Cincinnati Combine Report: Hoosier Prospects
Posted May 19, 2008
On Saturday, Under Armour and Scout.com took this year’s combine series to Cincinnati. A number of the Midwest’s top prospects were in attendance, several of whom have received scholarship offers or heavy interest from Indiana. Here is how some of the Hoosier targets fared...
The man of the afternoon was Avon’s
. The 6’4, 230-lb defensive end clocked a blazing 4.43 forty time and followed that up with an equally impressive 4.28 shuttle. Already holding an offer from
, Robinson said he will look south into SEC country, but also reported that the Hoosiers remain one of his top choices.
Another Indianapolis product who did well was
. A 6’0, 205-lb safety from Pike, Tyler ran the fastest forty of the day (4.38) and showed impressive man to man ability in one-on-one drills. Tyler has visited Bloomington already this spring and will be back from camp this summer. A similar performance then should net him an offer.
We were disappointed Merrillville QB
wasn’t able to make the trip, but another top instate signal caller,
was in attendance. He was disappointed with his 4.69 forty time, but that is definitely fast for a quarterback. Luallen also threw the ball well and on-time during drills.
Another player with an Indiana offer was Redford Covenant (MI) wideout
. Several defensive backs made the comment that Chester should be a linebacker with his size and Jamonne used that size to push around cornerbacks who came up to press him. He had a couple of uncharacteristic drops, but he showed toughness and athleticism and could line up on either side of the ball for the Hoosiers.
A second receiver with an offer was Columbus East’s
. Having seen Duwyce before, we knew his route running was strong and his hands were like glue, but yesterday he answered any questions there were about his speed as he ran a 4.44 in the forty. Another receiver, Lawrence North’s
had a fine afternoon, showing good hands and concentration. He can also play defensive back and while he needs to improve route running, he has all the requisite tools to play Big Ten ball.
A running back with who holds a Hoosier offer is Cincinnati Sycamore’s
. He has an impressive build and while he didn’t clock as fast as he hoped, he showed his athleticism and versatility when catching the football.
A couple of instate sleepers on the Hoosier radar showed well: Columbus North OL
and Carmel FB
. Krempel is big and showed decent feet in drills. Freytag is tough and can catch the ball out of the backfield. Another to watch is Pike CB
who turned in a 4.44 forty yard dash.
The underclassmen in Indiana really stepped up and opened some eyes. Plainfield OT
may just be the state’s top junior and he did nothing in Cincinnati to show otherwise. He has excellent feet and a frame he can grow into. Warren Central’s
is tough and has good ball skills. He was praised by the defensive back coaches for his play and Pike WR Dyjaun Lewis is a 6’3, 185-lb athlete who could be the top wide receiver in the state next year.
