Get To Know Your Orange Man - #34, RB Jacob Hill

Will freshman walk-on Jacob Hill get a Rudy-esque shot at the field?

Name: Jacob Hill

Position: Running Back

Year: Freshman

Height: 5'6"

Weight: 165

Hometown: Detroit, MI

High School: Detroit County Day

2014 Stats: In his senior year of high school, Hill ran for 700 yards and scored 16 touchdowns. Hill was a captain on his team and earned all-state honors.

2015 Projections: Hill is a walk-on but there is a chance he could see the field in a return situation with his elite speed. He'll have the opportunity to learn behind running backs George Morris II and Devante McFarlane, who will split carries this season.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say?: N/R

Links Of Wonder: It would be really hard to screw up the pronunciation of his name, but we wouldn't put it past some broadcasters.

Tweets Of Wonder:

What Does Shafer Think Of Him?: Shafer told, "He's an undersized tailback with great feet, great vision and he's an outstanding student."

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Hill's brother plays college football at Princeton where he is a defensive back.
