Junior safety Delano Hill (Detroit, MI/ Cass Tech) has picked up a considerable amount of interest from some Big Ten programs as well as Syracuse from the Big East. Hill holds three scholarship offers right now from Illinois, Iowa, and Syracuse. He plans on taking in a visit to Ann Arbor this weekend with a number of his Cass Tech teammates.
“I’m really excited to check out Michigan because I know a lot about their program and how good they are,” said Hill. “Michigan has really good tradition and the biggest thing is that they are a winning program, that is what’s most important because it’s why you play the game.”
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Hill has yet to hear much from the coaches at Michigan on the recruiting end. He hopes this will change after he visits.
“I have really high interest in Michigan,” said Hill. “I would like them to start recruiting me. If Michigan were to offer they would definitely be towards the top of my list."
Hill mentioned a few other programs that have been on his radar but have yet to offer.
"Wisconsin and Indiana have started to recruit me pretty hard, I am interested in those two schools as well," said Hill. "I think that they could be close to offering. I have been talking about unofficial visits with those schools later this spring or in the summer.”
Hill also has a visit set to Iowa on March 29th with Cass Tech defensive tackle and Wolverine target Kenton Gibbs.
“Iowa is a school I am interested in because they have showed me a lot of love, and they are also a good program,” said Hill. “I’m going to be looking for great academic support, the coach and player relationships, and a family type of atmosphere when I take my visits.”
Hill has taken one visit to Michigan State for their Junior Day February 25th. He plans on making a final decision before the start of his senior season.
The talented safety helped lead Cass Tech to a state championship this past season, recording 6 interceptions and earning All-City honors. Hill reports a 4.6 forty-yard dash time.
