I remember watching this guy in the discus final of Lonon 2012 hoping he would win and they were talking about how he didn't know if he was going to pursue a career in football or not. Well he is.
He just participated in the regional combine. This kid is a freak.

10'5 broad jump
So his story is he played rugby until about 18, but he wanted to do discus. After two years of training he was in the final of the London 2012 Olympics (at only 20 years old). Now he's done that, he's decided he wants to play football! He's always had an interest in the game, but has only recently chosen to act on it.
If Ziggy Ansah can do it, Okoye can too. And he has the work ethic to go along with his amazing physical attributes. Apparently there's a possibility he gets drafted.
