Deacon Hill had a brief run with the Wisconsin Badgers, but he was recruited out of high school as a four-star quarterback. After appearing in one game, he decided to redshirt his season, and entered the transfer portal to commit to the Iowa Hawkeyes earlier this year.
Wisconsin Legend, Deacon Hill.

Former Wisconsin Badgers QB Gets into the Game
In his redshirt Sophomore season for the Iowa Hawkeyes, Deacon Hill isn’t the starting quarterback. He’s behind Cade McNamara for those honors. The Iowa Hawkeyes had a tough game where they lost 31-0 to the Penn State Nittany Lions. Both QBs appeared, and both of them, quite frankly, sucked. McNamara went 5 for 14 for 42 yards, and Deacon Hill went 1 for 2 for 14 yards. Unfortunately, the former Wisconsin Badgers commit was part of a turn over after taking over for McNamara and didn’t quite prove he was a better fit.
Another turnover by Iowa as backup QB Deacon Hill fumbles. Amin Vanover comes up with the sack-fumble and it’s recovered by Zuriah Fisher. That’s 4 fumbles recovered by the Nittany Lions tonight

Needless to say, there were calls for Deacon Hill to be the starting quarterback from now on, and there were calls by fans on social media that Deacon Hill wasn’t that great.
If Deacon Hill leads a touchdown drive here, I can’t wait for some fans on here to clamor for him to start next week against Michigan State.

Deacon Hill, please. At least in theory he’ll be on the roster next year.
