K.J. Hill Still Motivating Chris Olave, Darnay Holmes Praises Kerry Coombs, Several Ohio State Players Stand Out on Final Day of Practices

MOBILE, Alabama – Even though his Ohio State career is now over, K.J. Hill is still finding ways to motivate his former Buckeye teammates.

One recent example came when Pro Football Focus published an article that listed Chris Olave as the 10th-best wide receiver returning to college football next season. Hill sent the link to that article to Olave with a message to “just go work at it,” and Olave took that message to heart.

Not good enough. Back to work.

Asked whether he believes Olave, who led the Buckeyes with 49 receptions for 849 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, can be the best receiver in college football in 2020, Hill’s response was succinct.
