When Marcus McKethan arrived on Navy Practice Field for North Carolina’s Friday camp, everyone took notice. It’s difficult for a mountainous 6-foot-6, 328-pounder with a 36 ½-inch reach to sneak into any crowd – and that includes a group of offensive linemen.
Despite his massive size, McKethan is very athletic and fluid. As such, he ran the 40-yard dash in 5.3 seconds on Friday, according to IC sources.
UNC offered McKethan in May, but was intrigued to see how he’d perform in camp drills. He exceeded all expectations with his freakish mobility and flexibility. All of the aforementioned attributes – especially his length and mobility – were huge assets during one-on-one drills.
