College football and NFL fans will no doubt recognize the name Tyrone Wheatley Jr., but other than the name, this young prospect doesn't share many similarities with his famous father. Wheatley Jr. is already 6'6, 235-lbs, and plays tight end and defensive end. He's light on his feet and athletic for a big guy. As big as he is now, it's not impossible that he'll grow into an offensive lineman or a defensive tackle. That said, he shows the blocking skills and soft hands to be a big tight end. As young as he is, he could go a number of ways over the next couple years, but what's evident is that his size and athleticism will make him a highly recruited guy.
