Brookwood athlete Matthew Hill is one of the most versatile prospects in the state of Georgia. The 6-foot-1 185-pound Hill played all over the field for his Brookwood team, making plays at receiver, running back, and even ran the ball out of the quarterback position at times. When he wasn’t making plays on offense, Hill proved to be a solid option at cornerback on the defensive side.
Hill has an impressive offer list so far, holding offers from Alabama, Florida, Ohio State, Michigan, Florida State, among others. Yesterday the talented athlete was offer by Mark Richt and the Miami Hurricanes. One school that hasn’t offered if Georgia, and that’s one he definitely wants.
I’ve visited Georgia three times.” Hill said. “The coaches there recruiting me are coach (Mel) Tucker and coach (James) Coley. I think they are recruiting me as a wide receiver but I talk to coach Tucker too so if they were to offer I think it just depends on where they need me the most really. The last time I spoke with them was during the Auburn game.”
Although he does not have an offer, he knows the program well. Hill knows a lot of programs well and has made sure to take his visits and see as many schools as possible. Hill has been over to Auburn three times, and has visited Clemson, Tennessee, and Florida State.”
“When I go on visits, I’m looking for a great environment.” Hill said. “I’m looking for a great place with a great coaching staff that shows they can be a father figure when your father is not around.”
Hill had a great showing last week at Rising Seniors, and proved why he is such a highly coveted prospect. He runs smooth routes; he has reliable hands, and has the ability to go grab the football over a defender. Hill is also a popular guy in the recruiting world, and is close with other recruits like Trey Dean, Robert Cooper, Justin Mascoll, and Jarren Williams.
Hill’s Brookwood teammate, Leonard Warner, is one of the top uncommitted prospects in Georgia at the moment. Like everyone else, the 2018 receiver is still unsure about when or where Warner will commit.
“I always bug on him (Warner) about when he’s going to commit.” Hill said laughing. “It seems like it’s taking forever. He always just says ‘soon’. He’s been saying ‘soon’ for a year and a half now so I like to mess with him and give him a hard time.”
Hill could see his recruitment go in the same direction, as he seems wide open in his recruitment. While most of the bigger programs have offered, there are a couple including Georgia and Clemson who have not. Hill seems like a young man who wants to continue taking visits, looking at schools, and make a decision down the road.
As a receiver, Hill caught 41 passes for 849 yards and 9 touchdowns. He also added 625 yards rushing and 8 touchdowns on the ground. As a defensive back, Hill recorded 24 tackles, broke up three passes, and forced one fumble. Hill is a four-star prospect and the second-ranked receiver in Georgia at this time for the 2018 class.
