He thought about North Carolina State and Central Michigan late in the game, but Zalon’tae Hillery is a Hurricane.

He’ll join his high school teammate DeeJay Dallas, who is already enrolled.

More about Hillery:

Zalon’tae Hillery


Status: signed

Size: 6-6, 280

School: Brunswick (Ga.) Glynn Academy

Stats: N/A

Stars: Four (247), three Rivals, ESPN)

Rank: No. 29 offensive tackle, 268th overall (247), No. 49 (ESPN), No. 83 (Rivals)

Projection: Starting tackle as an upperclassman. He’s light for an O-lineman, but has a large frame and lacks bad weight. He’s raw and it’s unlikely he’ll contribute early, but Miami is betting on his upside. He told a Rivals affiliate he prefers to play right tackle.

Fun facts: Late interest from Florida … Visited North Carolina State, Kentucky and Central Michigan … One of the players DeeJay Dallas recruited to Miami. The two were high school teammates … Committed to UM at Paradise Camp last July … Wore No. 75 in high school … Also played some defensive end … Rivals lists him as “Zalon’tae,” with an asterisk … Told a Rivals affiliate he plans to major in engineering.
