WATCH: 324-pound Texas A&M commit lines up at RB, rips off 45-yard run
We’re going to say that Texas A&M defensive tackle commit Isaiah Raikes (Richland, NJ) is rather athletic.
The 6-1, 324-pound lineman lined up at running back recently, and he rumbled for an impressive 45 yards. It wasn’t just an awkward run either. He was displaying athleticism, quickness and speed.
Raikes’ team was backed up near their own goal line, and they handed it off to the big man to give the offense more room to work with. Well, it certainly worked.
Raikes shared the video on his own twitter account, including the caption “Position switch.”
