Bears’ Trey Hill signs with Georgia

Trey Hill made it official Wednesday.

The Houston County High School student-athlete signed a Letter of Intent to continue his education and football career at the University of Georgia.

Hill, tipping the scales at 330 pounds and playing offensive guard for the Bears, said during the team’s banquet the week prior, that the Bulldogs had won the day – mainly over Auburn but with some other schools getting some early consideration – when it all came down to: “What I want to do and what feels like home to me.”

Depth-wise at Georgia, Hill, a U.S. Army All-American and four-star recruit, said he knew Georgia had brought in some players over the course of the past few years he will need to compete with for a starting role – one of those is graduation, he also said.

Regardless, Hill said, the bottom line is always the bottom line: “Everywhere you go, you’ve got to work, so I’m looking forward to going and working my hardest and hopefully can start next year.”

Hill, according to several Georgia-football-oriented websites, was expected to be one of 14 major recruits to sign during the early signing period on the aforementioned Dec. 20 day.

Nearby, that also included Kearis Jackson, the four-star wide receiver recruit – Houston County fans got a good taste of what he could do during the regular season – out of Peach County High School.
