SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #49 is BYU’s Keanu Hill (WR).

Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).

“Keanu Hill, reciever, long body, big body, very physical, came on the scene with some injuries that we experienced at receiver last year but has all the ability to be a great one,” BYU head coach Kalani Sitake said of his wide receiver.

BYU’s Keanu Hill

Hill is a sophomore from Bedford, Texas.

He attended Trinity High School, where he helped them to a 10-2 record and was named all-district in 2017 and 2018. Hill earned the Trinity team Receiver of the Year award in 2017. He also played basketball in high school. His father Lloyd was an All-American at Texas Tech and played for the Chicago Bears in the NFL. Hill’s uncle Roy Williams played for the Dallas Cowboys.

He received recruiting interest from Wyoming and Texas A&M at Commerce.

In three seasons with BYU, Hill has appeared in 24 games, hauling in 25 receptions for 453 yards and three touchdowns. During the 2021 season, Hill had 18 catches for 343 yards and two TD’s in 13 games played for the Cougars.

The Bedford, Texas native is majoring in Chemistry at BYU.

Hill is the third BYU player to appear on the top 60 in 60 list in 2022, joining fullback Houston Heimuli (No. 54) and offensive lineman Harris LaChance (No. 50). He is the first wide receiver to appear on the list in 2022.
