OSU looks to replace Tyreek Hill

Ponca City Now - August 14, 2015 9:09 am

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma State players Chris Carson and Jeff Carr are in line to fill the void Tyreek Hill left.

Hill was dismissed last December after a domestic violence incident, leaving the Cowboys without their best playmaker.

Carson has been voted the Big 12 preseason newcomer of the year. He was one of the nation’s top junior college recruits after rushing for 994 yards and catching 12 passes last season at Butler (Kansas) Community College. In addition to offering breakaway speed and an impressive physical presence, the 6-foot-2, 202-pound back brings other skills and intangibles.

Carr, a 5-7, 168-pound speedster, ran for at least 1,600 yards each of his last three high school seasons. Though small, the true freshman has proven in early practices that he’s capable of handling hits.
