Tyreek Hill, an all-purpose offensive skills player and return specialist from Garden City (Kan.) Community College, has verbally committed to Oklahoma State. Hill confirmed the pledge on his Twitter account "Imfasterthanya" by tweeting "Oklahoma State is my new home. #GoCowboys."

Garden City is 4-1 on the season and might have moved into number one in the junior college polls this week except for a 35-7 loss to Trinity Valley last Saturday.

This season, Hill has caught 16 passes for 256 yards (16.0 yards per catch average) and four touchdowns. He has also rushed 54 times for 292 yards (5.4 yards per carry) and three touchdowns. He is averaging 20.7 yards on kickoff returns and 12.5 yards on punt returns. Last season as a freshman he played at Garden City and carried 66 times for 389 yards and two touchdowns.

As you might imagine, Hill is a speedster who combines straight track speed with the quickness and ability to make a defender mix to create big plays. He is very elusive and has plenty of moves. In a foot race few defenders are going to catch him without having a favorable pursuit angle.

Hill had offers from Alabama (where he visited July 17), Arizona State, Arkansas, Baylor, Florida State, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska, OU, Tennessee, UCLA, and USC before committing to Oklahoma State.

We have a call into to Hill, who is likely at practice, and will have more later.
