Well when it rains it pours around here for recruiting news. After a few months of no news we have our 3rd commit in the last week. This one is a highly sought after recruit that brings a lot to the table and comes from an area of the country we dont recruit a lot or very hard in the past. With Urban Meyer on staff and a philosophy to go anywhere and everywhere to get the guys who they want the most we will end up with a lot more guys like this one.
Michael Hill is a 6’3″ 315 lbs 4 star DT from Pendleton, South Carolina. He is a consensus 4 star and the no. 1 recruit in the state by most. Rivals has him listed as the 5th best DT and 89th overall best prospect in the country. ESPN has him as the 229th best player in the country. 247sports has him at 197. Scouts lists him as the 14th best DT. Michael Hill possess the kind of athleticism you dont normally see in a DT of his size. He is quick off the ball and has the motor to keep going and pursuing on every play. He needs to work on his strength and techniques but thats why you go to OSU to get better at both those things. You can see his highlight video below.
