Nebraska football looks to have a strong Early Signing Day on Wednesday, and they were able to pick up a commitment from transfer corner Blye Hill.

Hill is from Baltimore, Md.  and originally played for St. Francis University. He recorded 21 total tackles last year and two interceptions.  Hill has three years of eligibility remaining.

Hill has several traits that should make him a good quarter for Nebraska for. He has tremendous speed, and can play on the outside. One of the things that was really noticeable was his closing speed. Even if he was beat on a play, he was able to recover and make it. He also is able to keep his eyes up when making a play, and that helps with his reaction time.

The corner measures in at six-foot-three, 165 pounds. He would be a best fit on the outside due to his speed and playmaking ability.

What could he bring to the table for Nebraska football

Hill should be able to make his presence felt for Nebraska football. He is also going to be a part of a very solid class in the secondary that includes the likes of Mario Buford and Donovan Jones among others. Nebraska football should be able to build their secondary with this trio, and that will provide stability moving forward.

The day is still young but Nebraska football is already making their secondary better. It will be fun to see how Hill makes an impact on a group that is already full with talent. This was a good get for the Huskers.
