Things Saquon Barkley Can Jump Over

Saquon Barkley isn’t just one of the nation’s top running backs. After introducing himself to the college football landscape in 2015 with a head-turning hurdle over a poor Buffalo defensive back, Barkley returned to his hurdling ways against the Terrapins for an open-field leap for the ages.

But, defenders aren’t the only obstacles Barkley excels at leaping over. From statues to buildings, Barkley can clear them all. While we haven’t seen the sophomore back actually attempt any of these jumps, I’d bet a hefty sum of money that he accomplished the feat without breaking a sweat.

The Cathedral of Learning at Pitt


Sure, the Cathedral of Learning is no strong safety, but it’s an extremely tall building. Barkley remains unfazed.

Mount Nittany


Just like the sun, Barkley begins his leap in the east and lands in the west.

Saquon Saquon Saquon just jumped over Yeezy.

The Fraser Center


“Look in the sky! Is it a bird? A plane?” No, silly. It’s Saquon Barkley leaping over the Fraser Center to cut the line at Target. Who doesn’t love commercial retail?

Donald Trump’s Wall


Looks like Barkley watched last night’s debate! Trust me, I’d start running too.
