Can anyone confirm it?

No....what they list him at may not necessarily be accurate. Happens all the time with heights and weights with college kids. He may be 354...could be lighter could be heavier. Until either the Senior Bowl or Combine we won't have anything concrete.
Like I said right now he is but a 2 down player who has had weight issues. He dropped weight because he knew he would not have played. That does not constitute being not lazy but is does show determination. I do worry about his health with these weight issues and what toll they take on his body especially his knees.
He is big yes and dominant but he may not be so dominant early on in his career, we all know he will face bigger stronger and smarter competition in the NFL. He needs to improve his conditioning and play with a lower pad level as he is too upright. Maybe worth a late 1st round but would wait on passing fair judgment until after we see what happens with his offseason. Right now there are some question marks around him and people are putting too much stock into his size. There may be better prospects out there for the 1 gap 3-4 but let's let the season play out before we decide which basket would be best to put our eggs in.
