"Coach (Harlon) Barnett stopped in my school about two weeks ago," Hilliard said. "I've been talking with him and he said he really likes me and would like for me to come up for camp. I'm going to visit there on Monday and they said they are going to offer me."
One thing not lost on Hilliard is the success the Spartans have enjoyed signing players from his hometown.
"I know they recruit a lot of Cincinnati guys," said Hilliard. "One of my teammates Trey Kilgore is going there and I've gotten to know Shane Jones of Moeller. So I know they like the players from here."
