Should I take the recon contract or another route to recon?

I have heard of a UZ contract and a HZ contract, what’s the difference? (My recruiter doesn’t have a clue what a UZ is)

Does size matter? (I’m 5’7”, 130 lbs)

What’s a good PFT? (I got 72 push-ups, 84 crunches in 2 min, 19 pull-ups and a 19:28 3 mile.)

Am I physically able to do recon?

I’m still a senior in high school and I’m lost and deciding on 3 contracts right now. I have an Aircraft Electrician contract (BA I believe) as of right now, but I have no interest in that field. I’m now deciding on doing a recon contract (HZ) or the security forces contract (UV) but I’ve heard bad things about security forces. I have always wanted to do recon but I’m worried I won’t be physically fit. I do have a “don’t quit mentality” so I am certain I can do it.

Any opinions or tips?

UZ no longer exists it’s HZ and if you want Recon get the Recon Contract continue to workout and be ready to ship it’s simple
