One of the leaders on Southern Columbia's 2005 Pennsylvania state championship team was running back Henry Hynoski. The big back, who measured 6-2.5, 245 pounds at the Pitt Combine, ran for 2,200 yards (9 yards per carry) and 35 touchdowns (often running behind OL Josh Marks).
At the PItt Combine last Saturday Hynoski ran a 4.85 sec. 40 yard dash on the slow field turf track, and an excellent 4.22 second shuttle. He added a 33-inch vertical jump.
In running drills he definitely looked like a big running back rather than a fullback.
He told GoBlueWolverine, "Pitt and Rutgers have offered me."
Hynoski was an attendee at the Jan. 29 Michigan Junior Day, and told us, "I had a great time at the Junior Day ... I hope to get some more and I hope Michigan is one."
GBW spoke several times during the day with Henry's mom and dad -- his father was a running back at Temple from 1971-75 and played for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Safety Diuante Morrow from Cleveland St. Edwards measured 6-0, 182 pounds and ran a 4.78 second 40 and a 4.22 second shuttle, and he added an excellent 35-inch vertical jump. IN coverage drills, Morrow was solid all day.
He told GBW he has offers from, "Wisconsin and Indiana. Schools I'm hoping to get offers from are Michigan, Ohio State and Iowa."
And then there were the underclassmen.
Sophomore DB/RB Brandon Beachum from Youngstown, Ohio, Cardinal Mooney, Ohio, will be one of the most highly recruited DB's in the Midwest next season. His testables Saturday were so-so: 6-1, 210, a 4.8 40,a 4.31 shuttle and a 29-inch vertical jump. And he worked out at running back at this combine. At the U.S. Army Combine in January he played DB and in the QB-WR-DB drills was one of the top 3-4 DB performers.
