LB Brandon Hill of Heathwood Hall already has five ACC offers in Clemson, Wake Forest, Duke, Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh. He can now add the SEC to his conference options after a recent offer from Georgia. And for good measure, he can consider the Ivy League as well thanks to an offer from Yale.
Hill has been making the rounds of late with stops at Clemson, Duke and Wake Forest for junior days. He plans to be at Florida State this weekend for a junior day. And he plans to visit Georgia and Yale next month.
The offer Hill has from Clemson is of the grayshirt variety at this point, but his conversations with the Tigers the past week give him hope that he will have the option of enrolling there in August, if that's what he decides to do.
"They said I had actually qualified for a full academic scholarship where everything would be paid for if I wanted to go there my first four months," Hill said. "So, I'' have all my stuff paid for. Maybe I'll have to pay for books or something. I can still attend practices and workouts with them. So, that was huge getting to hear that. And I can pick up the football scholarship that January (2017)."
Hill plans to come up with a favorites' list early next week. All of his other offers are for him going on scholarship with the 2016 class and that gives those schools something Clemson isn't offering right now.
"It's obviously something to consider," Hill said. "All the schools have their pros and cons. Right now they are kind of balancing out right now."
Hill said USC has been talking with his head coach and has told the coach an offer is close.
"That would be a good offer to have," said Hill who said he would definitely visit if he gets an offer.
