Talented Two-Sport Star Talks Tigers

Talented two-way 2015 performer K.J. Hill talks about his Auburn camp experience, his recruiting, and more.

North Little Rock, Ark.--One of the top wide receivers in Arkansas for the 2015 class as well as a standout on the basketball court, 6-0, 180 K.J. Hill is an explosive playmaker coming off a monster sophomore season.

Earning Co-Sophomore of the Year honors in Arkansas along with quarterback Ty Storey, Hill caught 48 passes for 845 yards and eight touchdowns last season and added 27 carries for 233 yards on the ground.

If that wasn't enough he tore it up on the hardwood as well, averaging 20 points, six rebounds and five assists.

Already hearing from football and basketball programs alike, Hill took a trip to Auburn last weekend to take part in a one-day football camp on the Plains. Working with Auburn WR Coach Dameyune Craig as one of over 600 players in attendance, Hill said he enjoyed everything about his first look at the Tigers.

"I loved it," Hill said. "It was my first time being there. The coaches treated me good and I had a lot of fun competing.

"I just like how they come out and are fired up," he added. "I'm a high intensity player and they seem really intense to me and ready to go. I also like the facilities and just everything."

Already hearing from Arkansas, Auburn, Ole Miss, Duke, Arizona, Oklahoma State and several other schools with a few looking at him for both sports, Hill said he's still waiting on his first offer to come through. As for early favorites he said that's all about returning the love he's been getting.

"I like all the schools that are showing me love right now," Hill said. "I'm just falling in love with the coaches and seeing which schools really want me."

Hill made the visit along with teammate and cornerback prospect Kavin Alexander. It was Alexander's second trip to Auburn this year.
