West Brunswick (Shallotte, N.C.) defensive end Alfy Hill has become one of the most highly recruited rising senior prospects in the Tar Heel state. The 6-4, 245-pound prospect now boasts somewhere between 25 and 30 Division 1A scholarship offers, with the most recent offer coming from the University of Michigan. Virginia Tech offered Hill back in March and no doubt hopes to get him on campus at some point.

That point could be soon.

“I think I’m going to go to one of the camps [at Virginia Tech],” Hill said. “I think it is in June sometime.”

Hill spoke highly of Virginia Tech back in March, when he first interviewed with TSL. He continues to be interested in Tech, but the visit certainly will be important.

“The Virginia Tech coach is cool,” Hill said. “I talk to the defensive line coach. I just want to go and see what is up there.”

Hill has taken unofficial visits to Duke, East Carolina, North Carolina and N.C. State. Does the fact that these schools are in-state give any of them an edge in this race?

“Not really, but my family is Carolina fans,” said Hill, who claims no favorites right now.

As a junior last season, Hill racked up 102 tackles including 12 sacks. He blocked four punts and one field goal as well, returning the field goal block 86 yards for a touchdown. A terrific athlete for his size, Hill also plays varsity basketball and runs the 100-meter and 200-meter events in track.

The recruiting process has kicked into high gear this spring, with Hill going from about 12 offers in March to close to 30 in May. He doesn’t mind the attention, but he is looking to make a college decision before the start of his senior season.

“It doesn’t matter how busy it has been, but I want to make a decision,” Hill said. “I’ll probably do it during the summer sometime.”
