Arizona State running back Hakim Hill says he is focused on the future as he gets set for Saturday’s game against the Iowa Hawkeyes in Kinnick Stadium. The brother of former Hawkeye Kahlill Hill grew up in Iowa City and like so many other kids in the area grew up cheering for the black and gold. He says he played for City High Friday night and then woke up Saturday and went and watched his brother play.Hakim was a standout at City High but had two run-ins with the law his senior year, including a drunk driving charge, and was not offered a scholarship by the Iowa coaching staff. He says he’s looking toward his future and everything in the past is over and done with and taken care of. Hill says he has no hard feelings toward Iowa City. The redshirt sophomore had 12 carries for 57 yards in the 16th-ranked Sun Devils’ win over Utah State last weekend but has been a standout on special teams. He says they have five great tailbacks and however he can get on the field he’ll do it. Hill knows several members of the Iowa team and played at City High with Brian Ferentz and Calvin Davis. He says Davis is one of his best friends and it will be good to seem him and some of the other players on the team after growing up with them.
