Home Away From Home

Bobby Hill had a breakout season for Colquitt County as he hauled in 80 passes for 1,123 yards and eight touchdowns. The 2012 All-State selection will be taking those talents to Ole Miss next fall.

"The trip went real good," Hill said. "I enjoyed myself in Oxford. Everyone was just so hospitable - the players and coaches. We're trying to get like a bond. This is a big recruiting class coming in. It is an up and coming team. They're about to get real good."

The upswing the Rebels had on the field and on the recruiting scene has caught his attention.

"It can open up doors for you. All of these big time prospects coming in. It just opens up doors for you when you turn it around like Ole Miss did this year. It gives you opportunities to be in the game with all of these great players they are in on."

The Georgia product has been to Ole Miss several times in the past. He was no stranger to the town of Oxford while on his official visit last weekend.

"This was my fourth trip to Ole Miss and every time I enjoyed myself. That was really a big part of me committing to Ole Miss."

What new did he learn about Rebels while on the trip?

"The fan base. The fan base is great. I love the fan case. Not only will they help you on the field but also outside of class and just in life. You have to look at where you are going for more than what they can do for you on the field."

What stood out the most during the visit?

"Being able to bond with the players, coaches, and the fans. I just like how they support you. It is not all about what they help you archive in college it is what they help you achieve after college. Like, if you graduate from Ole Miss they will help you get a job out of college."

Did the visit reaffirm that Ole Miss is the best college for the Colquitt County product.

"I have been to Ole Miss four times now and each time I came I felt at home. This is it for me. I am not even taking any visits outside of Ole Miss. I am trying to get over there this weekend again to go hang out with everybody."
