Top combine performer visiting Iowa

One of the top performers at the U.S. Army National Combine this past weekend was Class of 2011 wide receiver Wesley Leftwich, as he turned in the fastest forty time of the day at 4.31 seconds. The 6-foot-1, 192-pound Leftwich, who hails from Columbia, Missouri, ended up getting injured during the latter part of the combine, but overall it was still a good experience.

Being named a top performer in testing is nothing new for Leftwich as he turned in several impressive combine performances last summer, including sub 4.4 times in the forty and a 39-inch vertical. That athleticism, along with a solid junior season, has led to interest from a number of colleges already.
