Bobo says Collin Hill is way ahead of schedule with his rehab process

Following Colorado State football's 11th practice of fall camp, head coach Mike Bobo announced that quarterback Collin Hill is ahead of schedule with his rehab process after tearing his ACL for a second time and having surgery last March. 

Bobo explained that five practices ago, Hill started taking snaps from under center, taking drops and generally moving around the pocket. Then on Monday, Hill began working in the 11-on-11 reps, but only took snaps out of the shotgun. Today, Hill took a few reps from unter center in the 11-on-11 drills and is gradually working towards getting cleared for full contact. 

"He's gradually working himself back in there," Bobo said according to "I think he looks good, (he is) throwing the ball good... (He is) maybe still a little hesitant in the pocket, but there was a time today where he had to step over and step up... I thought he was moving well. I think he's way ahead of schedule and he looks good, but he's continued to get sprinkled in there and get some team reps."

Hill played in five games as a true freshman in 2016, starting three. In those games, Hill completed 75-of-129 passes for 1,096 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions, before suffering a season-ending knee injury in October 2016. 

It is unknown if Hill will be fully cleared by the time the Rams host Hawaii on Aug. 25 but it is clear that the coaching staff has been pleased with the effort that Hill has put in this summer. Earlier in fall camp, Bobo said of Hill, "When you talk about the kind of people you want your kids to look up to, that's him."
