Dodge City (Kan.) Community College cornerback Reynaldo Hill is one of the top cornerbacks in the junior college ranks and will likely enter the 2003 season as a preseason All-American.
Hill, a 6-foot-1, 182-pounder, earned second-team All-Jayhawk Conference honors as a freshman after grabbing three interceptions on the year.
"When I went down to recruit him in Florida, I kind of knew because of his size that after a year of junior college in this conference he was going to attract some big names," said Andy Siegal, assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator at Dodge City. "He's got classic corner size. He's over 6-foot, and flat-out speed.
"You can't coach speed, and you can't coach size. He's got two things that you just can't coach. And he's a tough kid. I'm surprised more people aren't recruiting him."
Hill is a national qualifier in both the 4x100 relay and 200 meters, boasting a No. 5 national ranking in the 200, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds.
"I've ran 4.1s on a hand clock, but I haven't run on an electric clock yet," Hill said of his summer workouts. "I'm waiting to run electronic. On a hand clock, with track shoes on the track, and I consistently ran 4.18s and 4.16s. Most people won't believe that."
"Renaldo is more of a gambling corner," he said. "Renaldo's going to go for the big play. Deion Sanders. Flashy. Sometimes he's going to go for the interception instead of going for the safe pass break-up. And his personality is the same way. He's outgoing, smiling all the time, always having a good time.
