Honest -- immediately after the camp Don and I scooted to Starbucks to write up our story, then to the nearest hotel with high speed internet to post it for you. We had no idea that (finally!) Student Sports would follow our 'expert-lead' regarding a Nike Camp MVP. Here are some posted stats for U-M's recruits.
Wide receiver Cameron Colvin from Concord De La Salle: 6-1, 185 lbs., 4.31 in the 40, 3.85 sec. shuttle, 32.4 inch vertical, 13 bench press reps (disappointed, he said he shoulder was bothering him a little).
Wide receiver (and U-M commitment) Morgan Trent from Orchard Lake St. Mary's: 6-1, 180 lbs., 4.41 in the 40 (I timed his 40, he was disappointed), 3.88 shuttle, 35.3 inch vertical, 15 bench press reps.
Wide Receiver Lavelle Hawkins from Stockton Edison: 5-11, 165 lbs., 4.41 in the 40 (he ran no shuttle and did no vertical jump).
Running back Jackie Bates from Concord De La Salle: no height-weight stats yet (he'll measure 5-9 1/2 I'd say, and 185-190 lbs.), but he had a 4.35 in the 40, a 4.09 in the shuttle, a 38.6 inch vertical (the day's best) , and 19 bench press reps.
Defensive back Willie Glasper from Concord De La Salle: 5-11, 170 lbs., 4.34 in the 40, 3.83 sec. shuttle, 34.2 inch vertical, 16 bench press reps.
Here's another name: Defensive limeman Phillip Mbakagu from Hayward, Calif. He looked 6-2 1/2, 260 lbs. to me, and had 32 bench press reps.
