He had injury issues senior year, I recall, but ran some really, really good times (and doubles and triples) as a junior. Seems like he won 4 events at Arcadia or something crazy. So he hasn't totally come from nowhere, it's just that the senior year injury prevented him from moving into alltime great territory on the 100/200/100H and long hurdle lists.
Devon is beast and his performance was amazing, given the fact he started the season with a 14.xx. He will make more money in track than football cause right now there is no guarantee he could even go pro in football. And he could go pro right now in track.
He can go pro in track and keep his football eligibility right? That's what he should do.
I'm assuming he's already got a full-ride in football. But if he's not running for Oregon the football team may not let him do track.
How good was the kid in high school?
Can anyone name a comparable transformation for anyone else in such a short time?
