BYU football notebook: Quarterback Taysom Hill emerging as a team leader

Published: Saturday, March 23 2013 8:20 p.m. MDT

Taysom Hill signed with Stanford and then-head coach Jim Harbaugh out of high school before deciding to transfer to BYU following his LDS mission service. Harbaugh, who now coaches the San Francisco 49ers, was in town this week on a speaking engagement and made a point to meet up with former signee.

“We still have a great relationship and we had a great relationship when he was recruiting me,” Hill said. “We got close and it’s a relationship that will last from here on out. He didn’t blame me for (transferring) even though he was aware of everything that transpired — I think he wanted to see me at Stanford, however.”
