MotSaG Chat with Justin Hilliard

justin-2015I recently had the chance to interview the top prospect in Ohio for 2015 and one of the top LBers in the entire country. Justin Hilliard is a High 4 star Linebacker from Cincinnati, Ohio. He is one of the best players in the country and holds offers from Ohio State, TTUN, Notre Dame, Miami of FL., Texas A&M, and many others. 247sports ranks him a 4 star and the 43rd best recruit in the country. ESPN ranks him a 4 star and the 145th best recruit in the country for 2015. This kid is being recruited hard by many of the top schools and his skill set is one that is coveted by everyone. Based on his interview below though you can argue he has no favorite at this point and that his recruiting is wide open. Being an Ohio resident doesn’t seem to give Ohio State the inside track as he has moved all over. Most experts are predicting him to follow his brother to Iowa which sounds crazy but could very well happen. Here is the interview I had with him and I want to thank him for taking the time to do this interview with us.
