    At his current growth rate, he will be 6'5" when he steps on campus, and 7'1" by the time he leaves for the NFL. Unfortunately for the NFL, he'll be over 8 feet tall by the time his rookie contract expires, and probably won't be able to stand up for very long without medical assistance. Then tragedy will slowly set in as he exceeds 9 feet later in that year and his heart can no longer provide oxygenated blood all the way to his brain. His family will tearfully remove him from life support and try to find an 11 foot long casket a few weeks later, but he will live on in our hearts and trophy cases forever.

    Damn, I hadn't taken the time to extrapolate that, but it appears you are correct. Damn, that is some good SPSU math there

    You can tell he is taller than 6 even or 6-1 in the vids. Even if he is 5-9 like JHam, if he can play like JHam, then ok by me.
    In the vids he looks a lot more like Shawn Jones as far as ht goes and maybe a step slower than Shawn, but at least as good of an arm.

    Not to mention our strength program. He may weigh 500 pounds of pure muscle by the time he graduates.

    Good looking recruit.
    btw--Tobias was used in 3 positions in Sprg (Qb, DB, WR).I think he was in top 3 of "physical skills" test in all three. wow

    Indeed. I have heard that our strength program is specially designed to influence the subjects' bodies to replace bone, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, vital organs and miscellaneous tissue with varying densities of muscle, thus delivering maximum, even beyond maximum, results. Exciting if true.

    Who cares how tall he is. How big is his hands; that's what is important.

    I can verify this. I snapped a pic of one of our OL ( forgot his name). Looks like our strength program is working

    If this kid has a good football mind and eye to read defenses, we will be just fine. His video clearly shows he has the arm and legs to play the physical game.

    I’m going to make the bold prediction they he ends up being our first QB taken in the draft for way too long.

    Hate to compare to Dwag QBs, but since we're fixated on his height:
    Aaron Murray - 6'1"
    Jake Fromm State Farm - 6'2"

    Neither have had issues in an "NFL-based" offense.

    Doesn’t UGA run like 70% of the time or something. Fromm is just a product of all the play action gimmicks they run.

    Do you think his height would be an issue for any offense being run in college football?

    Probably would have been a RB or WR in a more conventional offense.

    No. TiA really believes Tucker will grow to nine feet tall.

    Yes. They are not a pro style offense. In fact, I read an article a few years back that said there are NO college football teams that truly run a pro offense. No college teams have the complexity of a pro route tree.
