Will Hill has some thoughts that run counter to the onslaught of criticism following Tennessee’s 30-6 loss to Florida on Saturday in Neyland Stadium.
“They could have won the game,” Hill said referring to the Vols. “I see they have the pieces to do that.
“Just some costly turnovers and mistakes cost them a chance to battle for the game.”
Hill, a 6-foot-4, 260-pound defensive end from Lafayette High School in Williamsburg, Va., saw the Vols up close and personal during his official visit to UT this weekend.
“It went rather well,” Hill said. “I liked the coaching staff and the environment.”
Hill said he plans to take official visits to Michigan and South Carolina before he announces his decision. Unofficial trips to evaluate Virginia and Maryland are also likely possibilities.
The Vols made enough of an impression this weekend that Hill is planning another trip to Knoxville.
“I’m contemplating the Alabama game,” Hill said.
That would be Hill’s third trip to Knoxville this year. He was also in town for UT’s summer camp.
Hill isn’t naming a leader yet, but the Vols certainly seem to be in good shape.
