He visited another SEC program, but he’s still got the Gamecocks as his leader

Orlando cornerback Dominick Hill took his second official visit over the weekend to Missouri. His other official visit thus far was to USC. Hill came out of the USC visit favoring the Gamecocks, and that didn’t change despite the visit to the other Columbia, though he enjoyed his time out there.

“I just like the people,” Hill said. “I know somebody personally out there. He’s a player, so going out there and seeing him again, and being from the same area I’m from, an old friend of mine, it was nice. The coaches were good. Everything was good.”

USC head coach Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator/secondary coach Travaris Robinson have been in Hill’s ear for months pushing the Gamecocks’ need for a quality corner, and they have not let up. Hill said he hears from one or the other almost every day.

“Our relationship is genuine, me with South Carolina and Muschamp,” Hill said. “They are still a little bit in the lead. I haven’t visited anywhere else besides South Carolina and Missouri, but they are still on top.”

Hill is not taking a visit this coming weekend so any other visits will have to wait until the dead period ends in July. He said Nebraska and Oklahoma have been in touch and those are possible visits. And Ole Miss remains on his list as well.

Hill has set August 1 for a announcement and he said he’s trying to stick to that date, though it’s not locked in stone.
