VIDEO: Noah Igbinoghene High School Long Jump Highlights Show Off His Insane Athleticism
By David Hayes
Outside of Auburn Tiger and Miami Dolphin fan pools, 2020 NFL Draft first-round pick Noah Igbinoghene may not be a household name. At least, not yet, that is.
Igbinoghene flew up draft boards leading up this year's draft before ultimately going No. 30 overall to the Dolphins, which may have left some fans questioning just why he made such an enormous leap on draft night.
Well, if his wealth of tape as an SEC starting defender during his time with the Tigers wasn't enough to convince you, just take a look at the kind of athleticism Igbinoghene brought to the table in high school.
Igbinoghene practically took flight on that long jump from his high school track days. And while the official distance of the jump in the video above can't be discerned from this clip alone, Igbinoghene's personal long jump record in high school was an astounding 25-3.5 feet, according to AlabamaRunners MileSplit.
Even though Igbinoghene didn't get to showcase this exact measure of athleticism (long jump) at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine, he did log an impressive 128-inch broad jump and also ran a blazing 4.48-second 40-yard dash.
If you didn't already know about Igbinoghene's potential in Miami, you might want to take note now because this guy has some serious upside.
