Hill Attends Junior Day

Late last week, North Carolina's coaching staff reached out for the first time to Alfy Hill. A staff member contacted his head coach, Jimmy Fletcher, and invited Hill to this past Saturday's Junior Day.

Hill, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound defensive end from Shallotte (N.C.) West Brunswick, accepted the invitation and he and Fletcher attended the junior day.

"It went well," Hill said. "I like all the facilities and stuff like that. I liked the coaches, too."

During his stay, Hill played video games with fellow recruits, went to meetings, and toured the football facilities.

"[The facilities] were nice," Hill said. "It was equipped with everything that needed to be in the facilities. It was neat and in-order, and everything was beautiful."

Being a big college basketball fan, Hill especially appreciated being able to attend the UNC-Georgia Tech basketball game.

"[The Smith Center] is huge – I haven't ever been in something that big," Hill said. "With all the people in there overall, that had a big impact on me."

Hill spent a great deal of time with Sam Pittman, his area recruiter. Additionally, he met one-on-one with John Blake, UNC's defensive line coach.

"He talked about how I can come to school and graduate," Hill said. "He talked to me about how he got guys into the NFL and if I come play with him, he could put me there, too."

Still in the evaluation stages, UNC hasn't decided whether to offer Hill a scholarship.

"They said they're going to look at my film and then let me know what's up," Hill said.

A week ago, Hill received his first scholarship offer when NC State offered during its Junior Day. A couple of other schools appear on the verge of extending offers of their own.

"I think Purdue is going to offer me sometime this week and Virginia Tech is supposed to let me know by [Monday]," Hill said.

In addition to UNC and NC State, Hill has attended Duke's Junior Day. He is looking to make spring unofficial visits to East Carolina and Wake Forest.

Hill says he still doesn't have a leader, but is looking hard at the in-state schools.

Hill plans to return to UNC this summer for a camp. He said he's also looking to camp at Duke and NC State.
