Re: Pro day updates
Another local product who played at Rice is Sam McGuffie.
He transferred back from Michigan.
Here are his notable measurables:
Sam McGuffie RB/WR
Weight: 201 pounds
Bench reps @ 225: 26 times
Broad Jump: 11'2"
40 yard dash: 4.36 seconds
Also, I found some of his numbers at the regional combine (unoffical, of course):
Joseph Duarte @Chronicle_Owls
MT @PlexPerformance: At the Regional Combine at Texans facility Rice's Sam McGuffie 4.28 in 40 41.5 vert, Broad jump 11.2 ft 3.8 in shuttle
Duarte is a reporter for the Chronicle, covering UH and Rice.
McGuffie was a big name in local HS (Cy Fair) and played RB for Rodriguez in Michigan in his Fr year. He transferred to Rice when Rodriguez left UM.
The Owls moved him to WR in his Sr year, probably to take advantage of his speed and his jumping ability.
I have no idea if he's a fit in the NFL.
