How will Hilinski fare in his first collegiate action? There are high expectations for the 4-star quarterback who was the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class and the No. 12 overall recruit from the state of California, per the 247Sports composite.
Tune in to the SEC Network at noon Eastern time to watch the young freshman in action.
