100 Days of Summer: Get to Know No. 5 Justice Hill



He doesn’t require an introduction as much as he’s earned a celebration. Personally, I’m celebrating the fact that in five days we can stop pining for football — and actually start enjoying football.

Five. Days.

How he got to OSU

Last year’s Freshman All-American Justice Hill received four total scholarship offers. Fortunately, he only needed one. The Oklahoma Class 6A-II Offensive Player of the Year from Booker T. Washington (Tulsa) has been an OSU fan for some time. When the Cowboys came calling, he didn’t hesitate and committed quickly.

What he’s done in Stillwater

Let’s take stock. Hill broke both freshman rushing records at Oklahoma State — Mike Hamilton’s freshman record of 961 yards and Thurman Thomas’ true freshman record of 843 yards.

With 1,142 yards, he led all FBS freshmen in rushing yards in 2016 while not securing a starting role until Week 4. And he was the first 1,000-yard rusher at OSU since Joseph Randle in 2012.

Role in 2017


If he can beat the Cowboys’ all-time leading rusher (Thurman Thomas) in year-one yardage, what are his sights set on this season? Hill’s also put on a sophomore 20 and even did his best to upstage his teammates and head coach attending Big 12 Media Days when he squatted 565 pounds that same morning.

He’s better at pass protection. He’s better at catching. He’s just better. And that’s a scary thought for the Big 12’s linebackers.

Noteworthy stats and highlights

Hill scored six rushing touchdowns as a true freshman and because I like you guys I’m going to show you every. single. one.

Here we go. The first was against Baylor in the first play following Baylor’s punt return snafu that gave OSU the ball at the Bears’ 5-yard line.

Here’s No. 2, that great run after contact against UT.

And Iowa State.

Against the Jayhawks.

No. 5 against Texas Tech.

And the only way to end this post.
