Oakboro (NC) West Stanly standout B.J. Hill already has an impressive 6-4, 260-pound build and he has increased his strength over the last year. He could be ready to make an early impact in Raleigh.
That's at least what the coaching staff has to be hoping.
They have let it be known that they want Hill to be in the 270 pound
range when he gets to campus, that way they can plug him into a
weight program and continue to build him up from a good starting
"I'll probably play defensive tackle," he said.
He learned a bit more about that over the weekend on his official
Hill arrived at NC State on Friday and had some time to interact
with several other players already committed to the Pack. On
Saturday, the official visit began in earnest.
"We ate breakfast with the coaches and everything and went to the
basketball game for a little bit. Then back to the football stadium
to take some pictures. We had a great time that night and then the
next morning we ate breakfast and chilled with the coaches.
"We talked a little bit about football but they're really excited to
get the Pack 14 commits in to the program and ready to play."
"I talked to all of the coaches probably about the same but Coach
Nielsen is my defensive line coach and I talked to him and Coach
Doeren a lot too. All of them were great."
Hill said he connected very well with both the coaches and several
current members of the Wolfpack and it didn't take long to figure
out that he was on the same page as the rest of the players already
"We all love football. I love football and they love football so we
got along pretty good. I can't wait to get up there."
Hill said West Stanly's season this year was better than last year's
campaign but it didn't show in their record. Hill spent the majority
of his senior year playing defensive end and running back when the
offense took the field.
