Hill Reflects on Strong U-M Camp

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech 2016 CB LaVert Hill talks Michigan camp performance and more.

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech's LaVert Hill had a pretty good June.

The newly named 2016 Scout 300 four-star cornerback has gone from a relatively unknown prospect to a top flight recruit -- and in the process has earned five offers.

Hill, who earned his first offer from Illinois on June 14, has since earned offers from North Carolina, N.C. State, Miami (Fla.) and Temple. He earned the majority of his offers during Cass Tech's southern camp trip to the majority of the schools mentioned.

Michigan was the first school Hill and his Cass teammates camped at in mid-June. While Hill didn't earn an offer at U-M's camp, he was in the middle of the action all day and made multiple plays on the ball in the one-on-ones. He was easily one of the top players in attendance.

"I feel like I did pretty good," Hill said. "There was some good competition. I think I got better at camp. I Just keep working and keep working hard."

Also during his camp visit he had a chance to talk with the U-M coaching staff about a possible future with the program.

"To just keep working and they really like me a lot," Hill said on message from the Wolverine coaching staff. "And then look forward to the offer in the future."

Hill's older brother, Delano Hill, is entering his sophomore season at Michigan. So Hill is very familiar with Michigan's program. Which would make a possible U-M offer that much sweeter.

"It would mean a lot," Hill said on a possible U-M offer. "Because my brother goes there. That would be a good thing. But I would still keep it open to more opportunities [with other schools]."

Hill says he plans on coming back to campus for some Michigan home games this year. He also noted he would like to check out more of the academia offered on campus.

Next up for Hill are visits to Tennessee and Ohio State in late July.
