Hill: U-M Relationship is 'Developing'

Detroit (Mich.) King 2016 CB LaVert Hill, who is currently committed to Penn State, discusses his latest trip to Michigan and more.

DETROIT – Senior cornerback LaVert Hill is still committed to Penn State.

However, that didn’t stop the four-star Detroit (Mich.) King standout from participating in Michigan’s annual recruiting bonanza – Barbecue at the Big House – earlier this month.

In fact, Hill, who committed to PSU in January, took his mother along for the visit and hung out with the U-M coaching during the all day affair.

“It was very good visit,” Hill said. “My mom and I talked to Coach Harbaugh, Coach Durkin and Coach Zordich, it was a pretty good experience.”

Adding: “We have a pretty cool relationship.”

During his visit, Hill says Michigan made it clear that he will be a top priority in its 2015 class.

“They want me because they say I’m a playmaker and have good ball skills,” Hill said. “I have the technique already, so it will be easy to coach me.”

While his relationship with the Wolverines in the upswing, Hill still maintains he is still very much a Nittnay Lion.

“It’s been developing,” Hill said of his relationship with Michigan. “But like I’ve said, I’m still committed to Penn State.”

What’s next for Hill? Well, he says a visit to U-M might be in his future, but only to see his brother, Delano, suit up at safety this fall.

“It’s a possibility I might see my brother play this year,” Hill said on a potential game day visit to U-M. “Far as other than that, be a fan of my brother.”
