Pro timing day set for Wednesday

COLUMBIA, S.C. (March 29, 2011) ? Fourteen former Gamecock football players will showcase their skills for the NFL scouts on Wednesday, March 30, in the University of South Carolina?s annual Pro Timing Day.

Those expected to take part in the activities on Wednesday include Ladi Ajiboye, Blake Baxley, Garrett Chisolm, Chris Culliver, Josh Dickerson, Patrick DiMarco, Hutch Eckerson, Tori Gurley, Jarriel King, Spencer Lanning, Brian Maddox, Cliff Matthews, Weslye Saunders and Charles Turner.

The event begins in the weight room at 10 a.m. as the players go through a series of tests and measurements, including a standing broad jump, vertical leap and bench press. The showcase then moves to the Williams-Brice Stadium field where the players are timed in the 40-yard dash, three-cone drill and the shuttle run before wrapping up with individual position drills.

While the testing in the weight room area is off limits to fans and the media, the field portion of the timing day is open to all comers. Fans are asked to sit in the lower west stands of the stadium.

NOTE: Should the field work be moved to the indoor practice facility due to inclimate weather, the work out will be open only to authorized individuals and will be closed to the general public.
