Michigan’s only five-star prospect in its 2019 recruiting class is expected to come in this summer and compete for playing time in the secondary.
But it might not be the only position he plays at.
Daxton Hill, who flipped his commitment from Alabama to Michigan on Dec. 19, the first day of the early signing period, told MLive during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl practice the Michigan coaching staff has brought up the idea of playing him on offense.
“They’re talking about putting me at receiver as well,” Hill said. “(They like) my speed. I think they said they didn’t really have any 4.3 (second) guys, so putting me on the offensive side helps.”
Hill, who’s listed at 6 feet and 186 pounds, played both sides of the football at Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As a senior this year, he had 79 tackles (six for a loss) and caught 13 passes for 360 yards and seven touchdowns, according to MaxPreps.
