Hill, No. 7 in the 2023 ESPN 300, chose the Aggies over Texas. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound Hill, from Billy Ryan High School in Denton, Texas, recorded 131 tackles -- 93 solo -- with 18 tackles-for-loss and eight sacks as a junior in 2021. With coach Steve Sarkisian and Texas stealing a lot of the recruiting limelight inside the state recently, Hill gives Fisher the key recruit the Aggies' 2023 class had been lacking.

"I feel like I'd be good at that -- just trying to get guys to play with [me]," Hill told ESPN last month. "Whatever squad I go to, I want to win a national championship and I just want to be a great teammate, great leader. So whatever school I go to, I initially want to be around some of the top guys." ESPN currently has Texas A&M's class unranked.
