Clemson ‘in a good spot’ for one of nation’s top guards

Warner Robins (Ga.) Houston County four-star Trey Hill, one of the nation’s top offensive guards, isn’t in any rush to make a college decision.

He’s taking things slowly with his recruiting process and plans to take all of his official visits during his senior season before committing sometime after the trips. He wants to see more schools before he starts narrowing down his list of more than two dozen offers.

Clemson is one of the schools that continues to make a push for Hill.

“Coach (Robbie) Caldwell is recruiting me hard,” Hill told The Clemson Insider recently, “every day talking to me.”

What is Caldwell’s message to Hill?

“Just about being an explosive guard,” Hill said. “Somebody who can go on the field when they need to and just play for Clemson.”

Hill (6-4, 330) most recently visited Florida State in late February. He attended Clemson’s junior day in January and wants to get back on campus at some point.

In-state Georgia is recruiting him as hard as anyone and considered by many the program to beat, though Hill keeps his recruitment quiet and hasn’t publicly named his top schools.

“They’ve got a building program, and I guess I’m a good fit there,” Hill said of Georgia. “I’m a good fit at most other schools, but just a good fit.”

Auburn, Clemson, Florida and Florida State are some of the others heavily involved with Hill.

As for Clemson, it is “in a good spot” right now.

“They’re in a good spot with me,” Hill said. “I don’t have any top schools at the moment right now, but they’re high.”

Hill is ranked as a top-100 prospect in the 2018 class by all of the major recruiting services and ranked as the nation’s No. 2 offensive guard by Rivals, Scout and 247Sports.
