SI All-American candidate and current Georgia football commit CJ Washington was recorded power cleaning 355 pounds on Tuesday.
Despite playing outside linebacker in high school, Washington is projected to move away from the line of scrimmage and become an inside linebacker upon his arrival in Athens. And if that doesn't work out, Washington has had conversations with UGA running backs coach Dell McGee about potentially playing that position in college.
The inside linebacker out of Cedartown, Ga., is most notably related to former Bulldogs running back Nick Chubb. Washington is attending the same high school as Chubb once did, Cedartown High School, where he wears the No. 27 in honor of his cousin.
At 6-foot-1, 220 pounds, Washington is on track to be just as big if not bigger than Chubb was when he arrived in Athens as a freshman.
Watch as he power cleans 355 pounds.
Washington was the second player to announce his commitment in the 2022 class behind only Brookwood cornerback Marquis Groves-Killebrew. With the class now up to 12 active commits, Washington has been one of the quiet pillars to the nation's top-ranked recruiting class.
