Detroit East English Village (EEV) took a big step towards defending their Detroit Public School League title Friday, after taking out Detroit Cody 37-32 in the city semifinals to advance to the championship game at Ford field this Sat.

Michigan tight end commit Khalid Hill was a big part of the East English Village effort, with a touchdown reception and many key run blocks throughout the contest.

“It was so crazy. We came out strong. They wouldn’t stop fighting,” the future Wolverine told GoBlueWolverine. “Every year we play them, we know it’s going to be a difficult game. We just came out and executed every play right. On offense we scored on most of our drives. We only punted one time with one turnover. Which is a great thing.

“Every game I’m getting better and better,” Hill said. “I did pretty good in the blocking game today helping my team out--getting yards and everything. So we’re going to keep going and working. We’ve got to keep getting better every day.”

East English Village will defend their title versus Detroit King, which upset defending Division-1 state champions Detroit Cass Tech in the other semi-final game 44-13.

While the Cass Tech versus King semifinal had yet to be played, Hill said it didn’t matter who East English Village would play in the PSL championship game.

“I want competition. It doesn’t matter whoever it is. Whoever comes to our table we’re going to deal with it and we’re going to get with it,” Hill said.

Campus visit

Hill was in Ann Arbor this past weekend for Michigan’s dominating 45-0 dismantling of Illinois. He said he will spend his official visit next Saturday, when the Wolverines play host to their instate rival Michigan State.

The three-star prospect said he hopes to get a preview of what campus life will be like on his visit, “Just having fun and go up there and experience college life.”

At 6-foot-3, 235-pounds, Hill says he has been focused on senior season and advancing to the state championship. While the future Wolverine is excited to get on campus, he says there is still work to be done this season.

“I’m ready to go up there right now if I could. But I’ve got to stay here and work with my team,” Hill said.

With only a few slots left in the Maize & Blue 2013 recruiting class, Hill says there are few players he wants to join him in Ann Arbor.

“I still want Lequon Treadwell and Derrick Green (to commit to Michigan.) I still want them to know they need to make that commitment and show us some love.”
