The Huskers like juco speedster

Tyreek Hill is likely the fastest junior college football player in the country and recently Nebraska jumped in with a scholarship.

Garden City Community College athlete Tyreek Hill's stat line as a running back are solid, but his numbers don't necessarily blow anyone away: 66 carries for 389 yards and two touchdowns.

His numbers as a receiver, quite better: 35 receptions for 713 yards and five touchdowns.

But it's not his stats that have schools like: Nebraska, Alabama, USC, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Tennessee interested, throwing a scholarship offer on the table.

It probably has something to do with this:

Hill is arguably the fastest junior college football player in the country, he's so fast he has his own WIKI page after earning USA Today All-American track honors in 2012.

His personal best times are: 100m – 10.19 and 200m – 20.14.

Recently, Nebraska's Ron Brown started to recruit the 5-foot-9, 185-pound athlete.

"He seems like a very cool guy and someone that I could definitely get used to being around," said Hill. "I want to visit Nebraska, USC, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida State, Oklahoma State, that's six schools, but I'm going to try to swing another visit that's not an official, I need to ask my mom and dad.

"I really want to find a place I can call home and become a better football/sprinter at the same time."
