Sleeper QB prospect enjoyed Louisville camp

Illinois QB A.J. Hill recently attended camp at the University of Louisville. He is hoping that his performance at that camp will help increase exposure to perspective schools. What does he have to say about Louisville and his camp experience?

Duquion (IL) QB A.J. Hill enjoyed his camp experience at the University of Louisville. He got to meet with the coaches and had good things to say about his time in Louisville.

"Louisville is a really nice school. I didn't get to make to the senior camp, so I came in for their quarterback – receiver camp. But I think that I played pretty good. I feel like I showed them I could play a little bit down there," said Hill. "I was in Coach Brohm's group and I really like Coach Brohm, he really knows what he is talking about. And as far as the school goes like everything it is really cool down there."

Hill made a visit to Northern Illinois the week before Louisville and after what he termed a "great showing" NIU offered a scholarship.

"Northern is my number one right now. I really like it there and I am really familiar with the coaching staff. I think I did really well at their camp," said Hill.

A.J. hopes that his performances in camp will increase interest from high majors as he said currently he has received the most interest from Eastern Illinois, Southern Illinois, Montana State, and Ball State.

In a school Hill is looking for a place to call home, a few other points of importance.

"The big thing is feeling comfortable with the coaching staff. I am looking for a place with good tradition, and I a school wants to redshirt me I don't have a problem with that," said Hill. "If I have a chance to play within a couple of years after that I would be happy. A town that I can feel comfortable in and a place where I can get a good education."

A.J. says that he is a cerebral player on the field and feels that is among the strongest parts of his game.

"My decision making is the strongest part of my game. I am pretty smart on the field, and when things break down I feel like I am strong enough to make a play with my legs. I also think I can control the game with my arm," said Hill.

Hill does say that he needs to brush up on a few things to help take his game to the next level.

"The thing I want to work on is my footwork. My coaches preach that all the time that even the great ones work on their footwork. I also want to work on my arm strength," said Hill.

A.J. says that he would like a quick resolution of his recruitment and he wants to be finished early.

"I would like to have my mind made up by the start of the season. That way I can concentrate on school and winning the state championship," said Hill.
