    Kahlil McKenzie needs no introduction when it comes to Tennessee fans. The son of former Vol legend and current Oakland Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie is the crown jewel of the 2015 recruiting class and has been a fan favorite since he gave his pledge to Vols on July 10th at The Opening – an invitation-only football camp for elite high school players at Nike Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.

    McKenzie has been in the news frequently this year. It started when he was ruled ineligible to play his senior season at Clayton Valley Charter School, but it didn’t end there. Butch Jones sent him a get well soon card that drew some national attention, his willingness to recruit future teammates is second to none and his huge bench press numbers probably shouldn’t be possible for an 18-year old. And if you’ve ever thought about what fighting a Kahlil McKenzie-sized duck would be like…well, you aren’t alone.

    As if all of that wasn’t enough, the 6’3, 354-pound defensive tackle is at it again this week in San Antonio at the U.S. Army All-American Game practices. McKenzie has, once again, been the player drawing the most praise for his performance against the rest of country’s best high school prospects. Not bad for a player who didn’t even get a chance to play his senior season.

    Here’s a quick collection of some of McKenzie’s highlights from his first practice in San Antonio:

    And in case you forgot what McKenzie looked like at The Opening this summer, here’s a couple of videos. It doesn’t appear that much has changed.
