    Nesbitt was curling 350 lbs with each arm. Man our QB recruits under CPJ are really going down hill...

    Didn't specify units. Could very well be tons...... (or grams)

    Yeap. I maxed out @ 315 in HS and that was at my strongest. I was a good bit heavier than MJ too. Im impressed more and more with this kid.

    I'll be the first guy to downplay the overall importance of a bench press max, especially having taught weight training in schools. However, what this shows is that this kid is just overall STRONG. And he'll probably walk right in and be the most physical QB we have. I love it!

    I think it shows he's a gym rat (weightroom = gym in this case). We could probably surmise that he is strong all over, especially in qb specific areas. Add that to his reputation that he lives to watch film and his high school coach saying that "nobody will out work him," and I like it a lot.

    Very excited to see what Mr. Jordan brings to us. I think it's great that he's flying somewhat under the radar.

    I didn't think so, but I can see how you could have. I think with the saga of Vad Lee still fresh, most GT fans are not too quick to assign program savior status again.

    I took that to possibly refer to two things - Drummond showed up benching around if not over 400 #s. Shortly thereafter, his bench #s dropped precipitously - a dead giveaway for roids which turned out to be the case. Then, there was DD's unfortunate BWI/BUI incident.

    That's true... That being said, Daniel Drummond is a great kid from a great family... He went through a lot while he was at Tech yet never stopped giving the team his all.
