Ohio State’s receivers went to the NFL Scouting Combine expecting to put on a show.
Parris Campbell burned down the track with an official 40-yard dash time of 4.31 seconds.
Terry McLaurin followed him at 4.35 seconds, and Johnnie Dixon turned in an official time of 4.41.
The trio ended up in the top eight fastest players at their position.
Campbell’s time tied Andy Isabella of Massachusetts for No. 1, an ironic turn of events for Northeast Ohio natives who took very different paths to Indianapolis.
While Campbell was a highly regarded four-star recruit coming out of Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, Isabella garnered zero stars at Mayfield High School.
Both had great college careers.
Campbell set a school single-season record with 90 catches and became only the fifth Ohio State player with 1,000 receiving yards in a season (1,063).
Isabella led the nation with 1,698 yards receiving and was a consensus All-American.
