PHOTO: Kahlil McKenzie’s Size Is A Scary Sight For Opposing SEC Teams

    This photo of Kahlil McKenzie, which puts his incredible size on display, is a scary sight for opposing SEC teams.

    August 6, 2015

    Tennessee freshman Darrell Taylor is a big
    man at 6’4” and 228 pounds. But you wouldn’t be able to tell when Taylor’s standing next to fellow freshman Kahlil McKenzie. That’s because McKenzie checks in at 6’3″ and 327 pounds, and has tree trunks for legs.

    In a picture tweeted out by Patrick Brown of the Chattanooga
    Times Free Press
    , McKenzie’s size is put on full display. 

    The five-star recruit from California was a major signing for
    Butch Jones and the Volunteers during the 2015 recruiting cycle. Coming out of high school he was ranked as the No. 6-overall prospect in the nation by 247Sports.

    The scary thing? McKenzie is just 18 years old and is
    entering his first year in a collegiate weight lifting program. He’ll be putting even more muscle on in the coming years, which is a frightening thought for opposing offensive linemen tasked with stopping him.
