At 6'2", 315 pounds, Michael Hill is a big pickup for Ohio State in more than one way. Hailing from Pendleton High School in Pendleton, South Carolina, Hill is a top-notch defensive tackle ranked by 247 Sports as the 12th best DT in the class of 2013, and the 197th best player overall. Scout and Rivals both rank Hill as a 4-star prospect as well.
Hill's offer list included Alabama, Florida, LSU, Tennessee, FSU, Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina and Michigan. He is the kind of big, run-stopping tackle that Ohio State has had a difficult time attracting in recent years, and is yet another stud Urban Meyer and staff have brought in on the defensive line. As a junior he recorded 79 tackles and 8 sacks.
Welcome aboard Mr. Hill!
