Hill running to more offers

The class of 2010 is already looking to be on of the most talented in recent memory. Over half a dozen players already have scholarship offers. One of the prospects that already has multiple Division 1 offers is Nick Hill of Chelsea High School. SpartanMag.com spoke with the 5-foot-8, 180-pound prospect last night and has the latest.

Hill and his Chelsea team are off to a solid start to the season. This weekend they will play an undefeated Adrian School, which will likely determine the conference championship. Adrian is led by 2009 defensive end recruit Dylan Farrington. Hill, who is now back to 100% after a bruised thigh slowed him down is looking forward to the challenge.

"I am excited about going against Adrian and Dylan Farrington," he said. "It should be a great challenge."

As far as recruiting, even though it is still early, Hill has been hearing from plenty of schools.

"I have been hearing from all the Big Ten schools a lot. I also have heard from schools in the PAC 10, Big 12, ACC and Notre Dame. I already have offers from Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Stanford"

Have you had a chance to visit any schools this fall?

Yes, I have been to a couple of Michigan games," Hill said. "I have also been to Michigan State and I went to see Notre dame as well. I am going down to Notre Dame this weekend."

Hill indicted that growing up so close to Ann Arbor is was only natural to become a Michigan fan. He has followed the Wolverines fro quite some time and already has a good rapport with Coach Fred Jackson. However as far as recruiting goes Hill indicated the he is keeping things very open?

"When it comes to recruiting, I have an open mind. I am just trying to get better every week. I am going to keep working hard and I will consider any school that offers me a scholarship. After that I will narrow things down," he said.

On of the knocks on Hill is his size. However, his size could actually benefit him at the next level. FAU Coach Howard Snellenberger told the media how difficult it was to see a smaller back like Javon Ringer running behind a big line. Hill believes his size coupled with his skill will be an asset at he next level.

"My quickness, speed and my ability to bust through the hole. I also like to run hard and break tackles," Hill said. "I know lots of smaller running backs are making an impact in college and the NFL."

Hill indicated that Spartan running back Coach Dan Enos has been in frequent contact with him. Coaches cannot call juniors right now, but they can stay in contact via correspondence.

With Spartan Head Coach Mark Dantonio being dedicated to establishing a dominant rushing attack, it would not be a surprise if the Spartans continue to recruit Hill as one of the top prospect in Michigan for the class of 2010.
