Show him that pass to Harrington. Must get a FB this cycle!
George Hypolite 2.0
Didn't Hypolite come in as a RB/FB around 240 then grew to like 290 and was a force in the middle for the buffs. After sayin that won't mind having him play FB, in goal line situations, we can have both Nogard and Powell in the game and play smash mouth football.
At first I wondered how he could be 250lbs at 6 feet even, even with those giganitc traps. So I figured it must be massive legs, and unless I counted wrong, that was 495lbs he was squatting... wow, the guy can push a pile...

He's thick as hell. I watched their playoff game last night against Charter Oak. He's 6' at best, but all of 250+. Moves pretty well for his size. He reminded me of Utah's FB, Asiata.
Commit to your OV school today ;)
He may grow into a rabid goldfish II, but let's remember one thing -- Big George came out of hs as a RB/DL. I think the idea all along was to move Hypolite to D.
I'm not saying Powell couldn't do the same thing, but if we are going to a 3/4, or a hybrid version thereof, Powell will prolly need to bulk up to about 3 bills. Reason -- doesn't really have the height and/or wingspan for a 3/4 tackle. If we stay in a 4/3, then go for it all the way.
It seems like there are some limitations here. Either try to bulk him up into a human bull dozer, or hope that he doesn't grow any more and stays a fullback.
We should have listened to Colorado fans.
Dude is a BEAST. We need a tank leading the way for our smaller backs. We saw what asiata was able to do to our linebackers.
Did not commit to Washington this weekend. They're in his top two with Texas A&M, but he's still taking visits. (Sounds like Nebraska's out.)
Powell says his next stop will be to check out his most recent offer.
“I am thinking it’s a possibility that my next trip will be to check out Colorado,” said Powell.
Hell. Yes. This guy is the type of guy I want in the program. Get him out to Boulder and he'll fall in love.
fullback. power football. want.
Hell yes, we need this guy.
