DB Jaydon Hill of Madison, AL was back at USC over the weekend for an unofficial visit and a camp session, his second visit in less than three months with the Gamecocks. Prior to the visit he had the Gamecocks and Tennessee 50-50 in his mind. That’s now changed following his stay in Columbia.
“South Carolina is definitely one of the higher choices, if not number one. Right now, it probably would be South Carolina as my number one,” Hill said. “They are kind of sliding up on top really.”
Hill said he’s pretty sure he’s going to visit Tennessee this weekend. The Vols will have to go a long way to top his experience at USC last weekend.
“I liked the visit as a whole. All the coaches showed a lot of love. That was a great visit. The whole weekend was nice,” Hill said. “It was just about what I expected. I was already thinking high about them going into it. They just met the expectations really.”
Hill participated in camp drills Saturday in front of Will Muschamp and Travaris Robinson. Afterwards, he got more encouraging words from the two of them.
“Muschamp told me he thought really high of me, and then T-Rob. Muschamp said I can play in the secondary and they really need me,” Hill said. “That was my first time actually being coached by a coach there, working out with them and seeing how he is and stuff like that. Coach T-Rob, that’s my guy. He’s real cool.”
Hill said the time with Muschamp and Robinson further increased the strength of the relationship he has built with the coaches and is a major reason he thinks highly of the program.
Hill said he will visit Florida next month and he also wants to visit Michigan and Texas A&M before a decision which has said likely will come in August.
