    You can't teach size like that! Whoa big boy! Rivals says his only other offer is South Alabama.

    If that height and weight is legit he has to be one if not the biggest kickers in all of football at any level. That being said I could give a crap how big or small he is if he can get the ball in the EZ on kickoffs and make his field goals. Welcome on board.

    I wonder if he kicks and punts?

    Per the ESPN scouting report:

    Updated 10/11/2012

    Ryan is the biggest elite k/p (6'5 265 lbs.) at any level of football. At his first Kohl's camp he was dominant with 80 yard kick offs and 5 second hang-times on his punts.

    With our kicking issues over the last few years.....we should recruit a couple kickers a year.

    Based on the video and the writeup I would bet he is being recruited as a kicker only. If he has the mental ability to handle the increased speed and pressure of the college game he could be a good one because he clearly seems to have the leg strength needed.

    Great news. I have no problem using a scholly on a good kicking prospect, especially if he can also punt.
