Word had begun to spread like wildfire over the weekend. Word was that Alief (Texas) Elsik tight end Tony Hills, the top player in Texas, had blown out his ACL.
Well, Hills got some good news earlier this afternoon.
"It's not torn and there are no broken bones," very relieved Hills said. "I'm very glad that the news wasn't bad. I'm disappointed that I went down, but I'm going to be all right. There was nothing really bad other than it still hurts."
Hills said that he is now able to go ahead and focus on the recruiting process and that might begin with an official visit this weekend.
"I've not set up anything official," he said. "But coach Drake from Texas was here today and he was trying to get me to come up there for their banquet. I'm not sure yet, but I think I might do that."
Hills said he also entertained LSU coach Nick Saban and coach Dooley on Sunday.
"Coach Saban is a really nice guy," Hills, who is 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds, said. "He talked about how they could use me in their offense and how I could be a difference maker and compliment their receiver. I think his name is Clayton."
Colorado, Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee and Texas Tech are the teams that Hills said he's still considering.
"I should have my trips beginning to firm up later this week or next," he said.
