Justice Hill’s career at Oklahoma State ends as he announces plans to skip Liberty Bowl, enter NFL draft
Hill, the star running back from Tulsa, will not participate in the Liberty Bowl to “pursue future endeavors,” Mike Gundy announced on Monday.
Larry Williams, OSU’s starting right guard, will also sit out the bowl game.
Hill did not play in OSU’s final two games of the regular season after leaving the Oklahoma game in the first half because of an injury.
By pursuing an NFL career, he will forgo his final season of eligibility.
Williams spent three years at Oklahoma State, coming back for an additional year of eligibility after injuries hindered his first two seasons. He started 20 games over three seasons, including all 12 this year.
Without Hill, Oklahoma State is left with three scholarship running backs — Chuba Hubbard, LD Brown and true freshman Jahmyl Jeter — for the Liberty Bowl against Missouri on Dec. 31.
Williams’ departure could mean an opportunity for Deionte Noel, another senior, in the bowl game.
