Sleeping Stars Exposed at Detroit Combine

A number of talented players who are under the recruiting radar were given the chance for exposure at today's ThinkPal Detroit combine. Here are the notable performances and results from the top seniors to be.

Glenn Winston – RB – Detroit Denby
Winston checked in at an impressive 6'1, 213 lbs. He is very well built with very little body fat on him and a strong muscle base. Many in attendance were surprised to learn he was a running back and not a linebacker. Anyone who has seen him play knows he has breakaway speed, but still probably did not expect him to run forties as fast as he did. On a slower grass surface, Winston ripped off a 4.42 on his first run and then a 4.39 on his second run. These times were averages, so he was clearly moving! As for drills, he was a little raw and stiff in his route running, but caught the ball well. He's definitely a name to remember.

DeKarlos Martin – OT – Detroit Kettering
A big big man, the 6'3, 350-lb Martin was called "the best offensive tackle in Detroit" by one of the coaches in attendance. Martin moves well for his size and shows some toughness and tenacity, but he does need to drop a little weight to be more effective as a college player, which he is working hard to do this summer. He will more than likely be a guard in college, but he looks like a legit Division 1 prospet.

Jordan Bass – WR – Detroit Mumford
Bass reports offers from Indiana and Iowa. He also plays safety and could line up there in college as well. He has the size (6'3) and athleticism, he just needs to refine his skills at receiver a little bit, but the raw tools are definitely there.

Kason Dickerson – WR – Detroit Northwestern
We've mentioned Dickerson as an in-state sleeper before and he might not be after today. He has a very solid frame and did a nice job running routes. He lets the ball get to his body a little too much, but he did a nice job in 4-4s getting open and adjusting to passes downfield.

Martez James – QB – Detroit Northwestern
's QB, James has solid size and arm strength. He did a nice job with timing, as he was throwing hitches and outs right on time and hitting receivers as they cut. He needs to get more consistent with his accuracy, but he received a solid grade for his performance today.

Emilio DeFoe – WR – Detroit Northwestern
Another talented Northwestern product, DeFoe wasn't as big or quick as teammate Dickerson, but he was definitely one of the best route runners in attendance and caught everything away from his body with his hands. will have more from Detroit in the coming days including the low down on the incredibly talented underclassman group that attended, more notes on the seniors and full results.
