At 6'2", 315 pounds, Michael Hill is a big pickup for Ohio State in more than one way.  Hailing from Pendleton High School in Pendleton, South Carolina, Hill is a top-notch defensive tackle ranked by 247 Sports as the 12th best DT in the class of 2013, and the 197th best player overall.  Scout and Rivals both rank Hill as a 4-star prospect as well. 

Hill's offer list included Alabama, Florida, LSU, Tennessee, FSU, Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina and Michigan.  He is the kind of big, run-stopping tackle that Ohio State has had a difficult time attracting in recent years, and is yet another stud Urban Meyer and staff have brought in on the defensive line.  As a junior he recorded 79 tackles and 8 sacks.

Welcome aboard Mr. Hill!

Well, Vrabel and Meyer have brought in an abundance of big time defensive lineman over the last 6 months. Can't wait to see all of these guys crushing B10 QB's. I wonder what this means for Billy Price. Do you think he will move to the offensive line?

Great question buckeyenut. With all the depth at dl and the need on the ol it makes sense to move Price. But he wants to play dl if possible. Will be interesting.

Another thing that bothers us is the fact that there’s only one picture with the watch model and even that picture has a pretty low resolution.
