Big 12 schools after Florida defender
February, 23, 2010
The top performer at Sunday's Under Armour combine in Davie, Fla. was Ryan Shazier (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./Plantation). The 6-foot-1, 200-pound pass-rushing terror tested off the charts, showing exactly why he is pulling in offers from around the country. Shazier clocked one of the fastest 40-yard dash times of the day at 4.44 and backed it up with a 4.56 pro agility shuttle and a 7.56 L-cone time. He also tied for the best vertical of the day, at 38-inches, and bench pressed 185-pounds 11 times, finishing with the top testing performance of the day. The uber-talented junior has been on the radar in South Florida for a while as a pass-rushing defensive end to the tune of 87 tackles and 19 sacks this season. This spring, he will play linebacker for the South Florida Express 7-on-7 team as he works to transition to the position in preparation for the next level.
