Clemson center Ryan Norton was ranked #20 on Wednesday afternoon in Fox Sport's Top 25 Freaks in College Football for 2015.

"The Tigers starting center turned heads recently when a video of him bench-pressing 640 pounds (with a little bit of help from his spotter) went online," senior writer Bruce Feldman said. "Norton also did that super-heavy bench with the aid of a “shoulder-saver” as Tiger strength coach Joey Batson explained, which helps the linemen work on their six to eight-inch punch without much risk of injury. The 290-pound Norton, who arrived at Clemson weighing around 240, is a 500-pound bencher the coach said, adding Norton also has put up 225 as many as 37 times."

Norton, who has made the ACC Academic Honor Roll each of the last two years, is the most experience offensive player on the Clemson team with 38 games played, including 24 as a starter. He has played 1,855 plays over those 38 games. That includes 737 snaps in 13 games, 11 as a starter, in 2014.
