The thing was, nobody seemed to notice the ball except Hill, who casually walked over to pick it up. Then he just ran before the Jayhawks knew what to do.

“By the way, KU’s record when I was being recruited was 1-9,” Jaynes said. “You can recruit here, but you have to work at it. If Terry hadn’t followed up, I would have gone to Alabama and been the greatest third-string quarterback in the history of Alabama football. My point is, when people say you can’t recruit at Kansas, I don’t believe it.”

Highly coveted Class of 2017 point guard Collin Sexton, the No. 7-ranked prospect in the class, according to Rivals.com, recently talked with Jerry Meyer of 247 Sports about his visits with Alabama and Kansas.

The name is not his alone, however, as another Ken Bone may have found out. This Ken Bone was the basketball coach at Washington State from 2009-2014 and was the associate head coach at Montana from 2014-16.
If Tennessee were to have fumbled that ball at the 50-yard line -- or anywhere else on the field between the goal lines -- and it goes out of bounds without the defense recovering it, the offense keeps the ball.
