In his senior year of high school and still uncommitted, four-star offensive guard Braden Smith already looks more like a larger-than-average college player. A rare teenager without Twitter or Instagram, Smith’s strength went viral anyway when his Olathe (Kan.) South football coach Jeff Gourley posted a video of Smith bench-pressing 515 pounds.

The video, which quickly got picked up by Yahoo Sports, MaxPreps and other sports sites, now has nearly half a million views on YouTube.

According to ESPN, Smith has turned down more than 50 scholarship offers already, and despite attending Alabama’s summer camp, he has narrowed his choices to Auburn, Texas A&M and TCU.

Smith will announce his decision Feb. 5.
