Va. DE Enjoys UNC Visit

A few weeks after receiving an offer from the school, Trevon Hill made his first visit to North Carolina on Saturday for the Tar Heels' bout with East Carolina.

"I got to see overall how the campus is, how the fans are, and the atmosphere," the 2015 prospect said. "It was pretty good.

"I'm still open to all [schools]. [The visit] helped [UNC] a little bit, but then again I'm open to all right now."

Prior to kickoff, Hill, a 6-foot-3, 220-pounder from Virginia Beach (Va.) Salem, spent time with Randy Jordan, his primary recruiter.

"He was talking about how if I came to Carolina, they would put me at Bandit," Hill said. "Or I could put my hand in the ground. But I probably could play both."

Until last week, Hill has been Salem's starting defensive end the past two seasons. He was moved to a position similar to Bandit in preparation for last Friday's game against Virginia Beach (Va.) Cox.

"It was pretty fun," Hill said. "I could see myself playing it."

More importantly, the position move was beneficial for both Salem, which won 22-21 and remained undefeated, and Hill, who had his best game to date with three sacks and a dozen tackles. On the season, he has collected 37 tackles and six sacks. By comparison, he had 40 tackles and six sacks as a sophomore.

After meeting with Jordan, Hill headed to the sidelines of Kenan Stadium before taking his seat in the stands.

"The game was good," Hill said. "The atmosphere from the fans was crazy. With them losing and a lot of people walking out, the stadium was still packed. The fans are loyal. They have good fans. I could see myself going there."

Earlier in the month, Hill received a Twitter direct message from Jordan.

"He said ‘Call me. I have some big news for you,'" Hill said. "I kind of figured it was an offer. But when he told me, I was like, ‘This is real.' I was excited. My mom and dad were excited, too."

UNC is the fourth school to have offered Hill. He also holds offers from Duke, Old Dominion, and Virginia.

Besides UNC, Hill has visited Old Dominion and Virginia. His visit schedule includes Virginia Tech on Oct. 12 (vs. Pittsburgh), Ohio State on Oct. 26 (vs. Penn State), and Duke on Nov. 16 (vs. Miami).
