Sam Pittman’s collection of large adult sons got just a little larger this evening with the pledge of Houston County guard Trey Hill. Hill, a consensus four star recruit, chose the Red and Black over offers from the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, and Clemson.
The 6’4, 345 pound standout is rated the #2 offensive guard in the nation by 247Sports, and the #6 player in the Peach State. Calling Hill "massive" is like calling Stone Mountain "a rock." He has a thick lower body and impressive leg strength. He’ll have to be on guard to maintain his weight, but Hill has all the tools to be a fixture up front for the ‘Dawgs.
The road grader played tackle in high school, protecting Jake Fromm’s blind side as a sophomore and junior. However he appears tailormade to play guard in Athens, where he’ll join an already deep and talented competition for playing time.
Next week the ‘Dawgs should find out if they’ll be receiving a commitment from the nation’s #1 guard, Pace Academy standout Jamaree Salyer, who happened to have a couple of visitors tonight.
They’ll also find out if five star offensive tackle Cade Mays is going to choose UGA or one of his other suitors: Clemson, Ohio State, or Tennessee.
