Myles Jack

“He’s close, but he’s not totally ready, and I’m not gonna let him go out there and run an average time,” Jack’s agent, John Thornton, said Tuesday. “He’s going back to Indy for a medical recheck on April 14th and 15th, so he won’t be doing anything before then. If there’s time — and if he can prepare the way he needs to prepare — he might run for a specific team in a private workout. But I feel like most of them have seen what they need to see.”
