2 Wolverine Recurits Earn MVP honors at Chicago Combine

One of these guys was not a surprise, the other was.

The defensive MVP went to: Mylan "clamps" Hicks a cornerback from Detroit Renaissance. Here are some highlights from his MVP performance:

  • Measured in at over 5"11
  • Ran a 4.49 on a tweaked hamstring
  • Shuttle time at 4.23
  • per Alan Trieu at Scouts: This kid is confident, aggressive and cannot stand giving up completions. He is a competitor and a battler. He came up and pressed several receivers into the ground and into the sideline. His feet are very quick and his makeup speed is good, so that, combined with his physicality really makes him a great all-around package.
  • Current offers from: Syracuse, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Purdue and Michigan

The Offensive MVP went to a 2011 WR recruit from Saginaw, Michigan: DeAnthony Arnett. Getting these awards are harder for younger players but DeAnthony was impressive in Chicago.

  • Ran a 4.51 in the 40 while recovering from a sprained ankle from earlier in the week
  • A 4.32 Shuttle time as well
  • Was smooth and quick out of his breaks
  • Alan from Scouts on DeAnthony: In 1-1s, his route running was impressive and his quickness off the line allowed him to get off the line against some of the more physical defenders. He made a couple of great leaping grabs and drew some oohs and aahhs from the peanut gallery on several double moves where he left his man.
  • Offers: Only one from Michigan. Tennessee, MSU and Wisconsin have shown recent interest.
