Video: OL Recruit Bench Presses 515 Pounds
On National Signing Day this February 5th, Olathe (KS) South High School offensive lineman Braden Smith will choose between TCU, Texas A&M, Auburn and Notre Dame. Whoever lands his services will be getting someone who is very, very strong.
How strong, you may ask? Strong enough to do three reps of 515 pounds on the bench press, as evidenced by a video posted by Olathe South head coach Jeff Gourley last week.
The scary thing is that Smith - the 50th overall recruit in the country according to Rivals.com - didn’t look overly impressed with himself.
What the heck are they feeding college recruits these days?
