King CB Lavert Hill decommits from PSU; Harbaugh visits

Detroit King's Lavert Hill scores a touchdown before halftime of the Division 2 state final Friday at Ford Field.

Detroit King’s Lavert Hill scores a touchdown before halftime of the Division 2 state final Friday at Ford Field.

Despite being a Penn State 2016 commit, Detroit King cornerback Lavert Hill has spent his share of time in Ann Arbor this fall.

Apparently that’s no longer a conflict.

Hill, a four-star prospect whose brother Delano Hill is currently a U-M safety, announced his Penn State decommitment on Twitter tonight, writing he plans to take all of his official visits. Rivals’ No. 5 player in the state of Michigan, Hill had been committed to Penn State since Jan. 31.

With King’s state championship locked up in dramatic fashion on Friday, Hill now has time to focus on recruiting.

But it may not be a coincidence that he decommitted from the Nittany Lions tonight.

Scout.com’s Josh Newkirk reported that Hill had a few visitors tonight — Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and secondary coach Mike Zordich.

And Harbaugh told Hill he’s not backing down.
