LOOK: Nobody can believe size of Arkansas backup QB Cole Kelley
The Arkansas offense went with The Franchise to pick up some yards against Texas A&M.
Late in the first quarter, Cole Kelley entered and immediately made an impression. Listed at 6-foot-7, 268 yards, Kelley ran for 13 yards to convert a first down, and then made a difference near the goal line. He converted another first down from the Texas A&M seven-yard-line, and then capped the drive with a play-action pass for a touchdown to David Williams.
Kelley, a Lafayette, La. native, redshirted last year after he was a 3-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite. Kelley beat out Ty Storey for the backup quarterback job in the preseason.
Here is a reaction of fans watching Kelley:
Cole Kelley is a GIANT

Question: Is Arkansas' 6-7, 268-pound Cole Kelley, freshman, the biggest QB in captivity?
