Three-star Smiths (Ala.) defensive lineman and one time
Michael Hill says he's given his
new verbal to Florida.
"I've decided to be a Florida Gator," said Hill, a
member of the Rivals.com
Alabama Top 30 team and one of
the top-rated defensive tackles in the South. "Their depth chart at DT and the
opportunity to come in with a great recruiting class and win a national
championship were the main factors. It's a nice environment down there, too. I love the campus and the whole atmosphere."
Hill (6-2, 270, 4.8) picked the Gators over Alabama, Ole
Miss and South Carolina. He visited the Gamecocks this weekend and said he enjoyed the trip, but it wasn't enough to top Gainesville and the Gators.
