Neon shirt, neon shorts, neon superman socks, neon Superman shoes with flakes of blue and orange and even neon compression shorts. It’s safe to say West stood out at the rain-soaked Pro Day, where 27 NFL scouts from 22 teams came out to watch him and other former Tigers at Johnny Unitas Stadium. His wardrobe made sure all eyes would be on him, if they weren’t already. And that’s exactly what the past three months have been about for the leading rushing in Towson history: Getting attention.
