The 6-foot-2, 248-pound linebacker played as a true freshman for the Fighting Irish tallying 10 total tackles and two sacks, but decided that it was not the place for him. Although, Hill is running out of time as he plans to be enrolled by the time the fall semester starts.
Hill has set up a visit with Texas Tech for Monday. He added the Red Raiders are really the only school in the mix for him right now.
“I feel like I would be comfortable there. I know a lot of people there,” Hill said.
Hill is familiar with Texas Tech running back Justin Stockton a Cibolo Steele graduate who he played against in high school. The two have a “pretty close” relationship and Stockton has always talked Tech with Hill, even after they offered him in high school.
He has also been in touch with the whole coaching staff but mostly with coach Mike Jinks, the former head coach at Cibolo Steele.
"They just really have a plan for me. They told me that ‘we have your back and that you’re safe here and that you’ll really like it here,” Hill said.After speaking with defensive coordinator David Gibbs, Hill said the plan is to bring him in as a rush defensive end. That is the position he had experience with at Notre Dame, who he says runs a similar scheme.
“I could see myself playing in that scheme. Since it’s similar to the one we had at Notre Dame. I could definitely see myself playing in that role he wants me to play,” Hill said.
This is the only visit Hill has set up, and he said that it is possible he might go ahead and sign with Texas Tech depending on how the visit goes.
Hill will have three seasons of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2015 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.
