Penn State football player Jayson Oweh is an athletic freak. The redshirt freshman defensive end sat out the 2018 season and now appears ready to come out of the gates swinging.
According to Oweh, he was recently recorded with a ridiculous time in the 40-yard dash.
If Oweh’s claim is to be believed, he clocked a stunning 4.33 seconds.
Oweh is listed as 6-foot-5, 247-pounds. Oweh was a former four-star recruit out of Blair Academy in Blairstown, New Jersey. The defensive lineman chose Penn State over the likes of Alabama, Michigan, and Ohio State, while being listed as the No. 94 overall player in the ESPN 300.
The Spun pointed to previous comments from defensive line coach Shane Spencer, who had nothing but incredible praise for the young pass rusher.
“You’ve got to remember, this is gonna be his fourth year of football. … Right around the (Citrus Bowl) practices, the switch started hitting for him,” Spencer said, via 247 Sports. “And then all of the sudden now you’re talking about a guy that’s (6-5, 250 pounds) running a 4.42 (40-yard dash)… it’s starting to transfer over onto the field.
“He’s a problem off that edge. It’s scary when he comes off that edge. And I’m happy about his progress mentally, too. I think at first he was taking a picture of things. Things were happening and he would take a snapshot of it instead of just going. He’s really taken some big steps.”
