Today many highly touted high school recruits have announced what school they intend to take their talents next fall. Daxton Hill is the #1 ranked safety and the #7 overall recruit of the 2019 class. Hill’s announcement came as a total surprise to everyone as he was originally committed to Michigan, flipped to Alabama earlier this week and then signed with Michigan today. This is a huge signing for Michigan and although they already have what some would say is one of the best defenses in the nation this signing is just a plus for an already great defense.
This kid reminds me of a former star player and Heisman finalist for Michigan that you may have heard of before, Jabrill Peppers. If Harbaugh can use Hill like he used Peppers this kid can definitely be something special. He has the speed, strength and athleticism to have a similar career to that of Jabrill if Harbaugh can figure out a way to incorporate Hill into the offense.
