Nation’s No. 2 guard says Clemson is ‘selling itself’

Clemson has made Trey Hill one of its top targets on the offensive line in the 2018 class and in the process become a legitimate contender for the four-star guard from Warner Robins (Ga.) Houston County.

Hill spoke with TCI recently about Clemson, his interest in the program and more.

“I like Clemson,” he said. “They’re energetic. Their facilities are great, and Clemson, it’s selling itself. They just won a national championship.”

Hill attended Clemson’s elite junior day in January before returning on April 8 for the spring game.

On the first occasion, he was among the first group of prospects to see the completed football operations facility.

“It’s a great facility, with basketball goals and all that type stuff,” Hill said. “Just fun down there.”

Hill’s relationship with offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell is one of the main reasons he is considering the Tigers.

“Coach Caldwell is a very energetic guy,” he said. “Just a coach that always loves to coach me, and he’s just a great guy.”

Hill didn’t state any leaders in his recruitment or a timetable for his decision, and said “a lot” of schools are recruiting him hard.

The 6-foot-4, 330-pounder has more than two dozen offers, with Clemson, Georgia, Auburn, Florida and Florida State some of the schools in the mix.

What is he looking for in a school?

“If they treat me like family, a great atmosphere and how the coaches coach,” he said.

When he looks at Clemson, it’s the coaching staff that sticks out.

“All of them are like a family,” he said. “Just like it is, ‘All In’.”

Hill is ranked as the nation’s No. 2 guard and a top-100 overall prospect by Rivals, Scout and 247Sports.
