Akron is still not recognizing dismissed Oklahoma State junior WR/RB Tyreek Hill on their roster.

Hill was dismissed back in December following domestic abuse charges, and an anonymous SEC coach ripped the former Cowboy for his "repulsive" twitter account during the football player's recruitment. Hill reportedly transferred to Akron, but the change in school might not have happened after all. "Tried to get Akron to confirm he was joining the team a couple times since he announced. Nada," ESPN writer David Ubben tweeted.

Louisville graduate WR Michaelee Harris will play his final season at Akron.

Harris' time at Louisville has been filled with injuries. Notably, Harris has torn the ACL and PCL in both knees and missed two full seasons. He started five games last season but only recorded nine catches for 113 yards and a touchdown.

Akron senior OLB Jatavis Brown "was given free agent grades by scouts, in large part due to poor measurables," reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"That said he’s an explosive linebacker who goes sideline to sideline," Pauline wrote. "I could definitely see him making it at the next level as an 8th linebacker/special teams player." With a big season, Brown could work himself into the Day 3 mix.

Kyle Pohl - QB - Zips

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes that Akron senior QB Kyle Pohl was handed a low grade by draft scouts.

"Quarterback Kyle Pohl was also handed a low grade but I like his poise, QB intelligence and accuracy. He outplayed Christian Hackenberg during the first half of the Zips loss to Penn State last season. Arm strength is a question but Pohl’s intangibles are enticing," Pauline wrote. The 6-foot-3, 213-pound Pohl passed for 2189 yards last season with 9 touchdowns and 8 interceptions in 10 games of play (missed two games with a head injury). The Akron prospect will need to play consistent to keep dual-threat sophomore Tra’Von Chapman off his heels in 2015.

An anonymous SEC coach ripped former Oklahoma State and current Akron junior WR/RB Tyreek Hill.

The coach, who said he watched Hill on film run the "fastest 100-meter guy in the history of the world," decided to stop recruiting the sprinter when he came across Hill's Twitter handle. "It was repulsive," the coach said. "I wouldn't be able to say it to you. I wouldn't be able to say it a female of any sort." Hill went on to win the Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year, perhaps inducing regret -- right up until he was dismissed following a felony domestic assault charge. Last season, Hill ran for 568 yards, posted 281 receiving yards and returned two kickoffs for a touchdown and one punt for a touchdown. He must sit out this season.

Former Washington State redshirt junior ILB Darryl Monroe transferred to Akron.

He's eligible to play for the Zips immediately as a graduate transfer. "They’re genuine, they care about you as a person and a player and they want to win," Monroe said of Terry Bowden‘s staff. Across three seasons and 37 games at Wazzu, Monroe had 244 tackles. The 6-foot-1, 235-pounder runs a 4.76 forty. "Monroe sports a chiseled frame and the strength gained from time in the weight room is obvious on the field, where he shows impressive power to disengage and as a hitter," CBS Sports' Rob Rang observed last summer. "He's highly aggressive and doesn't possess great balance, which results in some big collisions when he guesses right and some cut-back opportunities when he overruns the play. Monroe is at his best in the box due to average straight-line speed, though he is alert in coverage."

Oklahoma State has dismissed junior WR/RB Tyreek Hill following his Thursday night arrest for domestic abuse charges.

Hill has also been dismissed from the track team. The JUCO transfer looked very promising this season, but that all comes to an end very quickly. Expect Hill to enter the 2015 NFL Draft after just one season at the FBS level. Obviously he possesses talent, but Hill could easily go undrafted after this most recent event.

Oklahoma State junior WR/RB Tyreek Hill was arrested on domestic violence charges Thursday night.

Police were called to a local emergency room where a female indicated her boyfriend, Hill, assaulted her after an argument turned into a physical altercation. The woman says she was struck in the face, stomach, and was choked. "Hill was arrested based upon probable cause for domestic abuse – a felony punishable by one to three years in prison and/or a $3,000 fine," the Tulsa World writes. Hill transferred to Oklahoma State prior to this season from Junior College and has made an instant impact on the field.

Oklahoma State junior WR Tyreek Hill had a 92-yard punt return for a touchdown in Saturday's 38-35 overtime win over Oklahoma

Oklahoma State had been hanging tough with the Sooners throughout the game when Hill fielded a punt at the eight-yard line with under a minute to go and the Cowboys down 35-28. Rather than signal for the fair catch, Hill took the kick and raced up the sideline untouched for the touchdown. Cue bedlam. Oklahoma State went on to win on a field goal in the extra frame. As a player, Hill has speed to spare, though his future prospects will hinge on whether he can polish up the rest of his game and take those athletic tools beyond the raw components.

Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill had 10 carries for 52 yards in Saturday's loss to Baylor.

It is exceedingly difficult to make an accurate assessment about Hill's pro prospects at this time. Not only is the offensive talent around him mediocre, making it difficult for the shifty runner to find himself in the space his game thrives in, but the prospect himself is far more athletic tools than finished product at this time. Consider his ceiling Tavon Austin, and his floor an effective NFL returner. We won't know which he can become until he gets more help next season.

Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill is "extremely explosive with rare movement skills," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Brugler, however, believes Hill "still needs time to develop in several areas to become a more consistent player and better prospect for the next level." The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Cowboys' prospect has been compared athletically to Percy Harvin and Tavon Austin. To reach those lofty expectations, Hill will need to add strength and clean up the technical aspects of his game.

Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill had 14 carries for 78 yards in Saturday's loss to West Virginia.

He added three catches for 26 yards, one kick return for 14 yards, and three punt returns for five yards. Over the past two games, Oklahoma State's coaches, in an effort to jump-start an atrocious ground attack, have committed to handing the ball off to Hill consistently. His 5.1 YPC average is a far better rate than what his teammates have managed, but not enough to save his draft stock, which has dropped off since peaking after OSU's near upset over Florida State in the opener.

Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill had 11 carries for 52 yards in Saturday's loss to TCU.

Hill is explosive and raw, leaving Cowboys coaches in an ongoing state of experimentation with regards to his usage. Saturday's 11 rushing attempts were a season high, and his one reception equaled a season low. One place everyone agrees he belongs is on special teams, where Hill is a touchdown threat every time he touches the ball. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Cowboys' prospect has been compared to Percy Harvin and Tavon Austin, though he's nowhere near them near in practicality.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 03:23:00 PM

CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill "showcased his eye-popping straight-line speed with a big kickoff return for a touchdown" versus Kansas.

"Just as he did the week previous in a conference showdown with Iowa State, Oklahoma State's Tyreek Hill showcased his eye-popping straight-line speed with a big kickoff return for a touchdown," Rang wrote. The Cowboys prospect had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter which broke a 20-20 tie and ultimately pushed the Cowboys to a victory. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Hill has been compared to Percy Harvin and Tavon Austin, while he is a dangerous return man, he can't be counted on to consistently move the chains on offense.

Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill had four catches for 52 yards in Saturday's 27-20 win against Kansas.

He also had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter which broke a 20-20 tie and ultimately pushed the Cowboys to a victory. At this point in his development, Hill is a dangerous return man who can't be counted on to consistently move the chains on offense. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Cowboys' prospect has been compared to Percy Harvin and Tavon Austin.
