After visiting Ohio State officially two weekends ago, four-star wide receiver K.J. Hill has signed with Ohio State this morning in a signing day press conference at North Little Rock High School.

A 6-foot, 190-pounder, Hill was originally committed to Arkansas but re-opened his recruitment on January 18th, days after returning from an official visit to Alabama. The 26th member of Ohio State's "Elite '15" recruiting class, Hill is the second pure wide receiver in the group, joining Lakewood St. Edward (Lakewood, Ohio) standout Alex Stump.

Ohio State and Hill have been in contact for quite a while, led by Buckeyes' defensive coordinator Chris Ash, who first got to know Hill when he was an assistant coach with the Arkansas Razorbacks. Despite never visiting Columbus prior to this weekend, Hill and Ohio State maintained regular contact: The Opening participant had scheduled an official to see the Buckeyes during the season but it never came to fruition. When it finally did, the Buckeyes made a big move with Hill and his family. 

Since his visit, Hill's recruitment has taken twists and turns but confidence from the Buckeye remained strong even in the face of reports that Alabama had made a late push. According to sources, Hill and his family informed Ohio State last night that he would be signing with the Buckeyes this morning.

Eleven Warriors will have more on the commitment of North Little Rock, Arkansas wide receiver K.J. Hill soon.
