The Opening: Delano Hill

National Recruiting Analyst
Posted Jul 11, 2012

Detroit Cass Tech (Mich.) safety and Iowa commit Delano Hill talks to Fox Sports NEXT at The Opening.

Iowa commit Delano Hill was one of the Midwestern guys who stepped up and proved he belonged with the best in the country, running in the 4.4s and making big plays during 7 on 7s.

"It was good," the Cass Tech safety said. "I had a fun week working hard, going hard."

Even though he has had an impressive summer and a great tournament, Hill says the other players at The Opening respected his commitment to the Hawkeyes and did not try to recruit him. In turn, he says he did not recruit any committed guys himself.

Since his commitment, life has been good for Hill, as the hustle and bustle of the recruiting process has died down.

"It's been cool, relaxing, but I'm still working hard."

He has also had a chance to talk to the Hawkeyes about where they see him play and what kind of opportunity awaits him there.

"Right now, they said I'm going to be playing free safety. There's going to be a senior there, I don't know a lot about the depth chart, but I know if I work hard, I'll have a chance to play."

Hill will take an official to Iowa this fall, but does not know which game that will be for yet. It will likely depend on Cass Tech and how their season goes, as the Technicians have big goals in mind.

"It's to win another championship. We have the tools to do it again, we just need to put it together."
