Four-star Detroit King cornerback Lavert Hill has picked Michigan.
Hill announced his college decision this morning at the Detroit Public School League’s Signing Day celebration at the Horatio Williams Foundation.
A Free Press All-State Dream Team selection, Hill was ranked No. 3 on the Free Press’ Fab 50 list of state recruits and was a coveted national recruit.
While he tried making his decision, Hill was being tugged in both directions. His brother Delano is a safety at U-M, and he has a close friendship with cornerback Jourdan Lewis. Among MSU’s recruiting class, he has King teammate Donnie Corley and former teammate and close friend Demetric Vance.
Hill, 5-feet-11, 173 pounds, began his high school career at Cass Tech before transferring to King for his senior season.
A four-star recruit, Hill was having some fun leading up to Signing Day. On Monday, he wore a Michigan State sweatshirt to school. On Tuesday, he had on a Penn State sweatshirt.
Hill first committed to Penn State months ago but decommitted, re-opened his recruiting process and began focusing on Michigan and Michigan State.
There was a short flirtation with Clemson just before the national championship game, but Hill never took an official visit.
Hill began the most unlikely comeback in state championship game history when he caught a 23-yard pass to begin King on its 98-yard scoring drive that ended with Corley catching Armani Posey’s 39-yard touchdown pass on the final play of the game to give King the Division 2 state championship in November.
