Over the course of the game, I would say that specialty players are running several 100 meters. Let's not forget the field is 50 yards wide as well as 100 yards long. I have seen many a 100 meter running gassed halfway through football games.
But, if you want to just look at your 40 times and measure the recruits that way, go for it.
Sorry I forgot but since you want to get serious about it, running from corner to corner of a football field is still only 101.5 meters. I never said anything about a 40. I would rather see a player who can be fast on the football field. training to run a specified distance as fast as you can is one thing, being able to change directions and make quick moves on the field is much more important.
KU has to have the lowest entry requirements in the world. Pierson was basically a non-qualifier at Mizzou. He decommitted, but they didn't want him back, and he somehow ends up at KU. Darrian Miller had serious looks from Iowa, who needed 2 RBs, and they pulled his offer, and no other school other than his initial choice jumped in. There is something going on with these two great recruits. Other than those, their class looks like ours.
If MU didn't want him back then why did they call him and try to get him back? I think Iowa backed off because of the problems they've been having with running backs and Miller has some issues. But if Gill can fix that, he could be a great get. Plus he's already in school and will be there for Spring ball. The entry requirements are the same for ISU and KU. Even with the Kenneth Lynn switch and ignoring KU's 2 4 stars, KU has 6 more 3 star players than ISU. So I don't think the classes look that similar.
