Humble (Texas) had their best season in quite some time after dropping down to Class 4A this past year. The Wildcat defense was a big reason the team finished with a 12-2 record and a spot in the regional final. They had one of the best defensive lines in the Houston area and it was primarily made up of underclassmen.
While tackles Paul Boyette Jr., a Texas commit, and Zorrell Ezell have received quite a bit of attention so far, defensive end Kyndahl Hill is also a standout for the Wildcats. Recently the 6-foot-6, 205-pound junior received his first offer.
"I got an offer from K State," Hill said. "They offered me sometime late last month. They came to my school. They had been sending me stuff and they had come once before so it wasn't too big of a shock when they offered. They also offered Zorrell and Paul."
Hill feels other programs could soon follow suit.
"I think some others might be close to offering me too," he said. "I'm getting a lot of stuff from Arizona."
Though he has not yet visited Kansas State, Hill has been on visits to two in-state schools so far this spring.
"I went to a junior day at U of H and a junior day at UT," he said. "They both went well. At Houston they just talked to me for a little while, asked me some questions and then they said they would keep in contact with me."
Hill says two Big 12 programs stand out at the moment.
"I'd say kind of," he said as to having any favorites. "UT and Oklahoma, those are two schools I like right now. Oklahoma is sending me a lot of letters but that's about it right now."
Hill has to make more than just a decision on where to continue his playing career, though. He also must decide in which sport he will do so.
"I'm getting recruited for basketball too," he said. "UTA offered me over the summer and other schools are looking at me as well. I'm going to have to decide later to see which one I'm going to play in college."
Hill earned second-team all-district honors after tallying 29 tackles, six sacks, three interceptions, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble in 2010.
