The first offensive tackle taken in the 2018 NFL Draft, Notre Dame's Mike McGlinchey, stands 6-foot-8 and 309 pounds. Yet even he would look small beside Louisville Olmstead Academy North eighth grader Kiyaunta Goodwin, who attended one of Ohio State's spring practices in early April.

From Bleacher Report's Adam Kramer:

While visiting Ohio State at the age of 13, the assistant coaches marveled at his size. It wasn’t until he pulled out a Ring Pop and began sucking on it unprompted that he revealed his true age.

Goodwin already holds offers from Cincinnati, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville and Western Kentucky — with more certain to come as he moves to the high school level.
