Atlanta (Ga.) Maynard H. Jackson outside linebacker Jimmy Hill is eager to prove himself over the summer and throughout his senior football season.

As a junior, the 5-foot-11, 210-pounder didn't get the opportunity he had hoped for in regard to playing time, but Hill feels that when he was on the field, he displayed a playmaking ability.

"I think my biggest strength as a linebacker is making big tackles," he said.

Hill, who also plays kick return, has been hearing from a few college program, and is now waiting for the chance to send over more film.

"The coaches that I have heard from are all saying the same thing to me; they just want SAT scores and film," he said.

Hill does, however, have a few programs in mind from which he's hoping to hear more.

"I'm looking at Florida Atlantic, Ole Miss, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, and Kentucky Christian," said Hill.

He also has an idea of what he plans to study in college.

"I want to major in mechanical engineering, so I'm looking at schools that offer both that and also game and web design," he said.

The linebacker has been busy working out since January, lifting weights with his teammates for the upcoming season, in addition to also preparing for both the ACT and SAT.

"I'm going to take both of those tests and I'm going to try and go to a few camps this summer, too. If not, I'm definitely going to take some visits to Georgia State and Georgia Southern," said Hill.
