Michael Hill Is A Buckeye!!!

Pride of the Palmetto State

Looks like the recruiting train is rolling again, as Ohio State picks up its second commitment in two days via the decision of Pendleton South Carolina Defensive Tackle Michael Hill.

Rated as the top player in South Carolina, Mr. Hill also held offers from Florida, LSU, Tennessee, Alabama (where he visited just last weekend), Georgia Tech, and in state powers USCe and Clemson. Rumor has it that he was actually on the road to a visit at Clemson, but turned around and made the call to the staff in Columbus.

The 6’2″ junior made an early June trip to Ohio State with his family, and by all reports came away impressed.  According to his father, he grew up a Buckeye fan, so this is another “homecoming” of sorts.

While many would assume that this is the work of Coach Everett and his Carolina connections, Coach Vrabel is actually the staffer responsible for connecting with Michael and closing the deal on his recruitment. According to Michael’s coach, he’s “down” to 300 pounds, with the agility of a much smaller player- although, you can see that for yourself in the film.

Great work by the coaching staff, and congratulations to this four star student athlete. Welcome to the Buckeye Family, Mr. Hill!!

    With this amazing commitment we seem to be set with a two deep deep line that should stop any running game in the Big Ten for the next 5 years. Maybe one more quality LB and S and we’re looking at a killer D!
    I look forward to seeing Hill plowing through the offensive line.

    He looks like an overpowering force. Some kind of strength and nose for the ball carrier.

    I’m liking the thought of Mike and Joey on the field at the same time in 2014 and on. OH MY is all you can say for opposing teams O-linemen. The B1G is in trouble when OSU’s defense gets back on top (especially the D-line and LBs).
