Georgia keeps Rivals 100 OL Trey Hill home

Florida State fought to stay in this race, but it truly came down to Auburn and Georgia with the in-state Bulldogs winning out for Trey Hill in the end.

It was a battle.

Hill has visited Auburn and Georgia close to double-digit times each and he has a connection with each coaching staff. Having to tell Auburn no had Hill emotional.

After the official visit to Georgia, Auburn met with Hill and after prayer Sunday night, Hill came to the conclusion that he wanted to be a Bulldog.

"It was a very tough decision," said Hill. "It was very close, but I want to be a Bulldog. The family environment at Georgia, what Kirby Smart is doing there and how my parents felt played a role in my decision.

"It was not easy."

The 6-foot-4, 330 pound four-star offensive guard out of Warner Robinson (Ga.) Houston County feels relieved now that he has made his decision.

He is signing with Georgia next week then enrolling in January to begin his Bulldog career and he feels good about the future.

"I am excited about what lies ahead at Georgia. To see what coach Smart has done and to know the coaches that are there and the community that it there, that is exciting."

This race came down to the wire for one of the best in the country. Auburn and Georgia gave it their best shot, but in the end Hill decided to stay home and play between the hedges.
