While working on some scouting reports for some future recruiting-related fun, I stumbled upon wide receiver/quarterback/running back/oh my god everyone else on the field is so slow Speedy Noil.
Noil is out of New Orleans and is currently listed at No. 17 on 247Sports for the 2014 class. He’s listed at 5’11 and 175 pounds and his 40-time is somewhere in that 4.4 range. He played a lot of quarterback as a junior, although he projects as a slot receiver—and really so much more—in college.
His 47 touchdowns from a season ago are great and all, but this highlight tape, god damn this highlight tape, is simply fantastic. In particular, this one moment—right at about the 1:43-mark—is worth your utmost attention.
Here is Noil, at his own 33-yard line, celebrating a touchdown. He is 70 yards away and he has his hand up because he knows he’s gone. There was sort of one tackler beyond that line, but LOLOL good luck, buddy.
Here is a very descriptive breakdown of the scene.
The entire highlight is more than worth your time, but take note of this moment.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like it on the football field AND NOW I WANT MORE. SKIP YOUR SENIOR YEAR AND LET’S DO THIS, SIR.
According to 247, Florida, LSU, Texas A&M and USC are the leaders to land him.
No pressure, just endless football porn on the line.
