Ryan Hill

TE, 6-3, 230, Arvada, Colo. (Arvada West HS)

 

Tight end Ryan Hill is Nebraska's lone 2007 signee from the state of Colorado. He is the only player in the class expected to begin his Husker career as a tight end. Hill was an extremely versatile player for Coach Casey Coons at Arvada West High School. The past two seasons, Hill has produced big numbers from his tight end position, while also serving as the team's punter. An extremely athletic player, Hill was often split out wide as a senior and caught 42 passes for 924 yards with seven touchdown grabs. He posted similar numbers as a junior, hauling in 44 passes for nearly 900 yards and an impressive 15 touchdowns, helping his team to a 10-3 record and a state semifinal appearance. Hill was honored for his efforts at tight end, as he was named all-conference both his junior and senior years and was an all-state pick as a senior. In addition to excelling at the tight end position, Hill also served as Arvada West's punter the past two seasons. He averaged 42.8 yards per punt as a senior and was an All-Colorado selection as a punter. Hill is ranked as a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, who also ranks him as the No. 41 tight end prospect in the country and the 13th-best prospect in the state of Colorado. Hill is ranked as a three-star standout by Scout.com and is that service's No. 35 tight end. SuperPrep Magazine ranks Hill as the 10th-best tight end in the country and the No. 22 overall prospect in the Midlands Region. Hill's athletic accomplishments are not limited to the gridiron. He is a standout on his school's baseball team as a pitcher and third baseman and is considered a possible draft pick this June. Hill was one of Nebraska's first commitments in this year's class, and did not take any additional visits. Hill is the son of Doug and Tracey Remley, and was born on Jan. 28, 1989.
