    Tim Conner
    All-purpose back / Cornerback
    Cleveland (OH) Glenville
    Height: 5-foot-10.5
    Weight: 179 pounds
    40-yard dash: 4.72 seconds (?)
    Bench reps: 19
    Vertical leap: 26 inches
    Shuttle time: 4.4 seconds
    GPA: 3.0

    Does anyone know much about this kid? I just watched his video on Rivals (mostly at RB), and came away fairly impressed. The 40-time listed above might be incorrect (although it allegedly came from OSU Nike), as he displayed some nice speed. However, he is basically a one-move runner who hits the hole hard and then runs over and through people; his feet are constantly moving and he has great leg drive for a smaller back. Unlike Ted Ginn, who has a long, graceful stride, Conner (or Conners, as Insiders lists him) is a choppy, bullish runner who keeps his feet close to the ground (if you know what I mean). Too bad he isn't 220 lbs, as he is tough and ran well inside. Please post any info on Conner(s), who seems to be flying under the radar right now (although he apparently earned the MVP award for sophomore running backs at the National Combine, and Jeremy Crabtree called him a "Big Ten level recruit" in an article from November of 2003 - Crabtree on Glenville Prospects).

    Stats from '03 Army combine where he was top skill player rated as a RB

    Runningback Tim Conner- 24" vertical, 8' 3.5" Broad jump, 185/12 Bench Press, 1.62 Manual 10 yd dash, 4.86 manual 40 yd dash, 1.79 FAT 10 yd, 2.96 FAT 20 yd, 5.1 FAT 40 yd, 4.49 Pro agility, 7.93 -3 cone test

    I think I remember Duane saying that he was best as a RB but because of his size would probably end up as a DB in college.

    I'm a bit late on this update, but here it is anyway....

    Rivals on Tim Conner (6/17/04)

    Has five offers (Pitt, BG, W. Mich, C. Mich, Akron); camped at Ohio State and Pitt.

    Don't count Conner out - he's a good, versatile athlete (RB and DB), and he's from Glenville.

    Is he a sophmore or junior-to-be? Can't tell by the article.

    Conner will be a senior this year.

    So there is a chance that he will be splitting time with Freddie Lenix this year. I wonder if that will hurt his recruiting?

    rivals premium

    He has roughly 10 offers- he is interested in tOSU, MSU, Pitt etc.. He will take visits and make a decision at the end of the season.

    BIATCHabutuka out of chaos comes playoffs

    both solid players who should do well in the MAC. big congrats.
  10. Didnt a couple of under radar kids from Glenville go to Akron last year. This is kind of suprising to see a Glenville kid go to a Michigan School. :)
