Hill also had an offer from Wyoming and had interest from in-state schools Texas Tech and Texas A&M. He is a two-star recruit according to Rivals and 247 Sports.
At 6’3” 190 pounds, Hill is a big WR who does a nice job of using his size to his advantage. His role at BYU will likely be a guy who quarterbacks look to in the redzone and exploit matchups on the field versus smaller corners.
Hill has gone a bit under-the-radar in recruiting circles, as he plays in a heavily run-oriented offense at Trinity High School (Euless, TX). Playing in that scheme, he led his team with 26 catches for 426 yards as a junior in 2017, good for 16 yards a catch.
Keanu comes from a football family. His father, Lloyd Hill, was a first team All-American WR at Texas Tech in 1992 and later drafted by the Chicago Bears in the 6th round of the 1994 NFL draft; his uncle is former Texas WR and NFL All-Pro WR Roy Williams.
Hill is the 11th commitment of BYU’s 2019 class and joins American Fork WR Chase Roberts as the second WR commit.
