    LSU linebacker Luke Sanders makes the list. Xavier Carter mentioned.

    College Football's Top Workout Freaks

    4. Luke Sanders, LB, LSU: The redshirt sophomore is a name you will hear a lot about this fall, predicts Tiger strength coach Tom Moffitt. "He's kind of a prodigy," says Moffitt. It doesn't hurt that Sanders' dad was a strength coach and he came to Baton Rouge pretty well versed. Sanders arrived weighing about 225 and now goes 242. He clocks a 4.5 in the 40. He can do five reps of one-leg step-ups (onto an 18-inch box) with 242 pounds.

    That is great to hear. Considering he is very tall for a LB, those 225 lbs. just weren't enough to really fill him out. Hopefully, at 242 lbs., he'll be a force.

    But judging from the article, it sounds like he's well on his way. :thumb:

    lsusports.net has the updated 2006 roster and they have Sanders listed as a Junior.
