Oklahoma State RB Justice Hill to enter NFL draft
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State running back Justice Hill will skip his senior season and enter the 2019 NFL draft.
Coach Mike Gundy announced Monday that Hill will not play against Missouri in the Liberty Bowl on Dec. 31. Hill made his announcement in a thank you letter to fans, teammates and coaches on social media.
The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Hill thanked Gundy “for taking a chance on a kid from Tulsa.” He added: “You saw something in me when others did not and helped me turn my dreams into a reality.”
Hill finished his career with 3,539 yards rushing in three seasons, seventh-best in school history. He left the Nov. 10 game against Oklahoma in the first half due to injury and missed the final two regular-season games against West Virginia and TCU.
Hill ran for 1,142 yards as a freshman, 1,467 yards as a sophomore. He ran for 930 yards this season. In his best game, he ran for 228 yards and two touchdowns his sophomore season against Oklahoma.
