First offer in for Hill

First offer in for Hill

2014 Oakboro (N.C.) defensive end B.J. Hill picked up his first scholarship offer last weekend.

A few days ago B.J. Hill received his first scholarship offer from East Carolina.

"I talked with their coaches about two weeks ago," said Hill. "Then I went to their junior day last weekend and Coach (Brandon) Jones, my recruiting coach, offered me."

Hill enjoyed his time in Greenville.

"I liked it, it was nice up there," he said. "It was my first junior day, so it was a good experience. I liked how we got to split up into groups and talk with our position coach. They are recruiting me to play inside linebacker."

Two other schools have also gotten his attention.

"I've also been talking to UNC and N.C. State a lot," he said. "I'm going to junior days at both schools later this month. I really like both schools a lot. Each one has really impressed me. I think they both could offer if I do well at their camps this summer."

The Wolfpack and the Tar Heels are both recruiting Hill to play defensive end.

Several other schools are recruiting the 6-foot-4, 245-pound Hill.

"I've also been getting mail from Duke, Virginia, Virginia Tech, LSU – just a lot from a lot of different schools," he said.

The West Stanly product said the most important factor in his decision will be education. Hill wants to major in criminal justice.

Hill was injured in the first game of the season, but fully recovered and returned to play in the final three. Although he played in only three full games, Hill still finished with close to 200 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Defensively, he had 21 tackles.
