Add another; Tide lands Alfy Hill

According to the Birmingham News, “Defensive lineman Alfy Hill, the No. 4 prospect on the Charlotte Observer’s list of the top 25 college football prospects in North Carolina, will announce this morning that he has committed to Alabama, according to his high school coach.”

Hill is rated a four-star recruit by Rivals, and a four-star prospect by Scout. Scout lists Hill with offers from schools like Alabama, North Carolina, Duke, East Carolina, Michigan, North Carolina State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. Rivals rates Hill’s speed “as good as it gets.”

ESPNU lists Hill as a part of the ESPNU 150 Watch List with a score of 82. ESPNU’s evaluation of Hill provides some good detail. According to the ESPNU scouts, “Hill is an interesting prospect because he is a big kid, who can move. He also presents some nice versatility. He will likely end up at defensive end with his size, but can be used as a linebacker or allowed to slide down inside and take reps as a defensive tackle. He looks all of what he is listed at on film and in a straight line he can motor. He has long strides and can cover some ground.” As always, there is much more analysis at ESPN’s website. Worth reading for recruiting fans.
