#80 Cody Small
Position: Tight End
Previous College: None
Status: On Scholarship
Don't be fooled by his name — David Cody Small (b. Sept. 16, 1993) is anything but small. A talented young tight end who served as the primary back-up in 2014, Small will compete for the starting nod at tight end in 2015.
Small originally signed with K-State out of high school in 2012, but spent that fall as a part-time student paying his own way — also known as a "grayshirt."
He collected one tackle in the 2013 spring game after an interception. Last spring, he had two catches for 17 yards for the White team, for which he was a starting tight end. He missed this year's spring game with an injury.
Small saw action in three games during the 2014 season, playing against UTEP, Oklahoma State and Kansas, but he did not record any statistics. That means he's a huge, but promising unknown for whomever is quarterback.
He helped Cypress Woods High School to a 9-3 record in 2011 and was listed in VYPE's Top 75 Football Prospects in the northern Houston area at No. 38.
An all-district performer as a junior and senior who also earned All-Houston area honors as a senior, Small was named a "Rising Star" in 2010 by 5ATexasFootball.com at defensive end.
He also was on Cypress Woods’ 7-on-7 team, which reached the semifinals of the Cy Falls Tournament in 2011.
