Jersey Receiver Favors Two

Wide-receiver Greg Hill, from Long Branch, New Jersey, has 6 scholarship offers so far, although he has yet to receive an offer from either of his two favorites.

Name: Greg Hill
Position: WR
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 185 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.46 at Rutgers camp
School: Long Branch HS, Long Branch, NJ

Greg played wide-receiver and some cornerback for Long Branch last year.

"Last year, I had 27 catches for 658 yards and 8 touchdowns," Greg said.  "I returned 3 kicks for touchdowns.  I had a lot of touchdowns called back too."

He will play wide-receiver exclusively this season, the position for which he is being recruited by many college coaching staffs.

"The Rutgers coach told me I might be a defensive back, because he said I'm kind of tall, but the 40 schools that are looking at me are recruiting me to play receiver.

"Right now, I only have 6 offers: Rutgers, West Virginia, Acidia University (a school in Canada), Boston College, Ohio State and Temple.  I believe Virginia has but I'm not sure.

"I'm very interested in Virginia Tech, but I didn't get an offer from them yet.  They said that they  want to see me develop more my senior year.  They said I have all the size and stuff, but they haven't offered yet."

Greg has only visited a few schools so far.

"I went to Rutgers' football camp this summer.  I stayed up there for about 3 days.  I've seen West Virginia and I  was at the Penn State Nike Camp, but I didn't do anything because I had the flu."

Greg's top 3 schools in order of preference are Virginia Tech, Central Florida and Rutgers.

"My coach went to Ohio State.  He's always talking about them, so they're in my top 5.  I might take an official visit there.  I'm definitely going to visit Central Florida and Virginia Tech.

"I like Central Florida's offense and that they pass a lot.  They're recruiting me hard, but I didn't get an offer yet.

"Virginia Tech has Michael Vick's little brother coming in, they have Kevin Jones and they have an awesome defense.

"If I get an offer from Virginia Tech, I'm probably going to commit, either there or Central Florida."

Has he heard much from Penn State?

"They've been kind of quiet.  I get letters from them, but I haven't talked to them in a while."
