Hometown: Chelsea (Mich.)
High School: Chelsea High School
HT: 5-8 WT: 193
Position: Running Back
Experience: Two-time letter winner
2012 Season: Solid contributor on special teams and ranked second on the team in all-purpose yards with 789 (only 48 rushing).
Strengths: Solid player on special teams who has the tools to give the Spartans a change of pace out of the backfield as he can stretch the field with his ability to run and catch the ball out of the backfield.
Weaknesses: Lacks the size to be an every down back in the Spartans offense but could see his number called more often in 2013.
Overall: Hill should see his carries increase this fall with the Spartans looking for help at the running back position. Should remain a solid contributor on special teams, but we don't feel he's the answer the Spartans need for a success run at running back. Nevertheless, Hill has some skills that will allow the Spartans to use his abilities in a positive manor and he could play a key role in some games.
