One of the top tailbacks in the 2017 class is Columbus (Ms.) playmaker Kylin Hill. The Scout 300 running back has picked up early offers from Memphis, Ole Miss and Mississippi State with several other schools showing interest.
A school that has yet to reach out to the rising four-star prospect is Michigan. Standing 5-foot-10, 200-pounds, Hill is eager to get in touch with the Wolverines.
“I have not heard from Michigan at the moment, but a recruiter for them did follow me on Twitter,” Hill told The Michigan Insider. “Oh yeah, I am interested in Michigan and I would love to take a visit. I love their style of play, the way their offense operates plus their stadium. I love a big crowd.”
Living in the south and certainly the middle of SEC country, Hill maintains a strong understanding of Michigan, eager to see what first year coach Jim Harbaugh has in store in Ann Arbor.
“It would mean a lot (if Michigan offered) because big time programs like that most likely only offer big time guys or the guys they really want to be apart of their team/program,” said Hill.
With the recruiting process in full swing for Hill, his summer has been filled with camps and campus visits with two more possibly to come with Mississippi State and Ole Miss.
Hill’s junior season is quickly approaching, his focus now shifting fully toward his team in hopes of bouncing back from a disappointing campaign as a sophomore.
“I’m excited,” said Hill. “The team is ready for this upcoming season and I’m seeing a lot of maturing was needed last season. That’s why we went 4-7, but this team is ready and a lot of people stepped up to take that leader role including me. This season I think we are going to make it into the playoffs. We are just going to see how that turns out."
“I am comfortable being a leader. It’s just like if we are doing drills and I slack and play around, some people might think if Kylin can slack and play around, so can I. It’s just the little things.”
