Transfer portal target projected to Nebraska football

Forgotten in the Dylan Raiola hoopla is that Blye Hill also visited Nebraska football this weekend and is being projected to the Huskers.

As exciting as all the Dylan Raiola buzz is for Nebraska football fans, some other key recruiting targets are on campus this weekend, including one from the transfer portal — Blye Hill.

Hill is from Baltimore, Maryland, but wasn’t highly recruited from high school. He played last season as St. Francis of the FCS.

But the 6-foot-3, 165-pounder is an interesting name in the transfer portal after a productive season at St. Francis. Hill was credited with 17 tackles this season, two interceptions, and five passes defended.

It would be easy to forget that the transfer defensive back was even on campus for Nebraska football fans this weekend because of all the news surrounding Dylan Raiola and even Daniel Kaelin, who made news on Saturday by canceling a visit to Michigan State, which essentially re-affirmed his commitment to the Huskers.

As far as Hill, the Huskers have an opening at cornerback with Quinton Newsome going to the NFL. Omar Brown is doing the same thing but with DeShon Singleton and Marques Buford, as well as Isaac Gifford back, Nebraska should be set at safety.

Malcolm Hartzog will have a role too. He’s sort of the ideal nickel defender but can move around as needed. Hill would give Nebraska another talented defensive back and one that’s proven on the college level.

Brian Dohn of 247 Sports, an expert in the Northeast part of the country, has put in a crystal ball projection for Hill to commit to the Huskers, so some good news and a potential starter in the secondary, could be on the way.
