Nebraska recruited Hill when he was a prospect, and I always really liked the way he played. Now, he is in the fold. As a recruit, Hill was a four-star prospect. He was the 11th overall athlete in the 2021 class, and the 32nd overall player in his class from the state of Florida per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He committed to Arizona State on July 15, 2020.
Hill brings experience to the secondary. He only played for Arizona State for one season. He appeared in 11 games in 2021, recording nine total tackles.
Hill will be immediately eligible.
A good get for Nebraska
This is a massive commitment for Nebraska football. They are going to be losing a lot of veteran talent next season, and Hill could certainly close the gap. He has great coverage skills, and is able to track the ball with ease. In addition to his coverage skills, he also has speed. Hill is going to be able to bring a tremendous athletic talent to the Nebraska football secondary.
More and more, we are seeing the need for skilled cover corners in the Big Ten. Hill definitely brings that to the table. He has the potential to be a shutdown corner, and that’s exactly what Nebraska football needs. With the way that defensive coordinator Erik Chinander has figured out how to utilize his personnel, he will definitely put Hill in the best position possible.
I can’t wait to see who else commits to the Nebraska football program. Secondary is a huge need for Nebraska football, and they partly filled it with this commitment. Not only are they getting a good corner, they are getting a player who has college football experience. This is definitely a win for Scott Frost and the Nebraska football coaching staff.
With Early Signing Day Wednesday, we should definitely see more names coming in. As for now, Hill is definitely a major get.
