Do I have a decent chance of playing D1 Football?
I'm 14 years old in freshman year. I weigh 290 pounds play defensive and o line my height is 5'11 and l will probably end up 6 foot or 6'1. Below are my 40, bench and squat
Squat - 450
Bench - 250
40 yard dash - 4.8
I play for a small program will this affect my chances and if it does how do I improve them?
If you think I can play D1 how should I go about this?
If you think I do have a chance

Personally, I believe that you can benefit from making a position change. Based on your height and weight, I believe that the best fit for you is at middle linebacker. You have the ideal size for a high school freshman middle linebacker.
Remember, the best way to prove yourself is through actions, not words. My best advice for you is to work hard and perform very well in practice every day. In addition, what you need to do during this (and every) offseason is eat healthy, exercise by doing weight lifting, and either jogging or going for a long run every day. If you do these things, you will get faster, stronger, into better shape, and lose some weight, which will greatly improve your chances of being a successful, top notch middle linebacker in high school football next season, who could go on to play college football.
By the way, your chances of getting a scholarship to play college football depend on your performance in football during your senior year of high school. If you perform very well in football next season, you will greatly improve your chances of getting recruited and a scholarship to play for a college football program.

D1 is not only about football, keep your grades high for D1 and protect your body.. No vaping or drinking. Transfer to a better HS if possible if not, just try out for a good team. I wouldn't think about Clemson or Oklahoma, but something like Ohio State or Oregon Ducks, which are still good teams. Ohio State has produced a lot of NFL players.. Michael Thomas, Zeke Elliot, Joey Bosa...

You don't have a 4.8 forty yard dash. You're more than 100 pounds overweight.
A 4.8 would be record-setting for offensive linemen at the NFL Combine. J. J. Watt did the 40 in 4.84, and he plays defense.
