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. Sep 28 - 2:09 PM

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.
