Fort Scott C.C. defensive end Demetrius Hill committed to the South Florida Bulls on Tuesday and discusses his commitment with

After learning the news that former Freshman All-American defensive end Aaron Lynch would forego his final two years of eligibility to enter his the name in the 2014 NFL draft, coach Taggart and the South Florida Bulls might of found his replacement just shortly after with the commitment from Fort Scott C.C defensive lineman, Demetrius Hill.

"I thought overall it was a really good fit for me," Hill said. "I have a great relationship with coach Taggart and it's great knowing that my defensive line coach will be coach Mathis. He understands me a lot because he's from Chicago, so we have that good relationship. South Florida has also been known for having good defensive lineman."

The 6-foot-3, 245-pound defensive lineman finished the 2013 season with 61 tackles, 15 TFL, six sacks, three forced fumbles, and a blocked punt.

Hill becomes the Bulls' 19th commitment for the 2013 class and the second Junior College prospect to give their pledge to South Florida, joining tight end, Marlon Pope.

Asides from USF, Hill held scholarship offers from Baylor, Minnesota, Northern Illinois, California and Kansas amongst others. Hill will report to Tampa Bay on Jan. 6 to start his career as a South Florida Bull.
