This stays the same as last night's Elite 11 Tryout, except that Mike Hartline went home (he'd attended the Virginia Tech Nike a few weeks earlier).
-- Once again Adam Weber (6-foot-2, 200-pounds) from Minnesota was the top QB performer.
-- Once again, Josh Freeman (6-foot-6, 220-pounds) from Grandville, Missouri, was the best 'looking' QB but not the best performing.
-- Don't forget Isiah Williams, the 6-foot-1 1/2, 200-pound 'athlete' from Chicago Vocational. He told us that the school that have offered him, Iowa, Illinois and Purdue, are all recruiting him as a QB, but he also looks like he'd make a great DB or WR.
-- OSU commitment LB Ross Homan from Coldwater, Ohio. Homan looked 6-foot-0 and 210-pounds.
-- LB Eric Gordon from Traverse City, Mich., West. Looking 6-foot-plus and perhaps 210-pounds, he ran an excellent 4.57 sec. 40 yard dash and had 30 bench press repetitions. If U-M decides to look at more instate kids, he may be one to keep in mind.
-- LB Andrew Trowbridge (5-foot-11, 210-pounds). Trowbridge was the top 'stats' performer overall with a 40 yard dash time of 4.78 secs., 37 bench press reps, a 34.5 inch vertical jump, and a 4.0 sec. shuttle. He is hoping for offers from Michigan and/or Iowa and/or Purdue.
-- LB/DE Jarrell Herring from Detroit Martin Luther King. Herring was 6-foot-2, 235-pounds, and, with a 5.0 sec. 40 yard dash, may have DE as his future.
-- WR Adrian Cannon from Pontiac, Mich. A true 6-2, and 180 lbs., he told us he ran a 4.6 sec. 40 yard dash. For the day he was a sure handed receiver but didn't have a great burst.
-- WR Derek Brighton (5-foot-11 1/2,
175-pounds) from Allen Park, Michigan. Good speed, good hands, but has a somewhat
smallish frame and could use more strength.
-- WR Quinton Patilla from Flint Carmen-Ainesworth. Same size and same comment as for Adrian Cannon. We also watched Quinton at the US Army Combine this past January.
-- DL Aundre Henderson from Louisville, Kent, Manual. Henderson was 6-foot-4 and looked his reported 280 pounds. He has decent mobility but has an out of shape body for a DL.
-- DL Ben Hunderman 6-feet-5, 260-pounds, from Zeeland, Michigan.
-- DL Chris Arthurs from Warrenville Wheaton, Illinois, South. Arthurs was smaller than expected at 6-foot-0, 260-pounds.
-- DB Jovani Chappel, 5-foot-8, 175-pounds, from Dayton, Ohio, Trotwood-Madison. Chappel did not have a real good day in the one-on-one QB-WR-DB drills, having to 'hold' in order to be physical.
-- DB D.D. Hardy, 5-foot-11,
170-pounds, from New Haven, Michigan.
-- OL DeShon Dedrick from Lansing, Mich., Sexton.Though not in great physical shape at 6-foot-3, 340-pounds, he showed good mobility.
-- OL Bryant Nowicki from Bangor, Mich, John Glenn. Nowicki is huge at 6-foot-7, 360-pounds, but not in great physical shape.
-- OL Garrett Whaley from Pinconning, Michigan. Whaley is not in great physical shape at 6-foot-2, 290-pounds.
-- OL Jeff Maddux (6-2 1/2, 290 lbs.) from Monroe, Mich. He is Jim S' #58 OL.
-- OL Ramone Johnson (6-2 1/2, 300 lbs.) from Chicago Morgan Park. He is Jim S' #71 OL.
Because Steve Brown worked out at safety instead of tailback, we did not watch the RB's closely.
