30 seniors for the nfl draft. So far, though, he hasn't been great at CU. It may be more of a coaching issue than a talent issue.

300+ and 8% is near professional body builder style. he would have a ripped 6 pack at that weight/%.

guy in the middle i would imagine is around that range:

The guy in the middle falls into at least six of Khan's annoying people at the gym criteria.

I think he started at CU as a tight end, then kept getting bigger, then made a switch to Tackle.

The guy in the middle in this pic is trying to scratch his nose with his thumb nail and that is as close as he can get.

That's a big dude...put pads on him and he's huge. Runs a 4.8...sounds like the perfect LT.

Do you really still believe he has a ding-a-ling percievable to the naked eye? I would think the roids would have taken care of that by now.

Started out at TE, moved to LT. Our offense sucked so bad last year that I just lumped him in with all the other suck. The offensive line as a unit sucked ass most of the year with lil bs teasers at certain points of certain games. But most of the line sucking had nothing to do with talent (they have a ton of talent) but everything to do with coaching and Tawkins and that stupid ass Kiesaw who still couldnt get a play in on time during the last game of the freaking year!

God I can't wait till we get a real coach in here.
