Michigan and Michigan State may have the dominant college football programs in the state, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t several smaller schools that have a few decent prospects.
Several Michigan schools worked out March 15 indoors on FieldTurf. Take a look at how the two best prospects performed in the event:
Grand Valley State OL Nick McDonald (6-foot-4 1/8, 306 pounds) pulled his hamstring in his first 40-yard dash, which kept him from doing the short shuttle or three-cone drill. He did have a 27-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot, 6-inch broad jump and 27 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds.
Northern Michigan TE Luke Carlson (6-4 1/2, 267) ran a 4.92 and 4.98 in the 40, had a 31 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 6-inch broad jump, a 4.66-second short shuttle, a 7.42-second three-cone drill and 18 bench press reps.
