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

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

• Fisher again declined to comment on sophomore WR

status. The Columbus High graduate has been suspended since July following his involvement with a stolen scooter incident.
