Four-star quarterback Kasim Hill spent his first three high school seasons at Gilman School in Maryland. For his senior year, however, he is transferring to St. John's College High School in Washington (D.C.), he told Scout on Wednesday. Interestingly, the head coach at St. John's is Joe Casamento, the former head coach at CBA. One of his assistants is former SYracuse running back Antwon Bailey.
"It was a family decision," Hill said.
There is less than 90 minutes and only about 45 miles between the two schools, so the move should not impact his recruitment. Hill agreed with that sentiment, saying he is still going through the same process.
That is true, and being in the same general area will not change which regional programs are coming after him. Hill is a four-star quarterback with a coveted skill set. Wherever he plays he will attract attention on the recruiting trail.
The first offer for Hill came before he even took a snap as a high school football player. It was from Syracuse during a summer camp prior to his freshman season. The new Orange staff have made it known the offer still stands and he is still a priority.
Hill is expected to visit Central New York on the 20th where he will have a chance to get to know the new staff on a more personal level. Hill says he remains very interested in Syracuse and Dino Babers' offense is attractive for a quarterback.
