Nebraska football should watch his recruitment closely.
Things may have slowed down in collegiate athletics, but recruiting is beginning to pick up. Nebraska football is very much in the mix for some of the top players in the country. Wednesday, 2021 four- star Florida athlete Tommi Hill announced his top five. Nebraska was in the mix.
Hill is the 24th overall athlete in his class, and the 54th overall player in his class from the state of Florida per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
In addition to Nebraska, he also has offers from the likes of Auburn, Florida, and Florida State.
What could he bring to the table for Nebraska? When watching his highlights, it is easy to see his strengths. In the particular bit of film I watched, he was used as a wide receiver. He was very precise when he was running his routes. He did not have a ton of speed. However, he managed to shake the defense and allow himself to get open. Precision and the way he moved around the defenders were two of his most noticeable traits.
At six-foot-two, 185 pounds, Hill is the perfect size for a wide receiver. Since he is listed as an athlete, Nebraska could put him at several positions. Given how the wide receiver and running back groups are shaking out, it would be interesting to see where the program would put him. The coaching staff has done a nice job of putting Nebraska football in position to succeed by adding depth at the wide receiver and running back position.
The 2021 Nebraska football recruiting class is already very strong. With two-four star commitments, the talent is definitely there. Adding Hill to the equation would add a spark to the offense. The Cornhuskers have already identified several players on defense in the class, most notably Randolph Kpai, the four-star defensive end.
It will be interesting to see where Nebraska Football is going to fall when it comes time for Hill to make his decision. There are certainly many colleges competing for his services, and they are top colleges to boot. Even if Nebraska football does not win the battle for Hill, at least it shows that Nebraska is willing to go toe-to-toe with the big-time programs in college football. They certainly have not been afraid to extend offers to players who are being recruited by the bigger-name schools. Scott Frost and his staff undoubtedly want to make the program better. Competing with the bigger guys certainly is a step in the right direction.
