Boston College redshirt junior RB Jonathan Hilliman transferred to Rutgers.
We like it. The Scarlet Knights found a fair amount of success in Miami transfer Gus Edwards during the 2017 season and will be trying that transfer route once more. Hilliman will be eligible to play immediately for Rutgers in the fall as a graduate transfer. The 6-foot, 224-pounder managed 638 rushing yards (3.8 YPC) and five touchdowns for the past season, and that's with true freshman A.J. Dillon exploding onto the scene. He'll have every opportunity to make his mark during the coming year, as Edwards no longer has collegiate eligibility left to his fair name. Jan 11 - 5:15 PM

Boston College senior RB Jonathan Hilliman rushed for 89 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in Saturday's 27-8 victory over Central Michigan.

His third touchdown came on a three-yard scoring reception. Hilliman entered the day with only one touchdown through four games. He's rushed for over 100 yards in just one game, and has been in an even timeshare with true frosh A.J. Dillon since Week 2.

Boston College senior RB Jonathan Hilliman rushed for 122 yards on 22 carries in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame.

Hilliman rushed for 860 yards as a freshman but has been limited to 198 and 542 yards, respectively, over the past two years due to injuries. Through three games, he's rushed for 203 yards on 3.7 YPC. He's yet to reach the end zone.

Boston College senior RB Jonathan Hilliman rushed for 58 yards on 25 carries in Friday's 23-20 win over Northern Illinois.

We hope you spent Friday evening with friends, family and well-wishers, rather than watch this game. It was a tough one to stomach offensively. Hilliman led the Eagles with his 58 yards rushing while averaging a disturbingly low 2.3 YPC. The two squads barely surpassed 700 total yards of offense combined. More of the same could be coming when Boston College plays Wake Forest a week from Saturday.

Boston College junior RB Jonathan Hilliman carried the ball 17 times for 102 yards and a touchdown in the school's 17-14 loss to Georgia Tech.

Hilliman reeled off a 73 yard run early in the third quarter, making a number of Yellow Jackets miss in the open field. The running back broke his foot last September and this was his return to the field. Hilliman is BC's lead ball carrier.

Boston College sophomore RB Jonathan Hilliman suffered a broken foot and is out against Duke.

Hilliman was BC's leading rusher, with 198 yards and two touchdowns on 51 carries. The school has done a good job of splitting the carries, with Tyler Rouse and Myles Willis also receiving touches. The Eagles have now lost their top running back and quarterback.

Boston College sophomore RB Jonathan Hilliman spun 24 carries into 119 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 17-14 win over Northern Illinois.

In a slog of a game, Hilliman was the most effective offensive player for either team and it wasn't particularly close. He averaged an even 5.0 YPC to carry the Eagles to victory while scoring his touchdown on a 21-yard dash near the end of the third quarter. The 6-foot, 224-pound sophomore's performance is made all the more impressive by the fact that he had compiled just 79 rushing yards on 27 carries through three games. He'll take on a tough Duke run defense next weekend as he tries to build on Saturday's nice effort.

ESPN's David M. Hale believes Boston College sophomore RB Jonathan Hilliman is a darkhorse candidate for ACC offensive player of the year.

"Two years ago, Andre Williams rushed his way to New York for the Heisman ceremony. Last year, Tyler Murphy became one of the most prolific rushing QBs in ACC history," Hale wrote. "So what’s to suggest the Eagles won’t have another monster rusher in 2015? Hilliman certainly has the talent to make it happen, and few runners in the league are more fearsome near the goal line." The 6-foot-1 224-pounder earned All-Atlantic Coast Conference third-team honors as a true freshman last year, ranking second on the team with 712 rushing yards while starting six games. He's in line for a far bigger work load in 2015.

Four-star running back recruit Jonathan Hilliman of Jersey City, N.J. decided to stay close to home, committing to Rutgers on Thursday.

The 6-foot-1 215-pounder rushed for 1,471 yards and 21 touchdowns last season as a high school junior. Hilliman, the No. 42 ranked running back in the 2014 recruiting class according to Rivals, tabbed Rutgers because they're "making a turn for the better and it's going to be great to be a part of that." Rutgers beat out Ohio State, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Miami (Fla.), Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Oregon, Wisconsin and others for Hilliman's services. Rutgers will play in the American Athletic Conference this season before moving to the Big Ten in 2014. "They're getting a 220-225 pound back in the Big Ten that can run, catch, and block very well and that can be a big asset," Hilliman's high school football coach Rich Hansen said.
