Standout Four-Star Enjoys Texas

Holton Hill is the No 15 ranked cornerback prospect in America. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound four-star standout made an unofficial visit to Texas and walked away more than impressed.

Holton Hill was not able to workout Friday night, but that did not takeaway from his overall experience. He was seen numerous times talking with head coach Charlie Strong. Hill made the trip up with athlete J.W. Ketchum and is glad he did.

"It was an amazing experience," Hill said. "I had a good time and it was amazing. I had a chance to get around and talk to the coaches, and I enjoyed myself."

Charlie Strong was evaluating as many recruits as possible but made more than a few special trips to spend quality time with the lockdown corner. It's that kind of one on one attention that caught Hills eye.

"That makes me feel good about myself and them as a whole," Hill said. "It makes me think they feel highly of me which is a good thing when I look into a school. Getting around the coaches, its always good to get around the coaches and hear what they have to say about you," Hill said. "There were so many wonderful things they had to say and they want me to be a Longhorn."

Coach Chris Vaughn could be his future position coach. Coach Vaughn is very energetic and passionate about coaching and the game of football.

"That's what I like to see," Hill said. "The coaches getting fired up because that's what I build off of, that intensity, and that's what I like to see, and I enjoyed it. It was amazing."

Where does Texas stand for the speedy cornerback?

"Honestly, I can tell you I am not sure, but I can tell you that Texas is in my top five," Hill said.

Hill talked about his game and what makes him a high-level recruit.

"Man on man, very physical, I like to stand in the receivers face the entire game." Hill said. "I am very explosive and I like to harass the receivers all night long."
