Recruiting: Profile 2003 - Tony Hills (TE)

<b>Tony Hills</B> is a four star tight end from the state of Texas. Right now, he lists four schools as his favorites.

Tony Hills is one of the nation's finest tight end prospects. The rising senior from Houston (Texas) Elsik High School had a stellar Nike Camp at Texas A&M and his stock soared since. 

"I am the type of player that always has a good attitude, leadership skills and I work hard all the time," said Hills. "I block like a tackle and I have good hands. Plus, I am tough to bring down in the open field." 

Playing in an option offense, Hills doesn't get to catch many passes. Last season, he caught 13 balls for 227 yards and scored one touchdown. This season, they plan on using their tight end star more often in the offense. 

According to Hills, he claims scholarship offers from Colorado, LSU, TExas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Ohio State, Arizoan, Arizona State, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Florida, FSU and Notre Dame

"Right now, my four favorite schools are Miami, Colorado, Texas and LSU. I want to go to a school that uses the tight end and I would like to play early. 

"I like the tradition of Texas, LSU is up and coming, and the 'Canes are National Champs. Growing up, Colorado was a team that I always loved for some reason." 

Hills father, Michael Hills, played wide receiver at Arizona State. Hills will try and take unofficial visits to Texas, LSU and Colorado this summer.
