Lafayette (Williamsburg, VA) defensive end William Hill continues to hold two Division 1A scholarship offers, but that total could increase significantly by the end of the Evaluation Period. The 6-4, 255-pound junior recently sent out more of his 2007 season film and so far the response has been very good.

“I’ve gotten phone calls from Tennessee and Ohio State so far [in the Evaluation Period, which began last Wednesday],” said Hill, who has been officially offered by Maryland and UVa. “The Ohio State coach said he’d be here in May and they are interested. Basically, Tennessee is highly interested, too.”

Alabama, Illinois, Ohio State and Tennessee are among the out-of-state programs Hill sent his junior season film to recently. On Saturday, he dropped off film for the Virginia Tech coaches to evaluate.

“I finally got them my film,” said Hill, who was in Blacksburg for Tech’s Spring Game on Saturday. He was accompanied by his brother and sister. “I guess they want to evaluate that, so I should be getting an offer soon. I talked to Coach Cavanaugh, Coach Beamer, the defensive line coach and the offensive line coach. They seemed pretty excited about me. Coach Cav took me and Morgan Moses on a tour of the place.”

Saturday’s trip was Hill’s first experience in Blacksburg. He noted several highlights from the day.

“It seems that they have some really crazy fans that love Virginia Tech football,” Hill said. “I also like the weight room. And the players, I guess. At Virginia Tech, they have more laid back type of players. I talked to John Graves and a few other guys. They know they are in a great program, but they know they are fortunate to go there.”

Hill has been to the University of Virginia several times including last summer’s camp, the Georgia Tech game last fall and for a junior day last month. He is interested in both in-state schools, but he didn’t state a favorite.

“Right now, I still really don’t have any favorites,” Hill said. “I’m just open right now. I want to take some more visits, probably to [Virginia and Virginia Tech], as well as to out-of-state schools.”

This Saturday, Hill plans to visit the University of Maryland for its Spring Game. Next Friday, he will be in Chapel Hill, North Carolina,
