State of the Action

Junior Jeremiah Willis has to be the favorite here, even if not the top seed.  He jumped out to a crazy personal best at Indoor Nationals, and has the capability to do so again.  He pulled off a clutch jump in the Triple at Indoor States, but we'll go into why that one may be vulnerable on the next page.  Kirk Francis and Robert Blue are close enough to make a difference, and Jamaican transfer Shevaughn Allen leads the field on paper.
