Houston County lineman Trey Hill makes college decision
WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Houston County High School offensive lineman Trey Hill announced his college decision Monday night.
A short video after the Bears’ annual football banquet ended with Hill saying two words: “Go Dawgs.”
The No. 2 guard in the nation, according to 247Sports.com, chose Georgia over Auburn.
“It was just the coaching staff,” Hill said. “They made me feel like family. I mean, Auburn did too, but I just felt like Georgia was home for me.”
HoCo coach Ryan Crawford called the lineman “versatile.”
“As an offensive lineman at any level, all the way up to the pros, guys have got to be able to do a lot of things, and that’s what Trey can do,” he said. “Play right side, play left side. He’ll play interior for those guys, but his knowledge of the game, being smart outside of football and on the field, I think really helps him.”
Hill’s final four were Auburn, Florida, Florida State and Georgia. He narrowed it down to the Tigers and Bulldogs in the last few days and called Auburn coach Gus Malzahn Monday to let him know he was staying in the Peach State.
“It was very hard,” Hill said. “I called him man to man so he would respect me more.”
He’ll make his decision official when the early signing period begins December 20.
