    AA in San Antonio measurements

    Ht: 5-9.5 Wt: 166
    40 YD Dash: 4.83/4.79/4.79 40 - a little slower than he liked but he made up for it with his shuttle performance
    Shuttle: 4.25 (the fastest in SA)
    University Heights (OH)
    Cleveland Heights
    Cornerback
    Vertical: 32"
    GPA: 3.9
    ACT: 23

    He played last year at Bedford Chanel but has transferred to Cleveland Heights- he is friends with Ted Ginn, Jamario O'Neal and has worked out with some of the current Buckeyes at the Euclid Sports Plant (same place MoC worked out)

    will compete in the 200m, the 4X200, relay, and the 400m at Cleve Hts

    Schools in the Running: Boston College, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Bowling Green

    He favors the Buckeyes and would sign with them if offered- he will go to tOSU Nike and camp at tOSU

    I see his GPA and ACT score are very impressive, which raises this question. I have seen comments in different places that more than a few of this year's top Ohio players have serious grade problems and may not qualify. How serious is the grade issue, or is the grade issue being overblown?

    I guess it depends on who the player is- Ringer might be the highest profile concern- I heard that the situation is not as bad as Ray Williams but he does have alot of work to do so he can qualify.

    I know JT went to see him before signing day and I would think that was one of the topics discussed

    I think Antwon Hight is another big concern- not sure the seriousness of his situation

    Hight is another Ray Williams, probably even worse. Basically no chance he will qualify, because he isn't even trying to improve (supposedly).

    Ringer isn't as bad, and he has a tutor to help improve his academics.

    manningham also has some fairly large academic concerns, but that's not our problem.

    He continues to maintain tOSU as the leader. I guess the bigger question is will we offer? - there is alot DB competition for offers- i certaintly can't see us taking more than 3-4 DB's- with O'neal and probably Myers-White in the fold it will be a tight competition between guys like Harrison, Hampton etc. for the last spot or two

    Holy dig shit! Some OL can run that fast...

    LOL- those results are a little deceiving- the Army Combine results are not the normal inflated results you see everywhere else- it is NFL testing standards

    actually Hampton was middle of the road compared to the other DB's tested

    I'd love to see an OL run 4.79 on the same track with the same timing system.

    I just checked out the link Buckskin86 just provided and at first it looked like Jamario O'Neal was the only kid to run a legit sub-4.5 40 (twice in fact) until I noticed some kid named Michael Ray Garvin. All four of his 40 times (4.45 4.45 4.37 4.40) were faster than the next fastest time (4.47 by O'Neal). A high school kid running a legit sub-4.4 40...damn.

    Mili- good call on Garvin- that is one of the big reasons he beat out Jamario for the combine defensive player MVP

    The knock on Garvin is his size... 5-7.5, 172 is pretty small to play corner in the Big Ten.
