ATLANTA - For Stephen Hill, there's no escaping the expectations.
At 6-foot-5, he towers over the cornerbacks assigned to defend him. He's faster than most of them, too. You know, another Calvin Johnson - or at least the second coming of Demaryius Thomas.
Maybe it's finally working out that way.
Hill is off to a fast start for Georgia Tech (2-0), providing the sort of deep-play threat that was missing during his sophomore season. He worked out harder in the weight room, focused more on his classwork and got rid of some negative influences in his personal life.
The results are obvious. Hill already has as many touchdowns (three) and more receiving yards (307) than he had all of last season. He's averaging nearly 44 yards per catch heading into Saturday's game against Kansas.
