TALLAHASSEE – For Florida High’s Isiah Hill there were two big things on his senior season to do list prior to yesterday.
Now there is only one left.
The one that did come off the list was making the decision of where he wants to play college football at.
Hill, who announced to a packed crowed yesterday at the 4QuartersOnline Media Day, surrounded by his team mates, that he would be talking his talents down south to Florida International in Miami.
The reason for Hill choosing Florida International was simple: It felt like home for him.
“After going down south and speaking with the coaches, my recruiting coordinator and after talking to a lot of the players, it definitely felt like home. Facilities and everything were nice and all the coaches were nice. The area is nice, so everything just felt right,” Hill said.
Hill also had offers from Army, Appalachian State and Middle Tennessee State as well.
He said his head coach, Jarrod Hickman, has played a supporting role in his recruitment efforts.
“He has definitely given me lot of opportunity. Every coach that comes through, he always said my name, introduces me to them. He has played a great roll along with my parents. They also have helped out in the recruiting process,” Hill said.
Now Hill’s focus is solely on his senior season which will include a transition from free safety to quarterback to help the team fill in the roster where support is needed the most.
The Florida High team itself will be younger and Hill said that a lot of players are transitioning into new roles like he is and wants to be that leader can help them go as far as they can as the team has played in the state semifinals and regional finals over the last two seasons.
“i want to take my team as far as we’ll go. The opportunity is out there, we just got to get it,” Hill said.
All verbal commitments are non-binding until National Signing Day on February 3, 2016, when prospects can officially sign a National Letter of Intent.
