TULSA, Okla. — Former Tulsa football star Dax Hill is headed to Cincinnati.

The Bengals picked Dax Hill, a Booker T. Washington alum, with the 31st overall pick in Thursday's NFL Draft.

Hill played three seasons of college football at Michigan, splitting time at safety and slot corner, and also saw some snaps on special teams. He allowed only two touchdowns in coverage for the Wolverines.

He ran a 4.38 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine.

Hill is one of three Michigan players who landed on the 2021 All-Big Ten Defense First Team. That defense led the Wolverines to a conference title and an appearance in the College Football Playoff.
