Jac'Qawn McRoy, mammoth Oregon Ducks OL commit, catches pass, barrels into endzone: Look

The 6-foot-8, 365-pound offensive lineman converts two-point conversion in ESPN-televised win

Oregon Ducks offensive tackle commit Jac'Qawn McRoy found his way into the endzone as a pass-catcher out of the backfield on Thursday night. 

All 6-foot-8, 365 pounds of him.

The 4-star Clay-Chalkville (Alabama) star caught a pass and rumbled into the endzone for a two-point conversion in front of a national TV audience in ESPN's high school football showcase.

Every point counted, as the Cougars (6-0) dealt Thompson (Alabama) its first loss of the season, 36-33.

McRoy had to do a lot more than coast into the endzone, side-stepping one defender, stiff-arming another and bulling over a third at the goal line.

Watch the play for yourself:

McRoy is a 4-star prospect, the No. 3 offensive tackle in the country, the sixth-rated player from Alabama and the No. 58 recruit nationally in the class of 2024, per 247 Sports.

He committed to Oregon in July after a slate of June visits that included Arkansas, Kentucky, Ole Miss and Oregon. 

Here's what 247 Sports analyst Cooper Petagna had to say about him as a prospect:

"... Possesses a massive frame with limited to no growth potential to add weight to his frame. Flashes good athleticism at the right and left tackle position. ...Displays good foot and body quickness for his size, shows the ability to explode into both his run and pass sets. Has a tendency to play a little high off the line of scrimmage but overcompensates with size and frame. More of a leaner at the point of attack but flashes some power in his hands and ability to naturally move defenders off the line of scrimmage. Shows the ability to play in space at the second level and doesn’t appear to be limited to only playing in a power scheme at the next level. Reactionary athlete that bends well for his size and possesses some quick twitch traits in the upper and lower body. ...Although he will need some physical and technical refinement at the next level, McRoy possesses a combination of size and athleticism at the right tackle position that is certain to excel at the next level."

Entering the Alabama high school showdown, all eyes were on freshman quarterback phenom Trent Searborn and the Warriors, who received an honorable mention in the SBLive/Sports Illustrated Power 25.
