·1 min read

Former Tennessee quarterback Kasim Hill and Rhode Island defeated Stony Brook, 35-14, Thursday in Week 1.

Hill completed 17-of-32 passing attempts for 236 yards and two touchdowns. He recorded one rushing touchdown in the season-opening contest.

The 6-foot-2, 234-pound Hill transferred to Tennessee from Maryland. He redshirted with the Vols in 2019.

During his time at Tennessee, Hill was an integral member of the Vols’ scout team. He had to sit out the 2019 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Hill started the first 10 games of the 2018 season for Maryland before suffering an ACL injury in his left knee. He appeared in three games, starting two contests, in 2017 as a freshman. Hill’s freshman season ended due to a torn ACL in his right knee.

Below are Hill’s statistics during his career at Rhode Island since 2020 in 15 games.
