He had a 29-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-11 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.46 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.48 seconds. He also had 15 strength lifts on the bench press. They said Crist - who transferred to Kansas after three seasons at Notre Dame - looked pretty good in the workout.

01/13/13 - Former Kansas University quarterback Dayne Crist got back on the winning track Friday night at the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game in Tucson, Ariz., helping lead the West all-stars to a 40-7 rout of the East. Crist, who started seven games during his one season at KU and was benched midway through the year, was one of two quarterbacks on the West roster and played multiple series. He finished 6-of-12 passing for 62 yards and one touchdown and also was sacked once.
His lone TD pass came in the third quarter, when he led an 11-play, 85-yard scoring drive that spanned 5:15 and resulted in a 10-yard strike from Crist to former San Jose State running back Ina Liaina. Next up for Crist is a trip to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Jan. 19. He will join fellow Jayhawks Trevor Marrongelli, Duane Zlatnik, Toben Opurum and Josh Williams in playing in the all-star game sponsored by the NFL Players Association. - John Young, KUSports.com
01/11/13 - Former Kansas University quarterback Dayne Crist, who came to KU with a world of hype and left with a whimper, will begin the first stage of his quest to become a professional football player at 7 tonight in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game in Tucson, Ariz.
Crist, one of eight departing Jayhawks selected to play in various postseason all-star showcases during the next few weeks, is ready to do whatever it takes to put himself in the most positive light for pro scouts. “Gotta take a shot,” he said when discussing his future during the final weeks of KU’s 1-11 season. “Gotta take a shot. I’m not done working.”
In some ways, Crist could be just what NFL coaches and scouts are looking for during the couple of months leading up to this year’s draft. At 6-foot-4, 235 pounds, he has prototype size. He was tutored - twice - by KU coach Charlie Weis. He has a strong arm and can make all of the throws required by NFL quarterbacks. Plus, those who suited up alongside him say he’s a great teammate and, perhaps more importantly, no character risk.
“He’s the kind of guy that a game like this, it could really jump-start things for him,” Crist’s All-Star Game coach, Dick Tomey, told the Arizona Daily Star. “I remember when he was coming out of high school - what a prospect.” - Matt Tait, KUsports.com
