The Associated Press has selected freshman running back, Justice Hill as the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year.

Hill broke Mike Hamilton’s overall freshman rushing record against OU in Norman, finishing with 99 yards against the Sooners.

Hill’s 1,042 yards is the most by any Oklahoma State tailback since Joseph Randle reached 1,417 yards back in 2012. Hill was a game-changer for the Cowboys this season, beating out three senior running backs and sophomore Jeff Carr for the starting role.

Hill ranks fourth in the Big 12 in rushing yards behind Texas’ D’Onta Foreman, Oklahoma’s Joe Mixon and West Virginia’s Justin Crawford.

Hill also ranks fourth among freshman nationally in total rushing yards.

Earlier today, ESPN listed Hill as a second-team All-Big 12 selection as well.
