Florida State Seminoles wary of Oklahoma State’s speedy Tyreek Hill


Miami Herald Writer

Oklahoma State’s Tyreek Hill has yet to play a game for the Cowboys, but he has already grabbed Florida State’s attention.

Hill, a speedy junior college transfer who earned All-America honors on OSU’s track team earlier this year, is expected to run, catch and return kicks against FSU on Saturday (8 p.m., ABC).

He helped OSU to a Big 12 indoor track championship and ran among the fastest 100- and 200-meter dash times in the country as a high school senior.

“Tyreek is a very unique talent, and he is very dynamic,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. “He can be a receiver, he can be a running back and do a lot of things.

“I know we are going to have our hands full.”

• FSU left Tallahassee for Arlington, Texas, following Thursday’s practice. The Seminoles will travel on Thursday for all Saturday away games this season.

• FSU’s injury report confirmed that LB Matthew Thomas, a former Booker T. Washington High standout, is out for Saturday’s game with an ankle injury. LB Delvin Purifoy (ankle), LB Markus Eligwe (foot), RB Ryan Green (hamstring) and DB Colin Blake (shoulder) are also listed as out.

• Fisher again declined to comment on sophomore WR Jesus Wilson’s status. The Columbus High graduate has been suspended since July following his involvement with a stolen scooter incident.
