5-11, 175-pound Highland Springs (VA) star CB/WR Cris Hill made three unofficial visits recently, with these trips hopefully being a help in narrowing down his list of schools – he claims around 15 official scholarship offers at this point. Hill discussed his recent experiences as well as his future plans.

“I recently went to Virginia Tech, Tennessee and West Virginia,” Hill said. “I really enjoyed all my trips. I was really impressed with all of ‘em.”

Hill discussed what he liked about each experience.

Virginia Tech

“The last time I was there was for the summer camp my sophomore year,” Hill recalled. “I didn’t get to tour the campus and the facilities, so I was excited about doing that this time.

“I really enjoyed it. I liked it a lot. I liked the coaches a lot. I was really looking forward to getting to see all the facilities.”


“I really enjoyed it, too. I really liked the big stadium. I like how loyal the people are in Knoxville to the program. It’s like a family up there in Tennessee.”

West Virginia

“West Virginia was a little bit different. It’s not really a big town, but they live and breath West Virginia. I stopped by a Burger King on my way there and there were a whole bunch of West Virginia jerseys and everything.”

Hill was hoping to visit two more programs, but couldn’t fit them into his schedule.

“I was trying to get Michigan and Ohio State in, but I wasn’t able to so I’ll have to postpone those until during or after the season,” Hill said. “More than likely, I’ll probably have to make those official visits.”

Hill took an unofficial visit in June to the University of Virginia. Are the Cavs still in the running?

“I’m still considering them. They’re still in it,” Hill said of UVa. Asked what stood out about the experience, Hill recalled that “At UVa, they are focused on academics first. Some schools are mainly focused on football, but academics are so important at UVa.”

Once the versatile athlete visits Michigan and Ohio State, he believes he’ll be able to narrow his list.

“I’ll probably try and cut it down to about two or three,” Hill said. “Probably after I take the trips to Michigan and Ohio State I was going to narrow it down
