Defensive tackle/tight end Porter Hill (6-4, 275, 4.95) from Compton, Calif., has been quite the attraction this spring. Hill is one of the reasons that Compton high has had a lot of college representatives on campus the last two months.
Hill had an early offer from the Baylor and now the Bears have company as he picked up his second offer.
"Colorado State joined Baylor with an offer," Compton coach Calvin Bryant said. "(Colorado State assistant) Coach Jesse Williams offered both (running back/defensive back) Anthony Wright and Porter."
"Baylor head coach Guy Morriss has been by and Colorado assistant coach Darian Hagan was just by today," Bryant said. "I told you that Colorado offered Anthony (Wright) but it was actually Colorado State. (CU assistant coach) (Darian) Hagan said there is a good chance that they will offer Anthony (Wright) and they are talking about it but it hasn't happened yet."
Both young men could see more offers soon. Besides Baylor Colorado and Colorado State; representatives from USC, UCLA, Cal, Washington State, New Mexico, San Diego State, BYU, Weber State, Utah State, Nevada, Idaho and Nebraska have already been on campus.
In Hill's case the reason why he has received so much recruiting action is he was a standout on both sides of the ball and was even selected all-league as a tight end. His powerful blocking was the reason that he was all-league, but it will be as a defensive tackle that he will earn his scholie.
In an earlier interview with Bryant he had the following to say about Hill.
"Porter is very aggressive and uses his hands well," Bryant said. "He's outstanding at getting off his blocks and making plays. He's a big guy who is excellent in pursuit."
"I think Porter is right there with the best linemen in California," Bryant said. "Though he only played in six games as a defensive tackle for us, it was obvious what position he would play in college."
In Hill's six games as a defensive tackle he racked up 22 tackles and had six tackles for loss. He was also a key blocker for a team that rushed for over 4,000 of yards.
