He was fast. Blazing fast, especially in the open field, with an element of power in the way he ran at Texas A&M. And then it never showed during the Seahawks’ Super Bowl run.

Jazz point guard Trey Burke raced into the frontcourt on Monday against the Milwaukee Bucks. Seeing a closed lane, he slid off a pick from Rudy Gobert and swung the ball to Dante Exum. The rookie immediately passed to Rodney Hood, who had an open shot if he wanted it. But he passed up the good look, took two dribbles into the lane and gave it to Malcolm Thomas. At this point, Thomas could have gone up strong, and nobody would have batted an eye.

Why not? Hill was outstanding last season, when he rushed and passed for nearly 3,000 yards and led the Cougars to an 8-5 record, despite the transition to offensive coordinator Robert Anae’s high-speed system. With another year of experience, greater things are expected from Hill and — by extension — the BYU offense. Hill sounds ready for the challenge of the new season, which ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.
