George Hill is Number One For 2016

In a non-surprise move to many, George Hill has become the first commitment for the class of 2016 for Ohio State.  The 6 ft, 182 pound runningback, commits to Ohio State on a day when many thought that he would.  He was on commitment watch, well basically since his recruitment started.  The Hubbard High School standout received an offer from Ohio State, visited multiple times, and the rest is history.  Hill is also the teammate of Ohio State target Larry Scott.  Imagine having a backfield with both of these stars?  It must make the coaches job easy.  Hill told me he knew where he was going after his last visit.


“I knew the last time I visited here, I was playing here.  I did not want to commit then because I did not want to commit in the excitement of the visit.  So I knew going to the visit today, I was going to walk out of there a Buckeye,” Hill said of the commitment.

Hill gives the Buckeyes a good start to the class as he is the 57th ranked player in the nation by the 247sports Composite.  He is one of, if not, the best players from the state of Ohio, regardless of class.  Hopefully he can bring his teammate along with him in LJ Scott.  He is going to try and talk to him about it and see how it goes, but told me, “I guess it can’t hurt hat I am going there now.”

Hill is a talented player and should be a highly rated recruit when it is all said and done.  This is a good get for Urban and Co. and it gets the ball rolling on what should be a top 5 class and if it rolls the right way, I think the 2016 class could be #1 in the nation.  It sure is off to a good start with George Hill.
