Meet 'Baby Gronk', the 10-year-old kid billed as college football's next big thing
A 10-year-old social media sensation, most commonly known as 'Baby Gronk,' has been billed as college football's 'next big thing' and has even been spotted hanging out with Olivia Dunne, actor Mark Wahlberg and sitting courtside at NBA games.
For most of the past few months, Madden San Miguel has been driven around the most popular college towns in the USA by his father, Jake, to unofficially tour where he might play when he turns 18, participating in youth instructional football camps.
For those who don't know, 'Baby Gronk' is turning into somewhat of a social media influencer, amassing thousands of followers on Instagram.
He's also considered to be noticeably bigger and heavier than most kids his age and uses his large frame to get by opponents, leading his followers to believe that many college football programs across the country are already interested in trying to seriously recruit him.
On Instagram, he's shared pictures of himself posing with ex-NBA star and media personality Shaquille O'Neal, actor and producer Mark Wahlberg, and Olivia Dunne, a college gymnastics star for LSU who's also signed lucrative NIL deals after going viral on social media for her talent and looks.
