UAB wide out did not receive 100k from Adidas for fastest 40

Michigan State cornerback Trae Waynes, Miami wide receiver Phillip Dorsett and West Virginia wide receiver Kevin White each came away with the prize given by Adidas after posting 4.31, 4.33 and 4.35 times, respectively, in the 40.

The three players not only wore Adidas cleats, but signed an endorsement deal with the company before running, which was a condition of the offer.

UAB wide receiver JJ Nelson ran the fastest time in the combine (4.28) and did it in Adidas cleats, but company spokesman Michael Ehrlich said Nelson didn’t sign with the brand before running.

Last year, Adidas gave a 100k to Brandin Cooks who turned around and signed a deal with Nike.
