Carlton Hill is an incoming freshman quarterback from Monticello (Fla.) Jefferson County High School. Hill, 6-4 and 213 pounds, was the No. 13 rated quarterback in the land according to Scout.com and a four-star recruit.
Hill is a super athlete. Some schools like Miami wanted him as a wide receiver but he wants to play the QB position. Hill has excellent instincts in the pocket as he can "feel" the pressure and make a play with his arm or legs. He has good size, speed and quickness and a fantastic arm. Like any other incoming quarterback from the high school ranks Hill is raw and needs to work on all aspects of the fundamentals of the positon. But there is a ton of upside there.
Speaking of upside, the Hurricanes could have been right in projecting Hill higher as a wide receiver. To compliment his size and speed Hill has shown great hands playing that position part time in off-season workouts.
Only time will tell what position he ends up playing but one thing is certain, look for Bulls Head Coach Jim Leavitt to get this talent on the field this season.
As a senior, Hill finished the season 6-6 and passed for 1,764 yards on 144/268 with 20 touchdowns. He also had 145 carries for 1,191 yards and 12 touchdowns.
