Could JJ Watt leap Lady Gaga and Kourtney Kardashian?

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Jul 18, 2013

MADISON - It seems as if UW-Madison not only taught JJ Watt a little bit about football, but about a big vertical leap.

Check out video in our media gallery that shows Watt, now a Houston Texans defensive lineman, leaping 59.5 inches onto a box.

That means Watt, at a listed 288 lbs., has enough hops to potentially leapfrog five-foot-ish celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian and Lady Gaga.

We'll see if that ever transpires.
