Default 2016 - Collin Hill

http://preps.goupstate.com/news/arti...enty-to-prove/

"Collin Hill hasnít thrown a game-winning touchdown pass.

In fact, the Dorman rising junior quarterback has yet to make a varsity start.

That hasnít had much of an effect on college coaches, though.

Hillís 6-foot-5, 210-pound frame, coupled with his strong showing during the summer, has several Division I schools more than interested. Heís already set up to visit camps at South Carolina, Georgia and Stanford. He said the attention has been nice, but thereís plenty to prove before getting excited."



This guy was in my youth group in Spartanburg. Comes from a great family, is as solid a person as you could hope for and has NFL type potential. He is a bit of a late bloomer. He wasn't 6'5" in 9th grade. I was in his ear about the Gamecocks when he was in 7th grade. Hopefully he listened.

Oh, and his family are big Michigan fans. Hopefully they don't offer. They've had their fair share of pro size/arm strength quarterbacks.

I appreciate your posts....but I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion that he has NFL type potential if he hasn't started a high school game yet.

When I say potential I mean he has the size and the arm strength. Of course lots of other intangibles play into being a great quarterback, but most guys have to have the size and the arm at least (there are some exceptions). In terms of attitude I assure you his is as good as it gets. We will see how he does this year.

Dorman are off to an undefeated start and they defeated the states #1 team tonight, Dutch Fork. Apparently we are now taking a look at Collin's teammate, Stanford commit J.J. Arcega-Whiteside.

Hill looked pretty good last night. Especially on the long passes he had some great touch, to all the Wrs not just Arcega Whiteside. Hill stands tall in the pocket and isn't easily rattled. He took some big hits last night and stood in there without fear. JJ is awesome and I wish we would have recruited him harder early on. Don't see him switching from Stanford. The kid is gifted and even threw a Td. Davis jr nor any of the DF dbs had anything for him all night.

We better get busy with these two. The Quarterback can flat out throw the ball, long and short. He started on one of the best high school basketball teams in the state last year as a sophomore. I have seen him play twice including last night. He is D-1 no doubt.

The one we really have drug our feet on is Arcega-Whiteside. Wow what a great possession receiver. He is tall, long arms, big hands, jumps high (started on the varsity basketball team since he was a Freshman), and he has very good break-away speed. Very Athletic - he threw a touchdown pass last night on an end sweep. I don't understand why we have not been on him earlier and harder. One of the better high school receivers I have seen in the past 20 years. I think if we put a press on him, we have a chance. His mother (who played professional basketball overseas) is the girls basketball coach at Dorman - California is a long way from SC.

Agreed. I think both instate schools missed on Arcega Whiteside. He's gotten better each year and in all three games this season has shown that he's head and shoulders above high school talent. Hope we can turn him but that's a tall task this late and with his commitment to Stanford. Hell, even the pa guy keeps mentioning Stanford. He can take over a game and like I figured, he'd draw more attention this year with a pure passer at QB. It's a shame Dorman didn't play Hill last year, if so, JJ would have tons more offers. Was common knowledge that the best QB in district 6 played Thursdays last year. Hill can improve but I agree he's already got the look and throws of a major college QB. Think UGA has shown early interest in him.

That's you, but I would give my left arm to play QB for Steve Spurrier and my school. I was just never athletically gifted enough to try. (ok maybe left pinky, arm is a bit much.)

Per the link he didn't get his invite to the ECU game until the Wednesday after the game.

If we have legitimate interest in the guy that's unacceptable, someone dropped the ball bigtime. There are a lot of programs that go above and beyond the call of duty recruiting players, it makes us look lazy not getting him his invite in time...and it's definitely something that will be used against us.

Wonder if we invited him for the UGA game?

I don't know if we are gonna go after this kid strong, but I really don't like how our coaches have been handling in-state recruits recently. We have all but kissed away our ability to lock down the state.
