It's rare for a football player from San Diego State to get praise nowadays.

Ronnie Hillman, apparently, never got the memo.

The freshman running back has been putting up monster numbers against solid teams like Missouri and Air Force.  Let's take a look at what he's done so far:

  • No. 10 in the country in yards per game: 113.3
  • Hillman has accumulated 905 yards on 157 carries, good enough for 5.76 yards a carry.
  • 11 TDs.

Where does he stand?

Hillman has better statistics in every category, except TDs, than Wisconsin RB John Clay and Oregon State RB Jacquizz Rodgers.

In his season- and career-high performance against Missouri, Hillman ran for 235 with two TDs.

Against San Diego State's two ranked opponents so far, Hillman has rushed for 430 yards and four TDs.

Ronnie Hillman is a dynamic back who possesses the ability to make pro-style cuts upfield. Look for him to shine in the next three weeks, as SDSU has tough games against TCU and Utah.

Ronnie Hillman could be on a larger scale by then, depending on what transpires.
