4-Star QB Antwann Hill Jr. Commits to Deion Sanders, Colorado over Alabama, More
Class of 2025 quarterback Antwann Hill Jr. has officially committed to the University of Colorado over Florida, Penn State, and Alabama (via Hayes Fawcett of On3sports).
“What led me there is, first, their communication,” Hill Jr. told Faucett. “They always communicated with me since the time 12:00 am hit that morning on Aug 1st. To sum it up I can tell they really care about me and want me to take over the program when Shedeur leaves,” he said. “So whenever coach Prime said that, I knew he was being 100% honest with me and I knew I would be a fool not take this opportunity that coach Prime had provided me with.”
The 6’5″, 215-pound signal-caller will be suiting up for the school that he previously visited on Oct. 13 to watch the Buffaloes fall to Stanford by the final score of 46-43.
Sanders, Colorado’s current quarterback, has been getting NFL Draft buzz due to his impressive first season in Boulder. His 2,420 yards and 21 touchdowns through the air rank first and second among Pac-12 passers, respectively.
However, head coach Deion Sanders has said that his son will continue to play on Saturdays next season. This would allow Colorado to directly transition from Sanders to Hill Jr. under center.
The Georgia native referenced his close relationship with the university’s coaching staff when making his final decision.
“The coaches I’m closest with are coach Pollack, coach Box, coach Corey, coach Lewis. So like I said, it’s a lot of love being shown around at Colorado for me to have all those guys just close with me,” Hill Jr. said, per Fawcett. “So for other recruits out there, y’all need to go ahead and come to Colorado and get that real love from a coach that’s walked it and talked it from the college level to the NFL.”
This commitment shot Colorado up to 12th place in the 2025 recruiting class rankings, according to 247Sports.
Meanwhile, the current-day Buffaloes are looking to bounce back from the aforementioned loss to Stanford. With a record of 4-3, they currently sit at ninth place in the Pac-12 standings.
