This has to be the most 370-pound football players on one team ever

Holy crap. I can't believe how lean he is for almost 400 pounds. What an interesting prospect. Total freak of nature.

Odogwu squared. ... How the heck does IMG afford so many players on scholarship? This kid has to be full boat or near to it. Do they take out an option on his future professional earnings?

IDGAF Miami needs to have every coach sending him a message every day! He's one of those prospects that, if you land, is an integral piece to a National Championship contender (he can't go a school like Wake Forest and make them a contender). Richt has to make Dunlap, Faalele, and Reed HIGH PRIORITIES.

Football games are won in the trenches and Miami cannot afford having a bad year when it comes to recruiting on the offensive and defensive line, especially considering the style of play Richt is accustomed too.

There is no harm in taking a chance on a guy with the potential this young man has. He is not an overweight 400 pound guy. He is just BIG and athletic. No way you pass on him because he's a "project".

He's new to football and new to the US. So every team has a clean slate in recruiting him.

Favorable factors for Miami:

(a) In the same state as IMG -- can visit campus multiple times and isn't far from the only part of the US he is currently familiar with

(b) Mutliple teammates coming to UM -- Sitkowski and Hightowert on his team currently committed to UM, we're supposed to lead big for Dunlap (fellow OL) and are trending with Evan Neal.

(c) UM currently has multiple athletes from Oceania on the basketball team that he can relate to and connect with -- Vasiljevic, Waardenburg and Deng Gak

Judging by those 2 pass sets in that video he has decent technique already and I don't see any athletic deficiencies that would limit his potential. This could be the next Jonathan Ogden if everything breaks right. If not then he he still looks a lot more functional than some of the other highly rated mammoth linemen in recent years (Zach Banner, Orlando Brown Jr., etc.).

No. Most kids at img aren't on full scholarships. Even the star kids usually paid a portion of the tuition to come.

Got any impression on Faalele as a prospect?
