It’s no secret the Wolverines coaching staff has made Detroit King standout Lavert Hill a priority in their 2016 class.
A four-star cornerback out of Detroit King, Hill was on U-M’s campus this weekend for an official visit, and took time to reflect on his visit with The Michigan Insider.
“It went pretty well,” Hill said of his official Michigan visit. “I got along with the coaches. It was me and my mom, she had a pretty good time too. It was a pretty good experience.”
During his visit, it also gave Hill personal time to connect with U-M secondary coaches Mike Zordich and Greg Jackson.
“I talked to Coach Zordich and Coach Jackson about playing their defense,” Hill said. “They just told me ‘Just come here and get ready to play if you want to come here.’ Told I was going to be pretty good if I come here and they would teach me lot of stuff that (helps me get) to the NFL.”
Hill’s brother, Delano Hill, currently is a junior safety for the Wolverines, gave his younger brother some positive feedback on Jackson as well.
“(Jackson is) the type of coach I can play for,” Hill said of Jackson. “My brother just said he helped him improve his game a lot. You can call him anytime you need something; he’s always there. So that’s pretty good.”
And right before Hill left campus, he had a moment with Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
“I talked to him before I left Michigan today,” Hill said of Harbaugh. “He just told me ‘they want me here bad. So if I wanted to come here, there would always be a spot for me.’ He just told me their defense is still going to be the same, hard pressing man, so that’s pretty good.”
When asked if he had a leader in the clubhouse for his commitment? Hill said: “I am not leaning no where, I’m just open to options, that’s it. I’m just taking a long time to think about it.”
Already with official visits to Tennessee and Michigan, Hill says will be visiting USC (Jan. 15), UCLA and Michigan State for his other official visits. He will not be enrolling early, and has no timetable for his commitment announcement.
