Ann Arbor, MI– Approximately 1,400 players attended Michigan’s Exposure U football camp back in June and it apparently yielded impressive results. One of the most noteworthy recruits in attendance was a Montreal native, Benjamin St-Juste, who was able to go from unknown prospect to player on the roster in a matter of days.
Top-ranked recruits from states like Texas and Florida were immersed in football culture since birth and were practically baptized in Gatorade, but Ben’s first sport wasn’t football, it was hockey. In fact, his first language wasn’t even English, it was french. Evidently, Ben St-Juste isn’t just a fast learner but he also has a verified 40 speed of 4.5 seconds, making him quick enough on his feet to keep up with some of the best wide receivers in college football.
