Just your casual 405-pound power clean

NCAA Football: Rose Bowl Game-Penn State vs Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

That Saquon Barkley is a physical freak is not news to many a Penn State fan.

He’s amazed us before with feats such as a 4.33 40-yard dash and a program-record 495-pound squat. The previous record, by the way, was held by current Detroit Lions defensive lineman Anthony Zettel who has about 50 pounds on Barkley and also tackles trees in his spare time.

Well, Barkley was up to his old tricks again on Thursday, power cleaning 405 pounds, a number that would put some linemen to shame.

So, you tell us, what are your expectations for the sensational junior running back this fall?
