Check out his HS and NCAA freshman 110H and 400H times ... They are very very impressive. As a freshman at Baylor he was 49low at 400H despite spending most of the year in football training. Eddie Southern-esque with very little training. Had he trained solely for the event I think after 3 years he is 47low.
I wish I had a buck for every high schooler/NCAA guy who coulda/woulda/shoulda. Remember HS 100m record holder Derrick Florence? What did he do at Texas A&M? Remember Cali State sprint champ Marquez Holliwell, what happened at USC? Then there's Carter Suggs, Cyril Wyatt, Preston Griffen, James Jackson and on and on and....
Look at the Frenchman LeMaitre, he's regressing.
RGIII showed potential, that's it for me.
