6-4, 250 as a freshman. Played on a state champion team, man can that kid block. Gotta wonder if he grows into a OT
That would be my guess. Likely a left tackle covering the QB's blind side by the time he is a freshman at Iowa. Yes, wishful thinking and keeping my fingers crossed that Mac becomes a Hawkeye!

Freshman??! Wow. I was hoping that since we offered him as a Freshman, we would be the first or one of the first to offer. Not so much.

Absolutely a great blocker already! Hopefully, he was a Hawkeye fan growing up, or recruiting him away from Alabama, LSU, Florida, etc... would be nearly impossible. Epenesa recruiting part 2?

At this pace, he'll have bigger arms than Ross Verba had, who IIRC, Fry commented were the biggest guns he'd seen on a college player.

Just remember, the kids who played for Hayden....now have kids of their own. We lost a bit of that during the 60s and 70s to help us in the 90s and 00s. Glad to see it picking back up.

Who can forget the Hilgenburgs who, as a family, used to,play football catch facing away from each other!

I'm not sure, but I think it was stated that Ross may not have been 100% all natural. I think that era was that way though. I remember a roommate o lineman saying that was essentially the case for many. He felt pressure to do so anyway but not by coaches, etc., but by himself just to compete. By graduation, he was a solid 50 pounds lighter.

No first hand info on Ross.

I am really struck by the physique of this freshman compared to the older Fidone. Looks physically like Fidone is the younger, less developed guy!
