Running back Justice Hill became the first Oklahoma State player to have his name called in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Baltimore Ravens used the the 11th pick of the fourth round to select the standout back.

Hill was Oklahoma’s Division II Offensive Player of the Year as a senior for Tulsa’s Booker T. Washington High School. High School success landed him at Oklahoma State with a slew of expectations that he was more than up for meeting.

He started in 10 of 13 games his first year in Stillwater, which allowed him to become the nation’s leading freshman rusher, a Freshman All-American selection, and the Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year. The next season he led the Big 12 with 268 carries, 1,467 rushing yards (5.5 per), and 15 rushing touchdowns to earn first-team All-Big 12 honors.

In 2018 he was a first-team All Big 12 selection once again, leading him to the decision to forgo his final year of college and enter the NFL Draft.
