4-star recruit Lavert Hill receives standing ovation at Penn State hockey game

Lavert Hill, a four-star cornerback prospect from Detroit’s Martin Luther King High School, was introduced at Penn State’s hockey game against Wisconsin. Hill was in Happy Valley for an official visit over the weekend when, as part of the trip, he walked out onto the ice to a standing ovation from the crowd at intermission.

Back in November, Hill opened his recruitment back up after initially committing to the Nittany Lions ten months prior. Of course, the Penn State coaching staff has been recruiting him heavily to get him to recommit.

Although, there seems to be a bit of controversy around his hockey game cameo, in the form of an NCAA violation.

Though according to ESPN’s Tom VanHaaren, Penn State checked everything out beforehand.

I was told the Lavert Hill thing was vetted by PSU before it happened.

Though Penn State thought everything was kosher, it’s about what the NCAA thinks. We’ll see if anything comes out of it.
