Hill has four trips remaining

Ohio running back Alden Hill has four visits remaining and then he hopes to make a decision.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound back from Alliance (Ohio) Marlington has been busy this summer, hitting the road and checking out some of the schools that have been recruiting him.

A while back Hill camped at Michigan and Michigan State. Those both went well.

"Michigan ended up offering me coming out of the camp over the next few days. Michigan State said they've offered some guys at running back but they were definitely impressed. I think they're looking at some local guys first," he noted.

He then visited Boston College and UConn.

"UConn is my leader right now," he said, echoing recent thoughts. "Their facilities are top notch. They're some of the best I've seen and I've been around all of them.

"I like that they run the ball. That's a running back's school. They'll pound the ball 25-30 times a game. That's what you need to be successful at the next level -- someone that will utilize your position. Their running game is important to them and they'll do that first. Plus most of their coaches have NFL experience."

Up next for Hill? Visits to Tennessee and Vanderbilt next week.

"After those two visits I'm going to Iowa, hopefully for an official," he said. "I'm also going up to Notre Dame sometime in August. They've said they just want to sit down and talk to me but I think they're going to offer."
