Not Wolverines or Spartans, but still worth monitoring

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.
