SoCal corner up to nine

Troyhill7 7200
Three-star cornerback Troy Hill (5-11, 165, 4.5) from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure is steadily rising up the charts and is considered one of the best corners in the Golden State for the class of 2010. That is something because there are quite a few solid corners in this class.
Hill primarily plays corner, but will also line up and some action as a wide receiver this fall.
As a junior, Hill earned all-league and all-county from his cornerback spot after picking off seven passes, one of which he returned for a touchdown.
On the recruiting front, Hill has nine offers from the likes of Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Washington State, Iowa State, Wisconsin, Marshall, Boise State and Utah State.
"Everyone has expressed interest in Troy," St. Bonaventure coach Todd Therrian said. "He is a fast twitch guy and as a great feel for the game. He plays the ball as well as anybody I have seen and he will come up and hit you.
"Troy is a very smart football player and he understands the corner position as well as anyone in the country," Therrian said. "Oregon put him through a test to gauge his football knowledge and they came away very impressed.
"Troy is a great kid who works very hard," Therrian said. "He has a chance, he gets to the college level, to even play at the pro level.
"To put it simply, Troy is a lockdown cover corner who has the ability to close down a his whole side of the field."
According the Therrian, Hill is on schedule to be a full qualifier, putting another feather in his cap.
More than likely Hill will slow the recruiting process down some, but if there were any leaders, Arizona and Washington could be at the top.
Hill also has outstanding bloodlines as his brother was a four-star linebacker recruit Taylor Hill from Youngstown (Ohio) Cardinal Mooney, who signed with Michigan in the class of 2008.
