Hargrave Academy Combine Results

Coaches flocked from across the country to see the kind of talent that <b>Head Coach Robert Prunty</b> had on display at Hargrave Military Academy yesterday, and they did not come away disappointed. On a fast indoor surface, the players at Hargrave ran some blistering 40 times. Players that were previously committed to big Division 1 schools showed why, and some of the unknown players made a name for themselves in front of roughly 200 coaches gathered.

I've made the remark before that Head Coach Robert Prunty may have the best recruiting class in the country every year, and yesterday we again say why.

Committed players like Mico McSwain, Khalif Mitchell, Terry Hunter, and Rodney Giles wowed onlookers with their ability yesterday. McSwain ran a 4.25 on both of the timers' watches, and an Ole Miss coach laughed "Don't even write it down fellas, he's mine."

Mitchell ran three times, each one of them better than the previous time. I think the coaches just liked watching him run.

Giles mentioned after the score that he put up, "I don't know how I did that, I must've been trippin or something." We have him pegged for defensive end, but with the speed he showed, he can definitely play linebacker on the next level.

It was a huge day yesterday, and you will recognize some of the names. Some of the names will make you say "Wow, who is that guy", because after 5 months of three a day practices, drill instructions, early wake up calls, and round the clock study sessions, these players got a chance to show what they can do in front of a huge crowd.

And they put on quite a show.

The 40 Time was run on the basketball court. The players were timed twice, and I have included both times.
Bench Press reps are of 225 unless otherwise noted.
