In the junior and senior season, he was awarded the All-Ivy League and selected for the team of the Academic All-Ivy League. In his pro-day training in 2015, Easton weighed in at 6ft 2 3/4, 303 lbs and set the 40 yard strike in 5.12 seconds. His 1.64-second split at the 10-yard mark is very impressive for someone his size. Easton also made 29 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press and recorded a 112-inch long jump.
