New Jersey QB talks visits

Just a couple of weeks ago everyone was talking about the last official visits that were being taken by the top uncommitted seniors.

Now that so much of the focus has shifted to the junior class, schools are trying their hardest to get those youngsters into town on unofficial visits for junior days or, after that, spring ball.

Audubon, New Jersey quarterback Brandon Hill has been invited to a lot of schools recently. While he probably won't be able to check all of them out in the near future he does plan on giving them all a close look.

"I already went to the Rutgers Junior Day. I'm probably going to go to a couple of their spring practices, too. I'm probably going to go to the Connecticut Junior Day coming up.

"I've been invited to some other schools but I'm not sure which trips I can make. Alabama has invited me and Boston College has invited me out there. NC State and Maryland invited me, too."

Considering Hill is from New Jersey, already holds a Rutgers offer and has spent some time around the Scarlet Knights' campus it should come as no surprise that the in-state school is in a good position with the 6-foot-5, 218-pound quarterback.

"I talk to their coaches," he said. "They came to my school probably three weeks ago. They still seem really interested.

"I don't know if I have a top five or anything. Rutgers is obviously one of the top schools. Until I get more offers I can't really say too much."

Who might those other offers come from?

"Maryland said they want me to throw for them. They said they really liked my highlight tape. Boston College said they'd like to see me throw for them, too. They just want to get a look at me in person."
