Illinois football may be getting a diamond in the rough when it comes to IOL T.J. McMillen. A video was posted on social media of him knocking out 28 reps on a bench press on Thursday evening.

McMillen is a 3-star IOL commit from St. Francis High School in Wheaton, Illinois per the 247Sports Composite. He is from the 2023 class. In the video, he can be seen cruising his way to 28 reps. His teammates slowly started to gather around him to cheer him on as he kept pushing through. It’d be interesting to see how many more reps he could have gotten in if he kept going.

The 6-foot-3, 270 pound offensive lineman could be a force once he gets to Champaign. The video was posted by Gus Ramos, who is the Media Director for the All-American Bowl.
