For a D1A Fullback I would say a height of about 5'11-6'2. Going into your freshmen year I would say a weight of about 215-220 at least is expected for a D1 Fullback prospect. Anything 225+ is great, as long as you have an athletic, muscular build.
Most Junior / Senior starters are about 230-250, with the top notch ones usually weighing in at about 245-260.
Players are often Redshirted to get a year of D1 level weight room training / bulking up, supplements, etc to attain D1 level strength/speed.
They might do this if you are slightly smaller than what they would prefer for an active player, if you are exceptionally strong/fit/fast they might not.
Fullbacks are often used on special teams, so speed as well as strength is essential.
I'd say anything 4.90-4.85 and under is a solid 40 time for an incoming freshman D1 Fullback, depending slightly on how big you are. If you are a 5'11 230 tank who runs a 4.9, they will view you better than a 6'1 215 guy running a 4.9 who still needs to bulk up a little bit. 4.75 and below is great, 4.65 and below is elite, again depending on how big you are.
For lifts, better be strong as a Fullback is usually one of the strongest guys on the team and the position relies on power.
I'd say a bench of 300+, squat of 420+, and Deadlift of 475+ would be solid lifts for an incoming D1 Fullback. The position is all about power and explosion.
Good luck and practice, practice, practice. It isn't all about strength. Make sure you GET VIDEO FOOTAGE of yourself and SEND IT to every D1 school you can, fill out their online recruiting questionnaires on the official team website, get good grades. Practice Fullback stuff: such as catching passes, running routes, pass blocking, run blocking, Special Teams techniques/stuff, every little thing. Making a highlight video is very important. Also go to recruiting combines, and summer camps at D1 schools with D1 scouts there if you can.
