Video: Arkansas RB Kody Walker squats 700 pounds

The Arkansas Razorbacks need a talented running back to step up for them this year after losing Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams to the NFL after the 2015 season. It looks like sixth-year senior Kody Walker is ready to do that for them this year.

Walker joined a pretty elite club Thursday night when he impressively squatted 700 pounds with a crowd of Razorback teammates cheering him on. He did so in an eerie setting under the lights with a red hue hovering over the squat rack.

700 pound club for @KWalkBeastMode!👊💪

This just goes to show how freakishly strong Walker is and he could be a big piece for them going into the 2016 season. He will likely compete with Rawleigh Williams III, who is returning from a dangerous neck injury, for the starting job this year.

In 2015, Kody Walker rushed for 394 yards and six touchdowns and it looks like he could go for even more heading into the 2016 season.
