Also a talented track athlete, Peppers set the New Jersey Non-Public Class A outdoor 100-meter dash record with a time of 10.77 seconds.


For football, that translates to "fast, but he wouldn't pass Denard on most plays". Denard ran a 10.44 in high school. The Michigan track record is 10.22 for comparison.

I would like to see a list of New Jersey's top 200 m times. Butch Woolfolk name is probably on the list and he was in HS in the late 70's. Woolfolk had the fastest 100 m and 200 m times in the nation as a high school senior in 1978

If it was a 10.20, he would own 2nd place all-time, for Michigan Track records. Faster than Woolfolk, faster than Wheatley, faster than Denard. I think we can go out on a limb and say it might be just a bit relevant. The things that a stop-watch can't measure I'm willing to leave to the coaching staff.

I just watched his highlight video and I've never seen such gamebreaking shiftiness and ability to play multiple positions (RB, WR, LB, and CB) in one player.  He's like Reggie Bush and Honey Badger all in one, but better since he's got a bigger frame.  More than anyone left on the board I would like Peppers to commit to play for the Wolverines.  I already miss Denards video game playmaking and I think Peppers can bring that same showtime brand to Ann Arbor.  With Mattison's mad scientist blitzing schemes and Peppers ability to get through and around small spaces, our defense will be SCARY good.
