But don't think he's content with that improvement. Tiemann said he thinks he can get down to the high-4.5s. And I wouldn't bet against him.
The Cen-Tex standout also displayed his ability to change directions quickly by posting a 4.31 shuttle and showed plenty of athleticism when he measured a 32-inch vertical.
Tiemann showed a nice start in the strength department by hoisting 185 pounds 15 times, just a few bench reps away from the DE standouts recently highlighted in our second-week of exclusive Texas Nike Camp coverage. The Pflugerville LB regularly stays after school to grab some extra reps in the weightroom and it's paying off as he continues to bulk up and add more muscle/weight to his frame.
Arguably the greatest attribute Tiemann has is his ability to play the game once in the pads. Kid plays with a chip on his shoulder and can crack pass-catchers, blow up running backs and wrinkle quarterbacks as well as any other 'backer in the state.
If you haven't seen tape on this kid or observed a practice, you're missing one heckuva show.
Expect to see him climb up the state rankings in our soon-to-be updated IT Texas Top 100 because the kid can flat out play.
On a side note: As a sophomore, Tiemann started at defensive end and racked up some huge numbers. And the film of the kid as a pass rusher is something else. Kid's got some versatility and could eventually put his hand on the ground if that's where he's asked to play, but for now, we're projecting him as a linebacker.
His lone scholarship offer is from the University of Houston but more interest is right around the corner for this bluechipper. Arkansas is coming on strong and might be the next to pony up.
