Will Hill's decision is made

Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep athlete Will Hill has made his decision and the verdict has little suspense. Hill, the nation's No. 17 player, took an official visit to Florida this past weekend and it's clear that the Gators will be getting a good one.

"He's announcing at the ESPN Zone in New York Thursday at 6PM," said St. Peter's head coach Rich Hansen. "It's between Florida and Southern Cal. He was supposed to take an official visit to Southern Cal this weekend but he can't make it because his mom can't take any more time off of work."

The announcement will be televised on ESPNU and will apparently be re-run on ESPN's Thursday Night Football on either ESPN or ESPN2.

"I think they're going to replay it at halftime of the game on ESPN2," said Hansen. "It's something he's decided he's ready for now."

Is there a chance that Hill will still take a visit to Southern Cal after his decision is made?

"It's not scheduled for now," was all Hansen could say. "I can't say for sure on that."

Hill first fell in love with Florida on a visit in July for Friday Night Lights. His official visit this past weekend, hosted by Tim Tebow, was clearly very impression and it looks like the future safety will be the first five-star commitment in the class of 2008 for the Gators and the eighth in the last three recruiting years for Urban Meyer.
