If Maryland is deep anywhere, it’s at running back, where Da’rel Scott leads the pack of usual suspects.
But now, from the bowels of training camp depth charts, a new candidate emerges. Look! Up in the sky! It’s Caleb Porzel! Apparently, the dude is so fast that the coaches can’t keep him off the field.
Terps alpha blog Testudo Times cites a couple Twitter feeds noting Porzel’s apparently blinding speed. How fast is he? Well, according to his Scout.com profile, he runs a 4.21 40 time. That is fast. Really fast. Good God, that is fast. To give you a frame of reference, the fastest 40 time at the 2009 NFL combine — turned in by our own Darrius Heyward-Bey, no less — was 4.30.
Here’s hoping he gets in on some kick or punt returns, at least. And in so doing, he shall smite our enemies! Look out, Heisman!
Isn’t training camp the best?
