Nyck Harbor and Tyreek Hill are two quick athletes. But who's quicker?

South Carolina Gamecocks wide receiver Nyck Harbor has been competing in a different sport recently. Alongside preparing for his sophomore season with the Gamecocks, Harbor has been competing for the track team.

Harbor qualified for the NCAA national meet next month with strong performances at the NCAA East regional on Friday at Lexington, Kentucky. He ran the 100 meters in 10.12 seconds and the 200 in 20.20.

In doing so, Harbor has been compared with current Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill, one of the NFL's quickest players. Hill has also ran track in his career,

How do Hill's times compare with Harbor's?

Nyck Harbor and Tyreek Hill: How do they compare?

Before fully committing to football, Tyreek Hill was a USA Today All-American at Coffee High School in Douglas, Georgia. He won two medals at the 2012 World Junior Athletic Championships, with Hill running the 100 in 10.19 seconds and the 200 in 20.14 seconds.

Nyck Harbor's college time in the 100 was faster than Tyreek Hill's high school time by seven-hundredths of a second. Hill was faster than Harbor in the 200 by six-hundredths of a second.

So, Harbor is one of the quickest wide receivers in college football and potentially in the NFL if he gets that far.

Harbor's running could have an impact on his football career.

Could Nyck Harbor go to the Olympics?

Due to his impressive times for the South Carolina Gamecocks, Nyck Harbor has qualified for the U.S. Nationals, which will be held next month. This will help decide which athletes will represent the country at the 2024 Olympics, which will be held in Paris this summer.

So, Harbor could be representing his country in Paris while the rest of his Gamecocks teammates are preparing for the upcoming season. The Olympics conclude on Aug. 11. South Carolina's first game is Aug. 31. Its Southeastern Conference opener is Sept. 7 against the Kentucky Wildcats.

As a receiver, Harbor, who had 12 catches for 195 yards and a touchdown last season, would need preseason camp for developing timing and chemistry. But he'd still have two weeks to get back in the groove.

"It wouldn't be great from a football standpoint because of the amount of time that he would miss with football," South Carolina coach Shane Beamer said. "But he and I have talked about it. We met in my office at the end of spring practice, and I told him that, 'If you could get a chance to run in the Olympics, that is so cool and something that would be really, really awesome for him and our entire university.'"

To represent one's country at the Olympics Game is the ultimate honor, and is something that Nyck Harbor is close to having the opportunity to do.

Do you think that Harbor will make the U.S. Olympic team and compete in the track events in Paris?
