Even though he’s suffered a couple of leg injuries during his college career, Arizona Wildcats wide receiver Tyrell Johnson is still ridiculously fast.

Back on April 15, Johnson returned to track and field competition in grand fashion, running a 10.42 second 100m, which was good for seventh overall at that particular meet.

Well, he showcased his stuff again at a timing day for the Arizona football team on Monday. He was clocked at 4.24 seconds while running a 40-yard dash.

According to USA Today, a 4.24 40 would be tied for second all-time among NFL Combine participants. The fastest time ever was run just this year by Washington Huskies wide receiver John Ross III, who turned in a 4.22 showing in Indy.

Arizona has plenty of fast guys on offense. If the coaches can come up with creative ways to use that talent in games, then the Wildcats could certainly score points with more ease than they did last year.
