Barry Valcin gave Les Miles his verbal pledge about six weeks ago to give the Tigers one cover guy and another Texas boy on the Tigers' recruiting board is Mesquite-Horn's Justin Chatman.
Chatman, a 5-11, 170-pounder with 4.4 speed, made a big impression on the scouts in attendance at the Scout.com Combine at Baylor when he posted a 4.4 time in the 40-yard dash.
Sure, recruits will say that they run a 4.4, but rarely does one actually show that type of speed because quite frankly that is absolutely flying. All it takes is a good look at the times guys run at the NFL Combine to see how many run a 4.4 or better and there aren't many.
Chatman is more than just a cover guy though. He is good at coming up and stopping the run which he showed as a junior when he posted 76 tackles and forced two fumbles.
Watch Chatman in action on his highlight reel and see why the Tigers are after the Lonestar standout.
