Hill Gets His Pitt Offer

Steelton, Pa., native Jordan Hill has maintained throughout the recruiting process that the Pitt Panthers are one of his favorite schools and today two members of the coaching staff stopped by his high school to hand-deliver a written offer to the defensive lineman. Hill currently has three clear favorites and talked about that with us on Wednesday night.

Steelton-Highspire High School defensive tackle Jordan Hill picked up his second written offer on Wednesday when the Pittsburgh coaching staff stopped by his school to hand it to his head coach. The 6-foot-3, 260-pound athlete has visited Pittsburgh plenty of times, but the next step in the process is taking mom along for the ride.

"Pittsburgh offered me today," Hill stated. "Coach (Brian) Angelichio and Coach (Greg) Gattuso came into the school and handed the offer to my head coach and said hello to me. I was really excited about it because Pittsburgh is definitely up there with my top schools."

"I'm going to be going for a visit to Pitt in two weeks with my mom and dad because my mom has never been there before," Hill explained. "I like that Pittsburgh has a lot of players from my area on the team because it really makes me feel more at home. They're also only three hours away which is a plus. (Head Coach) Dave Wannstedt is a really cool guy and always goes out of his way to shake my hand and say hello when I'm on campus."

At this point Hill says his top three are clearly Pittsburgh, Penn State and Rutgers. The Nittany Lions have yet to offer and while the Panthers are high on his list, Rutgers has made quite the impression with Hill as well.
