JJ Watt’s reaction to seeing college football look exactly the same is humorous

JJ Watt found his clone. The Cardinals’ defensive end reacted enthusiastically after discovering his looks.

The person in question is Matt Bates, a defensive winger at West Liberty (Virginia) University. According to Random College Athletes’ Twitter account-a good follower-Bates played for the Peak team in 2008-13, which briefly coincided with Watt’s college career. After transferring from Central Michigan, the latter lived in Wisconsin for a year in 2008, and then played for the Badgers for two seasons in 2009 and 2010.

This similarity is definitely obvious-but, as Watt mentioned, it is not perfect:
