    Heyward-Bey ran the 4th fastest time (4.38) at the UVA Nike- he also had a 4.12 shuttle and 40" vertical
    He is one of the fastest juniors in the country and ran a 6.3 60M which projects a 10.3 100M

    tOSU has shown him alot of interest. They have recruited MD pretty hard- Rico McCoy, Melvin Alaeze, Derrick Williams.

    He names his favorites as Maryland, Alabama, Michigan State, Virginia and Marshall. He has offers from all. tOSU has not offered yet but Darrius would like to hear more from tOSU- insiders premium,0,890254.story?coll=bal-hs-track

    Nice find, Buckskin. Maryland / DC seems to becoming more of a hot-bed for high school football, and I'm glad that OSU is making in-roads there. After being close on some recent top prospects from that area (Victor Abiamiri, Wesley Jefferson, Derrick Harvey), it would be nice to land one this year (Alaeze would be my top choice, but Heyward-Bey is certainly an intriguing prospect with athleticism to spare).

    That kid can fly, for someone his size. It will be interesting with these WR's to see who has an offer after camp time is over.

    ScriptOhio Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

    Just sayin': More professional athletes should have a mother like this:

    Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey credits his mom for saving much of his $35M earnings

    His mom has set him up with a monthly allowance.


    Unlike many pro athletes, Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey has a pretty impressive financial portfolio. But when asked how he has avoided the temptation to spend his millions, Heyward-Bey credits his mom.

    "I get an email [from her] every Tuesday," Heyward-Bey told ESPN. "I can read it over, check it up. I see where the money is going."

    But it’s not like Heyward-Bey’s mom -- Vivian -- isn’t qualified to take on this critical responsibility. She is a certified accountant and receives commission for the work she does for her son.
