When a skill player walks in the door at almost three bills, he’s going to draw some attention from the coaching staff.

Tyler Natee has definitely been noticed, but in a good way.

The 280-pound tailback caught the eye of Big Ten Network anchor Dave Revsine, who is in Bloomington on Monday as part of their B1G-wide fall camp tour.

Kevin Wilson offered up quite the comparison of the young back:

Natee actually has Dayne beat in at least one category already. Dayne came into Wisconsin weighing 270 pounds. He then started all four years, won a Heisman Trophy and set a Division I-A record for rushing yards in a career.

So yeah, that’s quite the compliment.

Like Dayne, Natee apparently has some rare lateral quickness for a player of his size. How quick is he? Well, he played quarterback at Trinity High School in Texas.

And he did again on Monday:

Natee was actually listed as the No. 5 fullback in the country coming out of high school. He rushed for over 3,000 yards and nearly nine yards per carry, and he even threw for 1,403 yards and 11 touchdowns.

In all likelihood, Natee will have to wait his turn behind a talented crop of Hoosier tailbacks. But if Monday’s practice was any indication, Wilson won’t be able to keep the mammoth freshman out of his offense for long.

Until Natee gets his shot, feel free to watch his senior year highlight tape:
