Hill To Visit Top Schools, Talks U-M

Detroit (Mich.) King four-star 2016 CB LaVert Hill talks schools of interest, including Michigan and more.

SAGINAW, Mich. – Four-star 2016 cornerback LaVert Hill has the rare circumstance of transferring to his biggest high school rival before his senior year. And while it’s rare -- it’s very much true -- even if it is a little odd.

Hill, who is now enrolled at Detroit (Mich.) King, transferred from Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech this past semester after he help lead Cass to its second straight Detroit Public School League title. Of course, both of those championship wins came against his new school – King.

“It was pretty hard at first,” Hill said of transfer. “But I have got used to it now. The environment is really different. It’s cool for me right now.”

But not everyone has been happy with his transition, he says.

“Some people have been hatin’ on me because of that,” Hill said. “But overall it’s alright.”

Despite the transfer, schools are still very much interested in Hill’s talent at the next level.

“It hasn’t changed nothing,” Hill said of schools interest in him. “They just asked me, ‘How did that go? Or are you cool with it?’ I told them, ‘Yeah, I’m cool with it.’ Really, the most interest is Ohio State, Miami (Fla.) or Tennessee and Penn State.”

Currently, Hill is ranked the No. 153 overall player in the Scout 300 and No. 16 cornerback in the country.

Hill says he plans on attending Ohio State’s junior day on Jan. 25. He also says he planning on attending Tennessee with his teammate Donnie Corley sometime during February. He noted PSU should earn a visit soon, as well.

Hill’s brother, Delano, is heading into his junior season at Michigan. Hill also holds an offer from the Wolverines, and says he has been in contact with assistant coach Chris Singletary. And while he hasn’t heard directly from coach Jim Harbaugh, Hills says the hire of the new U-M headman has sparked his interest with the Maize & Blue again.

“It’s pretty good, I have more interest in Michigan now that he’s the coach” Hill said. “But I haven’t talked to him about it.”

While no date has been set, Hill says he would like to visit U-M soon and meet Harbaugh himself.

“I want to see how he is going to go forward with the program,” Hill said.

As far as a decision timetable, Hill says he has a date set in his mind.

“I would like to make my decision in the summertime going into my first game,” Hill said.
