Delano is a good combination of size, speed, and overall athletic ability. He has the frame to add more solid weight and strength. As a result of playing much man-to-man in high school Delano is capable of playing either safety or cornerback.

We like him better at the safety position, but it looks like he may start at boundary corner. Delano shows the skill set to help on special teams. This is the type of player former OSU Head Coach Jim Tressell loved to recruit.

Strengths: Delano is a very good run defender who fills the alley and takes good angles to the ball. He is a sure tackler, but we must admit we get a bit nervous when Delano ducks his head when tackling.

On film Delano shows quick feet and acceleration and has the size and speed to be effective covering wideouts or slots and tight ends. Delano is a jack of all trades defensive back, one who shows the ability to play zone, man, or bump and run coverage.


Delano is a bit stiff and plays too upright at times. He shows quick feet, but needs to be more consistent regarding keeping his feet moving.

Final Thoughts:

We like this commitment quite a bit, Good Get!

We welcome Delano Hill to Michigan and hope he has a successful career on and off the football field as a student-athlete at the University of Michigan. Go Blue!

Red-shirt or play his Freshman Year?

GBMWolverine believes he will likely play his first year. He might help on special teams or at nickel as a true freshmen.

Delano Hill reminds the GBMWolverine Staff of — Michigan State Football Player — Marcus Hyde — who plays Safety.
