Hailing from a football hungry area of the country, Senario Hillman knows how to pick the good gridiron games. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound jumping jack from Wilkinson County High School in Irwinton, Ga., has taken a pair of unofficial visits this fall and has his eyes on a couple more this year before his season starts.
Hillman, the No. 23 ranked player in the class of 2007 by Rivals.com, has tripped to Georgia and Florida State already this year and sat on the sidelines for a pair of good games.
Three weeks ago, Hillman went to Athens for the Dawgs game against South Carolina.
"I had fun there. I played with the players and then looked around in between the football game. That was a good game, too. They played South Carolina and beat them," Hillman said. "I've been there before with my team for a team camp. I like them. I think the visit helped."
On opening week, Hillman was in Tallahassee for the FSU-Miami tilt. That didn't disappoint either, he said.
"I didn't get to play with those guys but we just all hung out and watched the Miami game," Hillman said. "It was a good trip."
A trip to Tennessee is in the works for the weekend of Oct. 7 and Hillman said he'd like to get a look at Arizona, Clemson and LSU this year as well. Even with all of his planned trips, Hillman said he's got a core group of schools at the top of his list right now.
Arizona, Georgia, LSU and Wake Forest are all in good shape with the five-star youngster.
"Those are the top ones," Hillman said. "I really like them."
But don't expect an early decision from the class of 2007 prospect. He's just gathering information and making sure he sees some good football games in the process.
