Hurricanes strutt their stuff for football recruiting guru

Ron Dias clocks Jonathan Gallant during a combine session Tuesday at Holland College.

Holland College football players had an opportunity to workout for a well-known recruiter Tuesday afternoon.

Ron Dias made his first visit to Prince Edward Island to see the four players. Nathan Conway, Jonathan Gallant, Dale Pickstock Jr. and Kaeto Okafor went through a variety of drills for Dias.

"It's awesome," said Okafor, a 19-year-old defensive end from Nigeria. "It's a great opportunity for me."

Dias has helped many Canadians find their ways to university programs. One of the players he helped is former Florida Gators quarterback and current football commentator Jesse Palmer.
