San Miguel is a big running back with power and speed.

Baby Gronk’s performance on the football field has turned the heads of former and current NFL players such as Aqib Talib, Dalvin Cook, Ezekiel Elliot, Dez Bryant, Travis Etienne and Xavien Howard.

Just look at how much bigger and better he is than his competition:

College football recruiting is as competitive as ever. Coaches are looking to get the upper hand by scouting kids as soon as they can audible out of not wanting peas.

San Miguel got ahead of the game and verbally committed to the University of Oregon. This could be a troll, but I think this kid just loves the offense Mario Cristobal is running up in Eugene. The Ducks got a good one.

We’ll see if San Miguel stays true his commitment for the next decade. In the meantime, he’ll be frequenting his favorite wing joint.
