Penn State holds pro day at Holuba Hall

The Penn State Nittany Lions ran their pro day out of Holuba Hall in front of 22 teams. The interesting quirk about Holuba Hall is the athletes were able to run the 40-yard dash on a slight decline, allowing for faster times. A total of 14 athletes worked out at the Penn State pro day.

Jordan Hill, DL (6-1 5/8, 301) — Hill kept most of the results he posted at the combine, but did run the 40-yard dash and did the broad jump. He posted times of 5.06 and 5.02 seconds in the 40, and recorded a 9-foot-3 broad jump. He also had 30-inch vertical leap, and was worked out by a Penn State lineman coach.

Gerald Hodges, LB (6-1 1/2, 233) — The linebacker also opted to do only select drills. Hodges posted a 35-inch vertical, a 4.29 short shuttle and ran the three-cone drill in 7.27 seconds.

Michael Mauti, LB (6-1 3/4, 240) — Mauti’s pro day was limited by a prior injury. The linebacker, dealing with an injured left anterior cruciate ligament, was only weighed and measured.

Matt Stankiewitch, OL (6-2 3/4, 299) — Stankiewitch was weighed and measure and only did the broad jump. He recorded a jump of 8-foot-2.

Matt McGloin, QB (6 7/8, 207) — The Nittany Lions quarterback wasn’t at the NFL Scouting Combine, so he opted to participate in all of the drills, save for the strength lifts. He ran 4.89 and 4.92 seconds in the 40-yard dash. McGloin registered a 28-inch vertical jump, 9-foot broad jump, 4.29 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.00 seconds in the three-cone drill. He was worked out by a Penn State QB coach.

Stephon Morris, CB (5-8, 188) — Morris ran the 40-yard dash three times, posting times of 4.35, 4.40 and 4.39 seconds, but unfortunately injured his right hamstring on the last attempt. He didn’t do any other running drills that day, but did register a 35-1/2-inch vertical and a 10-foot broad jump. Morris is one of those players that will be coveted in the later rounds based on his straight-line speed.
