"I chose Duke because they offered the best combination of football and academics. They were the highest rated education, and they have a program that will be really good once the young players get some experience and a little older."
Hill chose the Blue Devils over offers from Northwestern, Cincinatti, and East Carolina. He was also receiving interest from South Carolina and Virginia.
At 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds, Hill lines up as a defensive end for Orlando Boone High. However, in college he projects as an offensive lineman.
Attending the three day camp at Duke in mid-June, Hill measured out at 6'6 and 260 pounds. He put up 225 pounds on the bench 10 times, and had a vertical jump of 28.5. His shuttle run time of 4.9 seconds was among the best for offensive linemen.
