Running Back Ali Alaboody was one of the stars of the combine, running a 4.4 forty, a 4.1 shuttle and posting a 38-inch vertical and 10-4 broad jump. Not just a numbers guy, he caught the ball well in 1-1 drills. Could he be a Laker? Possibly, but if he continues to put up these kinds of numbers, it wouldn't be surprising to see him get a few MAC and maybe Big 10 offers.
His teammate Hassan Amen sat out most of the day with a migraine, but he did do one very important thing. Most scouts questioned his speed, but Amen posted a 4.5 forty to quiet any doubters. He could be a running back, he could be a defensive back, but Amen looks on film to be a guy the Lakers look at.
Their linebacker Abdullah Homayed and defensive tackle Jamal Agemy are also intriguing. Homayed is 6'4, 230, but moved well enough to cover backs in 1-1 drills.
Detroit Southeastern wide receiver William Sturges was cat quick and ran outstanding routes. Having seen him play, I know what he can do in the open field and he would be a great fit with the Lakers. He lacks size which may cause bigger schools to back off, so I wouldn't be surprised to see Sturges be recruited heavily by GVSU.
