Hill committed to the Buffs on October 20, a huge win for Deion Sanders and his staff at the time. When he initially committed to Colorado, Hill said he was planning to reclassify to the 2024 class and enroll early with the Buffs. But that changed after some conversations with his family. Hill will now remain in the 2025 class and reopen the recruiting window.
“Colorado continues to be a top priority for me,” Hill told ESPN. “I really want to take the process slower and make sure I’m making the right decision for me and my family at the end of the day. I’m going to go back to the market and make the right decision.”
Hill said Colorado is still in it, but he wants to see Texas A&M, Michigan, LSU, Louisville, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Alabama and Ole Miss before making another decision. He will try to visit Louisville in December, but does not have dates set for any schools.
Given his 6-foot-5, 215-pound size and ability, Hill should have plenty of options and suitors trying to pry him away from Colorado. As a sophomore in 2022, Hill threw for 3,663 yards, 40 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. He threw for 2,732 yards, 31 touchdowns and five interceptions this season.
He is the second ESPN Jr. 300 recruit to opt out of Colorado in the 2025 class, along with receiver Winston Watkins, who decommissioned on Nov. 12. With Hill and Watkins out of the class, it leaves Colorado with just one commitment in the 2025 rotation.
