LSU commit Ja'Quon Griffin shows off his Scouting Combine strength

Ja’Quon Griffin is a defensive tackle prospect in the Class of 2018 who has committed to LSU.

Griffin, from Rome (Ga.), is listed as 6 foot and 265 pounds.

This week, he posted a video of him bench-pressing 225 pounds 24 times and noted that he was “just warming up.”

Of note, 225 pounds is the standard for the NFL Scouting Combine. Carl Lawson from Auburn did 35 reps of 225 at this year’s combine, No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett, of Texas A&M, and Washington’s Elijah Qualls each did 33. About half the group of D-linemen did fewer than Griffin’s 24.

But those are men after time in a college weight program. Griffin is going to a be a high school senior. Imagine how much stronger he will get some time in Baton Rouge.
