Safety Greg Hinds (Aub. Nike stats: 6-1, 210 lbs. ,27.4 inch vertical jump … 4.5 in the 40, 305 lb. bench press, 30 inch vertical jump, 16 ACT) from Southaven, Miss. is visiting Michigan. We reached him for his '411'.
Hi Greg. You have a Michigan visit scheduled?
"Yeah. The November 22 weekend, for the Ohio State game."
You've not been to Michigan before, isn't that right?
"Right. I'm interested to see what it's like up there, the weather and all."
Where else are you visiting?
"I've been to Mississippi State, for an unofficial visit. I'm going to take official visits to Auburn, Mississippi State, Alabama and Tennessee."
What are you playing this year?
"Safety on defense, and running back on offense."
What is Michigan talking about you playing?
"Safety mainly ... Coach Jackson is Michigan's running back coach, and he's talking some about me playing running back as well."
You were a big back when I talked to you at the Auburn Nike Camp. I see you're up to 6-2, 220 now? That's getting to be linebacker size!
"Well, we'll see when the time comes."
Southaven is 4-2 so far this season, and as a running back Hinds has rushed for about 500 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Note: Hinds is a 'headhunter' type who even at the Auburn Nike Camp reminded me of Ian Gold ... He is underrated, and didn't get to fully 'show his stuff' at the Auburn Nike Camp because the camp was cut short by a thunderstorm.
