According to 247Sports, the offer had a huge impact on Hill’s family, and caused him to decommit from Virginia in early April:
This news came on the heels of landing an offer from Florida State. An offer that he said made his grandmother go “crazy.”
“Oh she went crazy,” Hill said of when he told his grandma the news. “She went absolutely crazy. She always talked about it when I was growing up that I was going to be there one day and now it’s just happening. When I got it I was ‘wow I’m living the dream.’”
Virginia was recruiting Hill as an H-back but he is an extremely versatile athlete. For Bulloch Academy Hill lines up at running back, receiver, and safety, for which one of his offers wanted him to play. He also plays basketball and participates in track and field. For FSU, Hill was primarily recruited by running backs coach David Johnson and OC Kenny Dillingham, so staying at tailback is likely the plan.
