Hill up to 15 offers

Nebraska dipped into Houston last year and got defensive back Josh Kalu. The Huskers are back looking at cornerback Holton Hill from Houston (Texas) Lamar. Could Nebraska get a visit?

The spring is here and a lot of players are active with track like Holton Hill. Hill, a 6-foot-2 and 175-pound cornerback, from Houston (Texas) Lamar, just started track season and will be running a variety of events.

"We have started track," Hill said. "I will run the open 100m, 4x100m, 110m hurdles, 200m and sometimes I am also doing the 4x200m relay. I don't know what my best 100m time is."

Hill have never had the attitude that he's at his best. In fact, he says that he knows something can always be better and he's been working hard for his senior year.

"You can always get better no matter how well you play. I have been working on getting stronger, loosening up my hips and really just getting into shape."

Hill has good size and he puts it to use. As a cornerback he says that he's tough on the line for opposing wide receivers to get into their routes.

"I am very physical as a cornerback off of the line. You can put me on an island and I can just take a man and lock it down. I can also play zone as much as I can man to man."

The number of offers for Hill continues to increase week by week. He says that there are a number of schools that he would like to visit, but there are no specific plans yet.

"I have 15 offers right now," Hill said. "I am going to take some trips, but I am not sure where to. I'd like to see Texas, Texas A&M, Auburn, Alabama, Florida State, Nebraska, LSU and some others."

When Hill makes his visit he says that he's definitely looking to feel at home. He also wants to make sure that he will get his education and he's looking for a school that can help him get to the NFL as well.

"I am looking for an overall fit. I want the environment where I feel like I am at home. I want to be sure that where I go that I am getting my degree too. I also want to find a school that helps me get to the NFL."

The Huskers only recently offered Hill, but he's interested. He knows about Stanley Jean-Baptiste and that he projects to be a high draft pick in the NFL. He sees the body similarities as well.

"I am definitely interested in Nebraska. I recently talked to one of their coaches. They like physical cornerbacks. That would probably be a school that I would take an official visit to."
