Hill is keenly aware of BYU's track record in granting scholarships to walkons. When coaches tell Hill that he could earn a scholarship after his first year, they have a lot of credibility to back it up.
"Coach Doman is someone I trust completely and I know that he'll work hard with me to get me to prove my worth as a scholarship player as long as I'm willing to work myself," he said. "BYU is a great system for me and like I said, I love the coaches there."
Following spring practices, Hill will leave for a mission. Before leaving coaches will have had two full practice sessions and a season to observe him and then determine if they'll give him a scholarship following his mission service.
"It's a great situation for me," he said. "To have the chance to prove yourself at a school like BYU is a great opportunity. If things don't work out, I hope to get offered by other programs, but I'm confident that things will work out for the best. I'm very excited to have this opportunity at BYU."
Hill was a consensus first-team all-state selection his senior year. TBS will followup with more of Hill's story following letter of intent day.
