Although surely still disappointed after the loss to West Virginia last weekend, Oklahoma State fans can rejoice knowing that the Cowboys just landed the fastest JUCO player in the nation in Tyreek Hill. A running back at Garden City Community College in Kansas, the 5-foot-8, 185-pound Hill is expected to line up at wide receiver for Mike Gundy’s Cowboys, giving the offense some serious speed on the outside.
So how fast is Hill?
Well, Hill almost set a national high school record in the 200 meters last year, recording a blistering time of 20.14 at the 36th Golden South Classic. He’s also run the 100 meters in 10.19 seconds. For the sake of comparison, consider that De’Anthony Thomas of the Oregon Ducks has personal bests of 10.21 in the 100 meters and 20.61 in the 200.
Yeah, I’d say Hill is pretty damn fast.
Hill, who made his commitment to Oklahoma State official on Monday, was recruited by the likes of Alabama, Georgia, Baylor, Oklahoma, and USC.
