Highland Springs, Va. cornerback Cris Hill recently took in a visit to Virginia. The 5-foot-11, 166-pounder had a good stop through Charlottesville with teammate C.J. Fleming.
"He echoed many of the same things that C.J. did," Highland Springs head coach Scott Burton said. "He clearly was impressed by the trip, particularly because the coaches know what they want out of their players and don't beat around the bush. He really liked the fact that Mike Groh was upfront."
Currently Hill holds 15 offers from a variety of schools.

"Basically Cris and C.J. have all the same offers with the exception of Cris having Michigan and Ohio State," he said. "I think the main difference between them right now is that Cris is a more academically stable and he probably brings a little more to the table as a cornerback. He has great athleticism that has attracted a lot of people that he's a blue-chip recruit.
"He still hasn't mentioned anything about favorites. I also don't know of any visits coming up this summer. He hasn't really talked about that."
Hill earned second team all-district honors last season for the Springers.
"The sky is the limit for him athletically because he is a smooth and consistent performer," he stated. "He constantly is getting better and better and is probably one of the best athletes I've coached here. I can see it in his eyes that he is focused and is going to be something special.
"On top of that, Cris is a very low key and humble kid. That is truly a compliment on his upbringing because his parents are very grounded and you can see that in him."
