Four-star cornerback Ryan Hill out of Tallahassee (Fla.) Rickards already scheduled an official to Miami on January 20th. The 6-foot-0, 178-pounder has scheduled two more trips. Who has the Hill decided on and why?
"I've scheduled an official to Ohio State for December 2nd," he said. "I like the atmosphere there as they play in front of 100,000 people every game. They also play good teams every week and I could potentially play both ways and get national exposure. It's just a great university and coach Haynes is a really good guy who not only wants to help me in football, but also in life and I admire that.
"I'm also planning to most likely take an official to Southern Cal on January 6th. I don't know too much about them, but I believe they'll probably offer me in the next week. I know they need defensive backs and they are a great team in a wonderful environment."
Hill confirmed that he plans to take his fourth official sometime in January to Alabama. Florida State and Tennessee are battling it out for the Rivals100 prospect's last visit.
"Tennessee has really moved up," he said. "I like their tradition and coach Washington as I have a great relationship with him. They also sell out crowds and I love the SEC atmosphere."
Miami continues to lead for Hill's services.
"I saw their loss the other night to Georgia Tech and I almost cried," he said. "It was tough to watch, but I understand that they only have 16 seniors on the team so it'll be ok. It just proves that if you're playing in the ACC it's tough and if you don't come to play, other teams can take you down."
The No. 6 cornerback in the country finished his senior season with Rickard a couple weeks back.
"I finished with 43 tackles, three interceptions, five blocked kicks, 26 receptions, 630 yards and eight touchdowns," he said. "I didn't expect to come out with eight touchdowns this year, but this has really caused me to want to play both ways in college. I had a lot of fun this season and I could tell my hands got better especially catching the ball on offense.
"Now I'm looking forward to the Florida-California game and hoping I make it to the U.S. Army All-American game. I'm hoping and praying I can play in that game."
