Michigan snags Khalid Hill

Michigan's coaching staff has been holding steady at two commits in the 2013 class since Alliance (Ohio) Marlington athlete Dymonte Thomas pledge on Sept. 10. Today, No. 3 for the junior class came through when Detroit Crockett tight end Khalid Hill committed to the Wolverines.

"If you are wondering I did get the offer from U of M and I have committed," he posted on his twitter account.

Hill visited Ann Arbor today, and the Michigan coaching staff told him that they'd like to have him join the program. Once the offer came through, it was an easy decision to make.

"He got the offer from Michigan today to play their tight end or h-back position," said Crockett football coach Rod Oden. "He's a lifelong Wolverine fan."

Hill is a 6-2, 230-pound tight end whose soft hands make him a threat to catch passes, and whose speed makes him a threat once he has the ball in his hands. On top of that, he's the consummate team player.

"We had a lot of injuries this year, and Khalid actually played some on offensive line for us," said Crockett head coach Rod Oden. "He's that type of kid, very humble and will do what the team needs."

He was a key part of Crockett's 10-2 run during the 2011 season, and is looking for more of the same next fall.

"He won a lot of games for us, both as a tight end and a defensive end," said Oden. "This year, we lost a lot of receivers, so we're going to be counting on him to step up. I know he will."
