Kansas City (Mo.) North Kansas City defensive lineman Edric Hill was planning to announce his commitment on Sept. 24. The No. 103 prospect in the On300 decided to move that up to Aug. 22, so the four-star is now set to reveal his decision next week.

“I am ready,” Hill told On3. “I really had that itch to go ahead and commit, so I moved it up a month. There is a school that feels like home for me, I have found the place I want to be, and there is no reason for me to wait until next month.”

Hill’s final six schools are Alabama, LSU, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oregon, and USC. The 6-foot-3, 290-pound senior took official visits to Tuscaloosa, Baton Rouge, and Los Angeles over the summer. He has taken unofficial visits to the other three schools.

He knows he is ready.

“It came down to relationships and how comfortable this coaching staff made me and my family feel. Me and my parents have relationships with the coaches, they have a plan for me, and my feeling about this school is different. I know where I want to go.”

The On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine favors Alabama. Hill will let everyone know of his decision on Aug. 22. He is still finalizing the time for his announcement.

On3 Scouting Summary

Interior disruptor that is a consistent people mover who wins with leverage and raw power. Stands in at a shade under 6-foot-3, 285 pounds with a 6-foot-8 wingspan and 10-inch hand. Threw 46 feet in the shot put during his junior track and field season. Has the strike and pop teams covet amongst interior defenders. See some explosion in his get off. Ran an electronically-timed 5.00 40-yard dash, 4.65 shuttle and jumped a 28-inch vertical during the spring camp circuit before his senior year. Can get stuck in the mud at times when maneuvering laterally. Need to see some development in his change of direction in order to excel at the next level. Has the build, raw power and twitch to make an immediate impact in college. If he can loosen up and develop some more bend to his game he will become a surefire NFL draft selection. On the older end of the spectrum for the 2023 recruiting cycle.
