New, comment

In which BracketCat counts down the 13th day until the 2016 kickoff with a profile of quarterback Wykeen Gill.

A running quarterback named Gill? Makes me think of this guy in his prime. No relation, though.

Projection: Redshirt

Status: Walk-On

Wykeen Gill Jr. is a walk-on dual-threat quarterback from Atchison High School, where he also starred as a point guard. You can watch his high school highlights here and here. I wasn't able to find out much about him, though.

As a junior, Gill accounted for more than 1,100 yards of total offense and 16 touchdowns for Atchison. He had three 100-yard rushing games in 2014 and averaged nearly 6 yards per carry. I wasn't able to find his 2015 statistics.

It's interesting to see what opponents think: "He (Gill) has great athleticism and speed. He can make big plays even if you're doing every thing correct fundamentally," said Pleasant Ridge High School head coach Pat McCollim.

"We need all 11 guys running to the football and to do all we can to get the ball out of his hands as fast as we can."
