Hill a Lifelong Wolverine

Commit number three comes in for the Michigan Wolverines, Detroit Crockett tight end Khalid Hill.

Detroit Crockett tight end Khalid Hill became Michigan's third commitment today. Both Hill and his head coach Rod Oden confirmed the offer and the commitment, as Hill went up to campus today.

"He got offered 20 minutes ago. He jumped on right away," Oden said. "Michigan fan all his life. He said that if it ever came, there would be no reason to wait. He's comfortable here, he's a 4.0 student, so he was looking at the academics and he wanted to continue his relationship with Shane [Morris], a few of the other Cass guys he knows and build that tradition together."

Oden says he best describes the 6'2, 230-lb junior with "versatility." He caught 29 passes for 448 yards and six touchdowns as a junior and also chipped in 55 tackles and six sacks.

"He's a great pass catcher. He has the blocking ability of a lineman, the athletic ability of a skill guy, and the hands of a wide receiver, so he's a match-up nightmare. What he brought to the table for us this year was, he created mismatches down seams of the field."

He'll do the same for the Wolverines, but also fill a couple of other roles as well.

"It's a tight end/H-Back kind of deal. He's a utility guy, who will be motioning from fullback, get work done in the slot. They'll move him around a lot. They sat him down and told him how they're going to use him. They said he'd do a lot of what Kevin Koger did last year."
