Tyreek Hill has offers from Florida State and Alabama, but he wants one from the Oregon Ducks. The 5-9, 186-lb. running back from Garden City Community College in Kansas has been timed in 9.98 (wind-aided) in the 100 meters. As high school track star he ran the 200 in 20.14, the second fastest time in national prep track history. You can't teach speed: in a game against Butler Community College last fall, Hill was the leading rusher and leading receiver, with a 69-yard touchdown catch. (broncobusters.com photo) De'Anthony Thomas, proclaimed "the fastest man in college football" by Sports Illustrated, has personal bests of 10.31 and 20.61 in the same events.   Hill's high school football coach Ken Eldridge told Dave Krider of Maxpreps that at one point in his senior season Hill was scoring every 4th time he got the ball.  "If you want to see how good of a competitor a kid is, put him in the weight room," Eldridge said, "He hates to lose. A kid benched 310 pounds. He just jumps up there and ends up getting 315. He can squat 500 and power clean 315. He's nothing but one muscle." Hill is a two-sport star who wants to go to a school with a great track program. His high school and JC times would dominate in the sprints for Oregon coach Robert Johnson. A USA Today All-American in track, he told Rob Cassidy of rivals.com,  "I want a place I can call home, It has to have a good track program and a good football program. It also has to be somewhere that my parents can trust me to be, so they won't be worried about me. It has to have a good education program and all that." He's also run wind-legal times of 10.14 and 10.25, in national and international competition. The Georgia speedster says he hasn't been timed in the 40 since junior year of high school, but that he ran a 4.28.  Last year as a freshman for the Broncobusters, Hill carried the ball 66 times for 389 yards and 3 tds, a 5.9-yard average. He also caught 35 passes for 713 yards and 5 more tds. Here's a look at his high school highlight film, at Coffee Country High School in Douglas, Georgia:   The DAT-faster scatback is in communication with the Oregon coaches, and says he wants to schedule an official visit.
