The question posed to Austin Hill was an easy one.

“What have you been working on this offseason?” It probably should have been: “What haven’t you been working on this offseason?”

“I had lots to work on,” the receiver said. “Quickness, bursting off the line, getting up the field, overall speed, not giving up my routes to the defensive backs and I always try to catch the ball everyday.

“I feel like I got better this offseason.”

That’s certainly good news for the Arizona Wildcats.

If Hill is better than he was in 2012 — look out.

The Corona, Calif., native had 81 catches for 1,364 yards and 11 touchdowns last season as a sophomore. It was the third-most yards in a season in Arizona Wildcats history and the 6-foot-3-inch, 210-pound Hill has two more years of eligibility left.

The Star chatted with Hill about leadership, what he expects this season from defenses and how he was able to adjust to coach Rich Rodriguez’s offense so quickly.
