5-11, 175-pound Highland Springs (VA) cornerback Cris Hill made what was his first official visit this weekend when he tripped to Virginia Tech. The Hokies staff had already impressed the talented athlete with an in-school visit earlier in the week. Did the official visit experience do the same?
“I really enjoyed myself,” Hill said of his official visit to Virginia Tech. “I was impressed with everything.”
Hill’s host was a familiar face in Victor “Macho” Harris, a sophomore cornerback who starred for Highland Springs as well.
