DETROIT – LaVert Hill made nice debut in his Detroit (Mich.) King uniform, snatching two interceptions in King’s 12-10 win over defending state champion Warren (Mich.) De La Salle.

King, who transferred from Detroit Cass Tech this off-season, justified his four-star rating in his King debut, and helped seal on the victory with his second interception late in the fourth quarter.

“It was a good interception,” Hill said. “I just made a play a play on the ball in a clutch time. And big players make big plays in big games. I just had to step it up and be a leader for my team.”

Currently, Hill is committed to Penn State. But that hasn’t stopped other schools from reaching out. In fact, he says Michigan, Arizona and Tennessee are all showing heated up interest as of late.

“Those schools are coming on strong,” he said. “I’m still committed to Penn State right now.”

Hill says his main recruiter from Michigan is coach Jim Harbaugh, who has caught the four-stars eye with his coaching experience.

“He’s a good coach,” Hill said of Harbaugh. “He coached at the next level. He knows what he’s talking about and what he is doing. I am just waiting to look at (Michigan’s) season.” What does he hope Harbaugh brings to Michigan? Said Hill: “Just win games.”

And Harbaugh’s message to Hill is clear, he is wanted in Ann Arbor.

‘They just told me they want me there,” Hill said of U-M. “Stuff like that. Its alright.”

Adding: “I eel like I can play anywhere. So it really don’t matter.”

As for upcoming visits, Hill says he will take his official to Penn State on Nov. 21, when they play Michigan.
