Texas WR Xavier Worthy blazed a 4.21 40, breaking John Ross' previous record of 4.22 seconds, set back in 2017, Eric Edholm of reports.

Worthy stepped up for his first 40-yard dash in Indy and delivered a heater: 4.25 seconds. The stirring sprint got a big response from the Lucas Oil Stadium crowd, unofficially topping Clemson CB Nate Wiggins' Friday time of 4.28 seconds for the best mark of the 2024 event.

But Worthy was not done, wanting to take down Ross' all-time mark. And on his second attempt, the 5-foot-11 1/4, 165-pound Worthy delivered an unofficial time of 4.22 seconds, sending a buzz through the stadium. A short time later, the official time came through: 4.21, breaking the record. Worthy's 1.49-second 10-yard split was also tops at this year's event.

Worthy's 40 capped off an incredible day of testing. Earlier on Saturday, the former Longhorns star hit 41 inches on the vertical leap and 10-foot-11 on the broad jump. He opted to forgo the positional drills following his record-setting dash, but even so, Worthy's performance puts him in the running for one of the best combine workouts of all time.
