Holton Hill Preview

One of the top ranked cornerbacks in America checks in from Houston (TX) Lamar. The four-star standout is the No 9 ranked player at his position respectively.

Cornerback Holton Hill is a long and rangy player at 6-foot-2, 180-pounds. He holds offers from some of the top programs in America including Alabama, Baylor, Florida State, LSU and Texas to name a few.

Scout.com Take:

Much like teammate and top 2014 recruit John Bonney, Hill is a versatile defensive back, who could end up playing safety or corner on the next level. He has terrific size and a frame that looks like he will be much bigger by the time he leaves high school. He is not afraid to come up and lay the wood and flies to the football making sound tackles and making his presence known. Will get better and better with more experience.

Hill has great anticipation, closing speed and a much better tackler than people give him credit. He will continue to get quicker, stronger and faster one he reaches the collegiate level. He is a player that not many speak about, but could be one of the players in the Texas class with the most upside down the road.

Holton Hill should be making his official visit to Texas the weekend of January 17th. Heading into his official visit I believe Texas is the team to beat.
