WATCH: Curtis Samuel tied the B1G record for the fastest 40 in combine history
Curtis Samuel hasn’t lost any speed off his fastball the last two months.
The former Ohio State H-back showed that he’s one of the fastest prospects in the draft with a blistering 40-yard dash. Samuel officially recorded a 4.31-second 40-yard dash, which tied the fastest time ever for a B1G player at the combine (with electric timing).
In case you missed it, here was Samuel’s first attempt. Don’t blink.

Samuel’s 4.31 tied him with the likes of Trae Waynes (2015), Justin King (2008) and Deon Butler (2009) for the B1G’s fastest 40 at the combine.
Reggie Germany and Bradley Roby had the Ohio State record for the fastest 40 at the combine with 4.39 seconds, but that title now belongs to Samuel.
Unfortunately for Samuel, it came on the heels of John Ross’ 4.22-second 40-yard dash, which broke Chris Johnson’s combine record of 4.24.
Still, Samuel earned himself some money by showing off his next-level speed.
