One Arkansas State commitment is excited about taking in his first Red Wolves Football game this upcoming weekend.

Missouri athlete Jonah Hill has led his Springfield Hillcrest High School team to an undefeated 5-0 record. Will take an unofficial visit to Arkansas State this Saturday.

Hill, who committed the Red Wolves in late summer to play H-Back (the hybrid tight end) in the Gus Malzahn offense, currently plays quarterback for his high school team.

Hill, a 6-foot-4, 235-pound athlete, has over 800 passing and over 400 yards in rushing.

Hill and his family had planned on making a trip to Jonesboro, Arkansas for the Memphis game, but had to cancel after suffering an injury the night before.

"We were coming to the Memphis game but I got injured in my game the night before and had to have stitches to my face. We are coming up this weekend, I can't wait to take in the game day atmosphere. I have been keeping up with the team, they are playing well, the Western Kentucky game should be a great one."

Hill is also excited about the play of his high school squad, especially after last weeks come from behind victory.

"It was our toughest opponent," Hill explained. "We were down 28-40 going into the fourth quarter, we ended up winning 42-40."

According to Hill, he isn't planning on graduating early and attending school at ASU in January.

"No right now I'm planning on finishing out my senior year," Hill said. "I plan on running track in the spring."

Two new schools have recently shown interest in the talented Missouri athlete.

"Oklahoma and Miami have shown interest," Hill said. "I have told a lot of coaches and my high school coaches that I'm very committed to Arkansas State. I made a great decision and wouldn't change anything about it. I'm very excited about being a Red Wolf."

Hill has kept up with ASU's new facility plans.

"Their new facility is going to be incredible," Hill said. "I love all the excitement surrounding the program, I want to be a part of it."
