He probably could have kept filling out and been 280-290 by his sophomore year.
I have no idea why he preferred playing at 245, because his game isn't a light weight game.
I wonder if he has an issue with gaining weight. Aaron Maybin had the same problem.

He's a late round gamble, but could be one of the biggest steals of the draft if someone can light the fire under his arse. I remember reading somewhere that he regretted the move to SF and was unhappy there. I think that is why he didnt play with purpose, which was a stupid move. I think he's loaded with talent tho and is the definition of a natural athlete. I've liked him for a while now, but wouldn't make the move to the late fifth or sixth round.
2015 Draft Wish List:
1. Kevin White WR
2. Eli Harold OLB/DE
3. Ali Marpet OG
4. Eric Rowe CB
5. Lynden Trail DE
6. Malcolm Brown RB
7. Cameron Clear OT
7. Rory Anderson TE

I hope we take a late round swing at this kid, I really do. Typically I do not like off/on motor guys, but check out what this kid did his freshmen year against good teams, wow.
Now he could be a big head case, but a 5-6 round shot, F-it, why not.
There will be a team who takes him in the 3rd based on potential alone.
Another thing you can't help notice was his pursuit downn field chasing the ball carrier. He didn't appear to have a bad motor, maybe theirs some ND fans on here that can chime in here as to why he really left.
