The most recent of Detroit Cass Tech four-star class of 2016 cornerback LaVert Hill's eight offers came in late July after he worked out at Ohio State's Friday Night Lights Camp.
"Coach (Kerry) Coombs said I did pretty good and he liked me a lot," Hill said. "After the camp he extended me an offer and said he liked my technique."
Hill made the trip to Ohio State with several of his teammates, including class of 2015 defensive lineman Joshua Alabi, who committed to the Buckeyes on that visit. Hill also came away impressed with what he saw of the campus and program.
"It is one of the best campuses I have seen so far," Hill said. "They are pretty good - they keep winning, and I would like to go to a winning program."
Ohio State also brought in former Cass Tech cornerback Damon Webb in the 2014 class, who helped bring Hill along last season.
"I will be watching him a lot because if I go up there I know he will be there with me," Hill said. "I talked to him and he said so far it is going pretty good."
Hill's brother, Delano, signed with Michigan in the 2013 class and the Wolverines have also offered. He attended the barbeque recruiting event in Ann Arbor two days after Ohio State's camp.
"It was pretty fun doing the race," Hill said. "I got to talk to the coaches and they told me to just keep working. I like the tradition of the school."
Hill does not have any direct connections at Penn State, but a camp appearance in State College earned him an offer from the Nittany Lions and he came away impressed with that school as well.
"I had never been there before, and it is a pretty good campus," Hill said. "I liked the coaches - they were pretty cool. Coach (Charles) Huff, the recruiting coordinator, I talked to him. He was just finding out about me and seeing how I was doing."
Hill plans to see Penn State this fall when they travel to Michigan for a game in October. He also plans to attend a game at Michigan State on Oct. 25 and one at Ohio State on Nov. 29.
"I will really watch their defense to see the things they do," Hill said. "Then, I'll watch the atmosphere and just enjoy everything."
No timetable for a college decision has been determined, and Hill is still open to hearing from new schools.
