Tulsa Football Players, Brothers Share Bright Paths
TULSA, Oklahoma - Justice Hill made his mark at Booker T. Washington High School and is making his mark at Oklahoma State University. His younger brother, Dax, appears to be on the same path.
The junior has 12 offers from a who's who of college program.
He's made a rise to one of the top recruits in the nation.
"Just overall, just getting better on defense, I know, coming into my freshman, I didn't really have the technique down, but working with some people, Dwight Dobbins and some other people just talking about technique," Dax said.
"He's going to be fine. He's a competitor. He's going to keep working every day, so, he'll have a great season this year, great season next year and then he'll be off to college," Justice said.
Which, judging by the offers, will be a tough choice.
Any advice, big bro?
"Not any advice. He's just taking it one day at a time, you know, just enjoying the process, so, I just let him do his thing. Every now and again I push him to come here, but nothing serious, so, we'll see how it turns out," Justice said.
"Really don't pay much about it, just keep going, don't let it get to my head and just keep pushing harder," Dax said.
Lot of similarities between Justice and Dax: they're both good athletes, they're both good in the classroom, they both went to Booker T., and they're both soft spoken.
But, who's the better athlete?
I'll let the 1,000-yard rusher from Oklahoma State get the first crack at it.
"I won every time, every basketball game, every football game, I won everything," Justice said.
He says he's better now.
"Ah, I'm going to let him keep thinking that, you know, he needs confidence," Justice said.
"Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm better than him now. During the summer at the opening I ran a 4.46, so, I think I'm faster now," Dax said.
But what does he think about him squatting 500-something pounds?
"Oh yeah, I've seen that on Twitter. That's amazing, I didn't know he could squat that much, so he clearly, beats me in squatting," Dax said.
Well then, outside of squatting, think we've got an answer.
Both look to have bright careers ahead of them.
