Samuel Harvill (b. March 3, 1992) ended up taking a grayshirt last year after tearing his ACL, so this post will serve as a reintroduction of sorts for one of the more impressive players in the 2011 class.

Harvill is as big as an ox (figuratively speaking — although he's supposedly up to 270 pounds now) and quite a bit stronger than one. His max squat is 550 pounds, and so is his max bench.

Harvill set world records in the bench press in the following age groups: 14 and under, 15 and under and 16 years old.

The 14-U record was set March 1, 2007, when Harvill benched 405 pounds — then he did 33 reps at 225 pounds two minutes later. His 15-U record was 505 pounds.

As a freshman, Harvill once banged out 48 reps on the bench at 185 pounds. According to his Rivals.com profile, he's up to 64 reps now.

Harvill, who played both ways, was the second-most important player for Shiloh Christian. He holds the all-time sack record in the state of Arkansas at all levels of high school.

In his four-year career, Harvill had 341 tackles, 95 tackles for loss, 48.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and one interception. And he wears freaking warpaint. See why this is one of my favorite recruits ever?

Best of all, Harvill was one of our first commitments in the class of 2011 and he never wavered. He's enamored of Bill Snyder and he worked hard to recruit other players to K-State.
