I think Hills is probably better than Newton or Vondrell McGee, but I'd be pretty surprised if his senior season is as good as Chis O or Fozzy were. I woudn't cringe at seeing him in the wildcat (though I do suspect Gray will be that guy), and it's possible that Hillls could emerge as the best 3rd and long option, but I think his primary role will be providing depth and running out the clock in blowouts.
LOL, this isn't rocket science. I think he is a very talented running back.
He has spent three years in Mack Brown's doghouse for fumbling the ball in practice and I think Jeremy has figured it out now. He is going to get some chances to show his stuff in the first three games.
After the year, I think he goes to a camp and surprises people with his work ethic and natural ability.
I would not say he is better athletically than Vondrell. But hope has time to shine. Seems to a dedicated Team player.
"Don't know. Never had one"
-- D. Royal-Mack Brown how to coach a team after a losing season
Hills had every chance to shine last season but showed he's not good enough of a RB to replace 2 true freshmen. He has proven if a play is blocked to get you 10 yds he will get you 6. He can't even be a producer on a team where he was the only healthy back, it's a virtual impossibility that he will flash enough to make an NFL roster where even college stars and producers often times don't make the cut.
Jeremy Hills is probably a quarter of a second faster than McGee in the 40.
Mcgee ran around a 4.6 at a Texas pro day after being out of football for a year. If I were to guess, I'd say hills is in that same ballpark.
It was a 4.65. Hills ran a 10.65 100 as a senior, and I seem to remember him being mentioned as one of the faster guys on the team. I'm betting he runs a sub 4.5 next spring.
He has no more chance at being drafted or making a pro roster than Texas has signing a kid out of La. that LSU covets.
Who knows what will happen, but I'd be shocked if he ran a 4.4 and change. If he does possess that kind of speed, he certainly didn't show it last season.
