Before Michigan's football camp this summer none of the Wolverine coaches had heard of 2014 defensive lineman Kenneth Finley Jr. (Muskegon, Mich./Muskegon). But after the first day of camp, a few coaches noticed him. By the second day, Finley had impressed in one-on-ones. And on the third day, when the 6-foot-3, 260-pound Finley clocked 4.8 seconds in the 40-yard dash, every coach wanted to shake his hand.

"Before I went, I worked on my 40 and I blew them away," Finley said. "Everyone was looking at me like, 'How did he run a 4.8? He plays defensive tackle.' But I worked hard at it."

Finley knew he'd have to impress at camp this summer to grab Michigan's attention. It was really the only camp he attended all summer, but he was happy with his performance and the Michigan coaches are still in the picture.
