Hill expects to make two-deep as a true frosh

Canes defensive back signee Ryan Hill attended the first week-and-a-half of Miami's spring practice.

"I was in the meetings, was there every day at practice," he said. "I learned a couple of blitzes, how the program is going to be run. That was a real boost for me — knowing what you're going into is better than not knowing."

Hill isn't a guy who lacks confidence.

He sees himself emerging on the two-deep and possibly as a starter in the fall

"I'm looking at right cornerback right now — I'm more familiar with that, and I think coach (Tim) Walton wants me to play that," Hill said. "I expect to be in the two deep as soon as I step foot outside my house. I feel I work hard, have the potential. I feel like I can start right away.
