The smallest college football player is 4’9 and he plays D1

Meet Jayson Carter of Rice. The 4’9 running back of Rice University made’s smallest football player. A player under 5 foot is crazy small, and he would be the only player in the NFL if he were to eventually make it

Here is what

Jayson Carter, RB, Rice
Particulars: 4-9, 135, Junior
Buzz: Under 5-10? You may make this list, you may not. Under 4-10? You’re a no-brainer. Unlike others listed here, Carter didn’t make a statistical impact for his team last year. But at 4-foot-9, this moment alone was enough for inclusion. His one carry for one yard in a blowout win over UTEP was a victory for sub-5-foot football players everywhere.
