UND's Garett Maag, Tyler Hoosman work out for pro scouts
UND's two 2022 seniors went through a second pro day in front of 10 scouts on Wednesday.
GRAND FORKS — On the video board inside UND's Fritz Pollard Jr. Athletic Center, Tyler Hoosman and Garett Maag highlights from the 2022 season ran in a loop.
But Wednesday was all about pro scouts seeing first-hand why Hoosman and Maag could be an attractive addition to an organization.
Maag and Hoosman went through testing in front of about 10 scouts, including representatives of the nearby Minnesota Vikings and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, during UND's Pro Day.
The two were also measured and weighed in the weight room at Hyslop Sports Center. Maag recorded 14 reps on the bench press during the Hyslop portion of pro day.
Both Hoosman and Maag were going through a second pro day of the offseason. Hoosman competed at an event at Northwestern in Chicago, while Maag joined players at the University of Minnesota.
Hoosman had 20 bench press reps at Northwestern and elected not to bench in Grand Forks. During the vertical jump at the Pollard Center, Hoosman recorded a leap of 35.5 inches.
"I had a pretty good performance at Northwestern, so I didn't expect to do everything here," Hoosman said. "I think we're going to start transitioning to getting ready for minicamp and looking forward to my next opportunity. It was good to get in front of scouts here with the sole focus being Garett and I."
Maag also let his first pro day stand for many of the measurables.
"I was happy with what I did there, so I decided to just bench and run routes," Maag said. "Both (pro day) opportunities are amazing. It was good teams came up here. I know it's out of the way, so I appreciate them coming up."
Maag spent five seasons, including three as a captain, with the Fighting Hawks, racking up 19 touchdowns, 164 catches and 2,205 yards.
Hoosman, meanwhile, made the most of his one season in Grand Forks after transferring from Northern Iowa. In 2022, Hoosman ran for 1,023 yards and 12 touchdowns. Hoosman had six 100-yard games, earning second team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference honors.
