GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Urban Meyer is searching for the fastest student on campus.
He's quite certain it's one of his football players --- Louis Murphy, Chris Rainey or Deonte Thompson.
But just in case, he's having a race Saturday to find out for sure.
Meyer says and if someone beats his speedsters before the team's spring game, that student is on scholarship.
It would be a long shot, especially after school officials held 40-yard dash time trials and didn't exactly find any real burners.
Of the approximately 225 students who tried out, two covered the distance in 4-point-47 seconds, one ran a 4-point-48 and another was clocked at 4-point-49.
The fastest 15 students advanced to the finals Saturday. They will be split into three groups of five. Murphy will race one group, Rainey another and Thompson a third.
