The highly touted recruit has yet to play a single down for Oklahoma State, but he's already setting school records.

A consensus four star recruit, Tyreek Hill was a major boon to Oklahoma State's 2014 recruiting class, but before stepping foot on the football field he's already breaking records in track.

Hill competed in the Tyson Invitational last Friday where he broke an Oklahoma State school record, and he did it twice.

The 60 meter prelim was Hill's first race donning America's brightest orange, and he wasted no time breaking records. Tyreek posted a school record time of 6.67.

Shortly after that, he did it again! Tyreek shaved 0.02 seconds off his time in the semi finals, putting up a 6.65. Hill repeated his record setting time in the finals, and finished 4th overall.

Yep, he's fast.

"I was very impressed with Tyreek’s performance for his first meet, considering how competitive the field was," OSU sprints coach Diego Flaquer said via okstate.com  "For him to be so competitive against these guys at the top of the 60 meter list only means he will get sharper as the season goes on. He is ready to work and build on what we started here."

I have a feeling Tyreek isn't done putting his name in the record books.

Hill wasn't the only Cowboy in the 60 meter finals. John Teeters finished 7th with a time of 6.72.
