UNC Offers Hill

Alfy Hill continues to collect scholarship offers on a regularly basis. North Carolina is the latest school to offer the 6-foot-4, 245-pound defensive end from Shallotte (N.C.) West Brunswick.

"It's exciting, because as I was growing up most of my family were Carolina fans," Hill said. "To get that offer, it made all my family very happy."

After his coach began sending out his film roughly a month ago, Hill has gone from an unknown to holding a dozen offers.

"I'm kind of psyched right now," Hill said. "I didn't think that all this would happen in this short time period… I hope they keep coming and coming."

Alabama, Duke, Iowa State, Kentucky, LSU, New Mexico, NC State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia have all offered Hill.

Sam Pittman, UNC's area recruiter, asked West Brunswick head football coach Jimmy Fletcher on Thursday to have Hill contact him. When Hill returned his call, Pittman told him that the offer was in the mail.

"He was telling me that they liked my film and that I was a great player and hopefully I'll come up there and play for them," Hill said.

Hill, who attended UNC's Junior Day, will return to UNC on April 4 for a non-recruiting event. While in Chapel Hill, he plans to see the coaching staff.

In addition to UNC, Hill has attended junior days at Duke and NC State.

Hill says he doesn't favor any schools. However, he plans to narrow his list of schools to five by the end of the summer.

Before making a verbal commitment, Hill figures to take all five of his official visits.

Originally, Hill was looking to stay in-state, but he is now toying with the idea of seriously considering out-of-state schools.

"My mind was set on in state [schools], but I could end up going out of state," Hill said. "But I'll have to talk to my family about that."
