Jackson was also being pursued heavily by LSU, to be a two-sport Tiger, but one person from TCU helped seal the deal for the Frogs.

“I think I can make decisions faster,” Hill said. “And get us in the right plays in different situations. Those are two things I can get better at.”

"Courtland Sutton, he's a great receiver, but I feel like we play great players every week," TCU linebacker Travin Howard said. "We have great cornerbacks and great safeties around us, that can cover him. So we're just gonna approach this game like we approached Jackson State and Arkansas."
