RB Hill hoping for more offers

Despite his already lengthy offer list Alliance (Ohio) Marlington running back Alden Hill isn't satisfied.

While Hill has a high interest level in several of the schools that have offered him he's also very much interested in a few schools that haven't.

That helps to explain his busy schedule over the next month or so.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound prospect has been rumored to be thought of as a linebacker by some schools, while others are recruiting him as a running back. Hill has said he definitely prefers offense in college so he'll be working out for several schools at the position this summer.

Specifically, Hill will be camping at Indiana this Saturday and Illinois on Sunday.

After this weekend he will camp at Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Tennessee and Wisconsin. Those five schools haven't offered yet. This summer he will also visit Vanderbilt, BC and UConn, three schools that have offered.

"Wisconsin said they want to offer and if they do it will be coming up shortly," Hill explained. "They're waiting to see if one of their running backs is staying or going to prepare to leave. If he does they'll have an opening and would offer me as a running back, probably. They're just telling me to be patient.

"Others are telling me they love me for my size and personality. They've said they would take me as a linebacker anytime but they just go really slow with recruiting. Coach Narduzzi from Michigan State said I have the potential to play running back, they just want me to camp and evaluate me. He said if I move as well as I do on film then I should get the offer."

Hill plans on visiting all of those schools and narrowing his list to two or three schools. After that he will make his decision.
