    I play WR

    Its cool I know its going to be tough to make the squad. Its not something I been playing on doing, I have something backed up but recently I been wanting to get back on the field.

    You can get away with being 5'9" as a college WR, but not 135 pounds.

    You'd have to gain about 50 pounds to even be looked at, and in a year, that's not going to happen without some serious hormone therapy if you know what I mean. Even then, 50 pounds in a year isn't doable.

    Like Ultra said, you're gonna have to do the juco route, and really stand out there.


    Best of luck to you, let us know if you make the squad. I'll most definitely be at the game next year.


    5' 9" 185 pounds?
    Seems pretty heavy for that short of a frame.

    I don't think he would have to gain THAT much weight to play college ball.


    35 pounds duvoldomo
    (170) ....you can handle that.
    ;D

    EDIT:
    Doing a quick 30 seconds of research shows that most shorter NFL receivers (5' 9") do weight in around 185 pounds.


    Couldn't you get by a little smaller than that though as a college freshman?
    He said college, not the NFL.

    Do a search to see how many collge players are 5'9".
    I told him that he could get by at 5'9" in college.

    But not at 135 pounds.

    Re: Anyone played college football?

    Chris Rainey was only in the 150 pound range coming out of high school and was a 5 star recruit coming out of high school.

    Most 5'9 skill position guys don't weigh 185 coming out of high school.

    And here is a 5 star recruit this year

    And these are blue chip prospects.

    Did you miss my last sentence?


    I assume there are a lot more college receivers at 5' 9" than NFL ones.
    Hence if you can make it into the NFL at that size, you sure as hell should be able to make it into college - all other factors aside of course.

    What good does researching NFL players do then?
    Read my sentences!

    Re: Anyone played college football?

    i got recruited to play in the CIS (canadian NCAA), no scholorship offer just a training camp spot however, but i had to bow out due to very mesed up wrists.

    you could always try out for the CIS if you're up for an adventure
