Michigan junior CB Lavert Hill recorded an interception or pass defense on 25.8 percent of his targeted passes, the second-best rate among returning FBS corners.

Pro Football Focus also mentioned that Hill also allowed a measly .26 yards per coverage snap in 2017. He is one of the key members of their strong defense and was named to the second-team All-Big 10 last season. He will look to build upon his two interceptions from 2017 playing alongside a secondary that is one of the best in the country.

ESPN's Phil Steele lists Michigan with the best defensive back group for the 2018 season.

The Wolverines were the toughest team to throw on in 2018, allowing just 48.1 percent of passes to be completed for 150 yards per game. As Steele notes, every starter from that group is back in 2018. "Cornerback Lavert Hill was second-team All-Big Ten, while cornerback David Long, strong safety Josh Metellus and free safety Tyree Kinnel were all-honorable mention All-Big Ten," Steele writes. The Wolverines are also bringing on Casey Hughes, an 11-game starter for Utah last year. Michigan isn't exactly easy to run the football on, either, but completing passes against this group is going to be a challenge. For everyone.

In terms of Hill's overall body of work a year ago, the 5-foot-11, 177-pounder posted 24 tackles, two interceptions -- one of which he returned for a touchdown -- and seven passes defensed. He earned All-Big Ten second-team honors from the coaches for the campaign.

Michigan sophomore CB Lavert Hill has the highest playmaker index of any defensive back this season according to Pro Football Focus.

The playmaking index is defined by the amount of targets a player receives, divided by the amount of passes defended and intercepted. According to PFF, Hill has made plays on 37.5 percent of the 24 targets against him this year. That's a ridiculously high amount. Hill (5'11/168) will almost certainly start the year as one of the best cornerbacks on draft boards in 2019.

I am truly sorry for this offensive gesture and vow that it will not happen again." Hill, a former Nittany Lions commit, made seven tackles and broke up a pass in the defeat.

Four-star CB Lavert Hill signed with Michigan.

Hill also drew interest from UM conference rivals Michigan State and Indiana, but Jim Harbaugh's dark voodoo was too much to resist. The 5-foot-10, 176-pounder hails from Detroit, so his signature with the Wolverines isn't a huge surprise. ranks him at No. 97. Noted the outlet, "[Hill] has a natural knack for reading and jumping routes. Good, quick feet and ability to change directions. Technically sound and smooth in his backpedal and transition." His tackling needs work, but that should come along as he adds muscle.
