100% Orange Juice: Expecting Big from Tyreek Hill, New Basketball Recruit


Good Morning and Welcome back to 100% OJ, your morning stop for all Oklahoma State athletic news!

Whether you are rushing out the door or sitting down with your phone or computer, everyone needs a good glass of orange juice in the morning. So sit down, relax and enjoy!

This year, the Cowboy’s offense is going to be a learning process.

There is talent across the board, but with a fairly new offensive line, an inexperienced wide receiving corps, and a backfield with not that much playing time, OSU football will have to work through some growing pains.

One man who can help completely dismiss those problems is Tyreek Hill.

With an unofficial nickname like the “Freak”, and official 40 times in the 4.3 range, Hill has the potential to be the proceed-straight-to-go, collect 200$ dollars card for Oklahoma State.

Clint Brunt of Fox News has more on how the Cowboys expecting big things from Hill.

"Hill’s versatility at Garden City Community College was among the qualities that drew Oklahoma State’s attention. He caught 32 passes for 532 yards and six touchdowns and had 101 carries for 659 yards and five scores last year."

Hill didn’t just make an impression on the football team when he enrolled this spring.

"After enrolling at Oklahoma State in January and joining the track team, Hill won the 200 meters and placed second in the 60 meters at the Big 12 Indoor Track and Field Championship in the spring. Now, he’s the preseason Big 12 Newcomer of the Year."

In other OSU athletics news, Oklahoma State basketball is a top-6 finalist for Elijah Thomas, a 5-star recruit. Schultzy of Cowboys Ride for Free has more on the new potential Cowboy.

"Thomas is widely considered to be among the best bigs, and even one of the best players in the 2015 class. ESPN ranks him as the 10th best player, Rivals as the 11th best player, and 247Sports as the 17th best player in the nation."

Travis Ford might just be the recruiter that everyone says he is.

"There’s a lot to love about Thomas’s game. He has a knack for scoring down low and has a very soft touch around the basket. He has a variety of post moves and can use either hand."

The Cowboys are sorely missing a big threat down low. Michael Cobbins is a great defender, but he has never been known to be a big scorer for the team.
