Hasty Showcases Speed at Army Combine

4-Star RB JaMycal Hasty showcased his top end speed at the Army combine, talks offers and U-M.

SAN ANTONIO – 2015 Four-star running back JaMycal Hasty showed why he is one of the more sought after prospects in Texas after a strong performance at the U.S. Army Junior combine earlier this month.

"I feel like I did pretty good," Hasty said. "I'm just a little disappointed in my vertical. Other than that, I think I did pretty good. I came out here and competed. So overall, I had a pretty good day."

At 5-foot-8, 181-pounds, Hasty stars for Longview (Texas) High, where he is coming a strong junior campaign.

"Individually, I think I did pretty good," Hasty recalled. "I didn't have to play a lot to be honest with you, because of leads. I sat a lot of games in the second half. I actually got hurt and was for two whole games. But overall, I think I had a pretty good season. I contributed to my team pretty well."

Rated the No. 22 RB in the latest 2015 Scout.com player rankings, Hasty says there is certain attributes that he brings to the table as multi-purpose back, including 4.4 forty-speed timed at the combine.

"Speed, vision, explosiveness, quickness and just I.Q. of the game," said Hasty on his skill-set.

Currently, Hasty has offers from Texas, Texas Tech, TCU, Texas A&M, Baylor, Houston and Oklahoma State.

As far as what he is looking for in a future program, he said: "Relationship with the coaching staff, the fan base, the atmosphere of the town. How well I fit into the offensive scheme. I want to become a physical therapist."

With most of his interest is coming from the state of Texas, Hasty said there hasn't been much interest from Michigan.

"I have got one piece of mail from Michigan, that's about it," said Hasty.

However, Hasty did admit he would "most definitely" be interested in the Wolverines if they were to show more interest.

"They coming right at you," Hasty said on the Wolverines playing style. "They are not going to trick you, but they are downhill, straight forward. They are pretty balanced running the ball and passing."

And did note that distance wouldn't be a factor.

"Distance don't really matter to me," said Hasty.
