Hills Heads to Happy Valley

Central Catholic HS prospect Perry Hills is making the trip from Pittsburgh to Happy Valley for Friday's Elite 11 Quarterback Camp. Fight On State talked to Hills about what he is looking forward to, another sport he plays and his first offer.

Perry Hills, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound QB hopeful, is looking forward to his trip to Penn State on Friday -- especially the competition of the Elite 11 Camp.

"I am excited," Hills said. "I can't wait to see where I stand."

Hills is a top QB prospect, but also a highly touted wrestler. In fact, he has visited Penn State before – but only for wrestling tournaments.

"I took first in the WPIAL and fourth at states," Hills said of his wrestling. "And I'm ranked seventh in the nation in the 2012 class."

Even though Hills could be a big-time collegiate wrestling recruit, he has other plans for his college career.

"I want to play football in college," Hills said. "I got my first offer today."

Kent State pulled the trigger by offering Hills Wednesday. But the Pittsburgh native is gaining plenty of attention from schools like Penn State, Pitt, Michigan State, N.C. State, Eastern Michigan and Toledo.

Penn State is one of the schools at the top of his list – and a school that continues to intrigue him.

"I have received many invites to their camps and letters of interest from Penn State," Hills said. "But this weekend will be my first time visiting their football facilities."

A weekend, that for Hills, can't come soon enough.

"I'm excited to compete against top level quarterbacks to see how I measure up," Hills said. "And hopefully get my name out there."
