Alief Elsik High School is home to a very versatile running back. Jeremy Hills put together an outstanding junior season both running and catching the football. He is the younger brother of current Texas standout, Tony Hills. Head Coach Bill Barron raved about the ability of his star junior prospect.
"You never see him get caught," Barron said. "He is a great asset. He is a real runner. He has great open speed and vision. We are in the process of calculating our stats, but he may have been our top receiver as well."
Jeremy Hills is a very popular kid right now among college football recruiters. He is getting a ton of mail from schools all over the nation.
"He is getting mail from schools all over the country from Notre Dame to Florida to Nebraska. I am trying to get all of them sent to his house. It is wearing me out," Barron said.
The Texas Longhorns are among the schools interested in Hills. Coach Barron thinks that Hills is definitely good enough to play football for the Longhorns.
The 6-foot-0, 185-pound Hills finished the regular season with 1,328 yards with 15 touchdowns rushing. He will be recruited to play running back by most schools, but others might want him to play wide receiver. Hills runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds.
