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.

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.

Oklahoma State junior OW Tyreek Hill had a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in Saturday's win against Iowa State.

After watching Hill be a key offensive contributor in the opener against Florida State, we've been a little concerned to see his usage rates drop precipitously (he's only had even three catches once in four games since then). That being said, watching Hill return kicks is one of the great treats we have as college football fans. He accrued 148 kickoff yards and 46 punt return yards (9.2 YPR) on Saturday. Hill also had nine carries for 22 yards and two catches for five yards. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Cowboys' prospect has been compared to Percy Harvin and Tavon Austin. Physically, the comparisons are apt, but Hill is far more raw than those two were at this point in their careers.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl has been impressed with Oklahoma State junior CB Ashton Lumpkin.

"Lampkin is twitched up and flashes playmaking instincts," Weidl tweeted. In fact, the evaluator has been impressed with Oklahoma State's secondary as a whole, calling them an athletic group. Ex-Cowboy Justin Gilbert was the first corner selected last year, but from all accounts Okie State has not missed him very much defensively.

Oklahoma State junior QB J.W. Walsh underwent surgery on his right foot Thursday morning and is out indefinitely.

That's the bad news. This is the good: "(The injury) is not as severe as what was originally thought," head coach Mike Gundy said on Monday. The Tulsa World reported Walsh is suffering from a soft-tissue injury, and he did not suffer a fracture in his foot in last week's 40-23 win over Missouri State. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound redshirt junior, the Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year in 2012, will give way to redshirt junior Daxx Garman. Stud true freshman Mason Rudolph is now the primary backup, so Garman is advised to start quickly.

Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy said junior QB J.W. Walsh will be kept in a boot until Tuesday, and then his status for the game against UTSA will be decided.

Reports surfaced on Sunday said Walsh suffered a broken foot and was expected to miss six to eight weeks. College programs are not forced to disclose every piece of injury info, so it remains to be seen if Gundy is telling the whole truth here or if the report was bogus. Daxx Garman filled in for an injured J.W. Walsh.

Oklahoma State junior QB J.W. Walsh suffered a broken foot in the school's win over Missouri State, according to 107.7's Sam Mayes.

Mayes is a former Oklahoma State offensive lineman and hosts a mid-morning show. Walsh left the school's game and went directly to the locker room. He later returned on crutches. Redshirt junior Daxx Garman filled in for Walsh and did so at a high level.

Oklahoma State JUCO OW transfer Tyreek Hill had eight carries for 62 yards in Saturday's 40-23 win against Missouri State.

Hill had only one reception for two yards. He added a 37-yard punt return. Don't sweat the off-afternoon -- the Cowboys' new 5-foot-10, 185-pound weapon didn't need to take any more punishment than necessary against a sub-division team. In a game that mattered big -- last week's loss to Florida State -- Hill had six catches for 62 yards and eight carries for 44 yards. That performance got Hill onto Rob Rang's Big Board at No. 31 this week.
Sep 6 - 8:10 PM

Oklahoma State QB J.W. Walsh exited the school's game against Missouri State to get X-rays on his lower body.

Walsh limped off the field after scoring a touchdown and went to the locker room. He later returned to the sideline on crutches. Redshirt junior Daxx Garman will fill in for Walsh. He has never attempted a pass for the Cowboys.
Sep 6 - 4:17 PM

Oklahoma State JUCO OW transfer Tyreek Hill made his debut on Rob Rang's Big Board at No. 31 this week.

"Hill, a JUCO transfer and track star, has played just one D-I game, so it may seem premature to list him here," Rang wrote. "That one game, of course, was the season-opener against Florida State in which Hill dashed through and around the defending champs for 278 all-purpose yards as a running back, receiver and returner. Raw? Sure, but explosiveness like this is rare." The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Cowboys' prospect has been compared to Percy Harvin and Tavon Austin.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Oklahoma State JUCO OW transfer Tyreek Hill has "adios speed" and is "impressed with his movement skills."

"Re-watching Florida State vs. Oklahoma State, RB/WR Tyreek Hill has adios speed. Very impressed with his movement skills, plays at a different speed than everyone," Brugler tweeted. The 5-foot-10, 185 pound Hill produced 278 all-purpose yards in Oklahoma State's season-opening loss to Florida State. The Cowboys prospect flashed on tape, showing amazing quickness and elusiveness, and should be an exciting player to keep an eye in the Big 12 this season.
Sep 2 - 10:36 AM

NFL.com named Oklahoma State JUCO OW transfer Tyreek Hill was named by NFL.com as the Big 12's best preseason breakout candidate.

Cowboys' HC Mike Gundy told reporters last month that Hill will receive 15-20 touches per game, and he's expected to play an offensive role similar to Percy Harvin and Tavon Austin. "The junior college transfer might be the fastest player in the Big 12 and brings plenty of talent to a team that is lacking playmakers," wrote staff writer Bryan Fischer. "Think Tavon Austin at West Virginia from a few years ago in terms of impact."

The NCAA has changed its ruling on Oklahoma State's APR score, and they will now avoid practice restrictions.

The NCAA had previously said Oklahoma State fell just below the APR limit of 930 to "pass" the penalty area. The school apparently found a football player from the 1990's who went back to school and recently graduated, taking them over the threshold. Oklahoma State has not disclosed the athlete's name.
Jul 29 - 1:36 PM

Oklahoma State freshman RB Devon Thomas will not join the team.

The 18-year-old was charged with five felonies in the offseason, including shooting with the intent to kill, robbery with a firearm and first-degree burglary. Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy was asked about Thomas and refused to mention him by name. Instead, he said: "The roster that we handed out today are the players that will report next week. And if there’s a player that’s not on that roster, then he’s not a part of our team." It's very possible that the three-star recruit's football career is over.
