Dax Hill was already one of the top prospects of 2019, but he added a huge achievement to his recruiting profile.
Rivals.com upgraded the Tulsa (Okla.) Booker T. Washington safety to a 5-star prospect on Tuesday.
Hill, who’s the younger brother of Oklahoma State running back Justice Hill, picked up the extra star thanks to an impressive spring.
“Hill made his big jump into the Rivals100 coming out of junior season, and he edges up into five-star territory following a couple short, but very impressive, spring performances. From a size, speed and athleticism standpoint Hill is very similar to new No. 1 Derek Stingley Jr., but where Stingley plays cornerback, Hill plays the slightly less glamorous safety position. He utilizes those plus-athleticism skills in tandem with a physical style of football that translates into an elite safety prospect for the college level.”
Hill currently ranks as the No. 2 safety in the country and No. 1 prospect from Oklahoma, per Rivals’ 2019 recruiting rankings.
Where will Dax Hill commit?
Hill is still undecided, but he released his top-6 choices on April 27.
The elite 2019 prospect is considering Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Clemson, Alabama, Michigan and Ohio State.
Hill hasn’t given much indication to where he leans in the process. He’s talented enough, however, to take his decision to National Signing Day.
While some of the country’s elite programs are after Hill’s services, it seems the instate schools have a chance at landing one of the top defensive prospects of 2019.
It’d be a huge recruiting win for any of Hill’s suitors.
