How'd He Get to College Park?
Hills, as Pete noted in his clue for Hills, played football and wrestled in high school. He attended the same high school as DB Anthony Nixon. Hills committed to Maryland in June of 2011.
Hills was recruited by several MAC schools, including Buffalo and Kent State, but committed to Maryland in June of 2011.
Tossing a 53-yard touchdown to Stefon Diggs vs. Iowa.
Hills wins the backup job and starts a few games, completing 60% of his passes and compiling a 2:1 TD to INT ratio.
Hills will likely be third on the depth chart this season behind Caleb Rowe and Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman. If Hills has to come into a game, it will likely be because of an injury to Rowe or Garman.
With Garman transferring in and being eligible immediately, Hills moves into more of a reserve role for Maryland this season. Hills has certainly shown flashes of his potential, especially during 2012 when he played in seven games before suffering an ACL injury during Maryland's infamous QB plagued season.
After Hills redshirted in 2013, he only attempted 10 passes last season. He could beat out Garman for the backup job, but most likely, he'll be third on the QB depth chart this Fall. If Hills does have to play this season, hopefully it will be because Maryland has a huge lead, not because of injuries to Rowe and Garman.
Our next player might have a secret life as a Batman villain.
