Scout four star running back Kylin Hill spent some time with the Mississippi State coaching staff this morning.

Mississippi State hosted some priority targets on unofficial visits over the course of the past 24 hours. One of the campus guests was local product Kylin Hill of nearby Columbus High School. Hill reports that the sit down with Coach Dan Mullen went exceptionally well.

Kylin Hill and his mother made the short drive over to Starkville from Columbus earlier today to learn more about the possibilities of a college football future in Maroon and White. A repeat visitor to campus, Hill did not require the standard guided tour.

"Well, the meeting went well," Hill shared. "As soon as we got there we headed straight to Coach (Dan) Mullen's office."

Hill and his mother are familiar with the facilities available to student athletes at Mississippi State, so this morning's conversation was much more than just a meet and greet situation. Hill reports that the Bulldogs did their best to sell themselves as a possible college home.

"(Coach Mullen) was basically saying everything," Hill explained. "All of the things that he told my mom, she loved."

The rising senior recently said that Mississippi State and Nebraska were his top two schools, but the later shared that other schools remain the mix for his signing day autograph. After this morning's get together, it appears that the Bulldogs have made a solid move with both Hill and his family.

"My mom told (Coach Mullen) that Mississippi State is #1 on her list," Hill said.

While the Bulldogs appear to have the inside track in Hill's recruitment, he has not completely closed the door on other programs. The four star ball carrier stopped short of making a decision this weekend,but reports that things are moving along when it comes to his decision making process.

"My mom is going to talk it over with my dad and we are going to proceed from there," Hill said.

Hill currently holds offers from Memphis, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, Oregon State, Tennessee, UAB among others. 

As a junior, Hill rushed for 1,750 yards and 18 touchdowns on 201 carries. As a pass catcher, the versatile standout reeled in 21 passes for 336 yards and three scores. Hill is considered one of the top college football prospects in his home state of Mississippi for the 2017 signing class.
