14-Year-Old Who Can Deadlift 188kg Is Already Getting Offers From Top American Universities

14-Year-Old Who Can Deadlift 188kg Is Already Getting Offers From Top American Universities

Tyler Parker could be the next big thing in the NFL.

A teenage boy in America is already getting offers from top universities, despite him only being 14.

While Tyler Parker is a few years off getting his drivers license, he looks like he'll have a lot of options to choose from once he finishes high school.

Standing at 6 feet tall and weighing in at 134kg, Tyler's Hudl page says he can bench press 136kg and deadlift an impressive 188kg.

Not only that, but he has also recorded 4.9 second 40-yard dash, which makes him incredibly fast.

The lad is just as impressive hitting the school books as he is his opponents on the field as he has a 3.36 grade point average at the moment, according to his Twitter page.

Brandon Collier, the CEO of PPI, the International Recruiting and Placement Platform for American Football Players, said Tyler 'can be the number one DT (defensive tackle) in the class of 2025'.

Not a bad accolade to have if he can back it up in three years.

Tyler shared a video of him working out and it didn't take long for the footage to go viral on social media as everyone was astounded at his size for just 14 years of age.

Fox Sports Australia claims his social media profile has already caught the attention of some big-name universities and colleges in the United States.

The Arizona Wildcats, Portland State, Incarnate Word and Virginia University of Lynchberg have all reportedly made offers to him, along with Ole Miss, Texas A&M and LSU.

There's no doubt they will all be chomping at the bit to get Parker signed up with them.

Ryan Vidales, a former recruiter for the University of Oregon, said Tyler will certainly be a talking point once he finishes his studies at Santa Margarita Catholic High School, which is jus south of Los Angeles.

Vidales wrote on Twitter: “Tyler Parker is a name that we’ll be talking about for years to come.

“I can’t remember a kid coming out of Orange County with his combination of size, speed, and athleticism at 14 YEARS OLD.

“Can’t wait to catch a game at Santa Margarita this upcoming season!”

Baltimore Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell also described him as a ‘beast’ and has the potential to be ‘special’.

You wouldn't want to be the high school student who has to get tackled by this bloke.
