"I grew up admiring Charlie Ward and admiring FSU's program," said Hill, who is yes-sir, no-sir polite.
"I enjoyed the camp. There was a lot of talent and it was fun being part of it and meeting new people."
Hill, a 6-foot-3, 220-pounder, threw for more than 1,627 yards and 21 touchdowns with just three interceptions last year at Jefferson County in Monticello, Fla., a 45-minute drive from the FSU campus. In addition to his passing prowess, Hill also ran for 596 yards and 12 touchdowns.
While Hill wants the opportunity to compete at quarterback in college, he said he wouldn't mind switching positions because of his athletic ability.
"At quarterback, you are probably going to sit at least two years (redshirt and learning the system)," Hill said.
"So, it really wouldn't matter. I just want to play."
Hill, who said he's fully qualified, lists FSU among his six favorites though he admitted he grew up a "fan of the Florida Gators." That group also includes Miami, LSU, Georgia, Michigan, and Maryland. Hill said he would like to take his five recruiting visits before making a decision.
At the moment, he's conditioning and lifting in preparation for Jefferson County's upcoming season under first-year coach Jeff Schaum, a former graduate assistant coach at FSU.
Schaum worked under defensive coach Wally Burnham, who has been at South Florida for a number of years.
