    Sometimes a quick video clip can say more than 1,000 words on the progress of a player.

    That’s the case with Kahlil McKenzie this fall. The pads haven’t even come on yet and we’re a long way from making final judgements about how players will perform this fall.

    But one thing is 100% certain. McKenzie did a fantastic job reshaping his body in the offseason.

    This is what he looked like as a true freshman last year:

    And here he is in the spring, looking a touch slimmer:

    And then here he is during Tuesday evening’s practice, sprinting through a defensive drill in a way he simply could not have done last year.
