Boise State linebacker Kaleb Hill (6-1/227), twin brother of current Texas Tech defensive end Kolin Hill, is transferring to Texas Tech. Kaleb Hill redshirted his freshman year in 2014 and played as a redshirt freshman in 2015 appearing in just one game. Kaleb was a 3-star recruit coming out of Samuel Clemens High School.

You can check out Kaleb’s highlight video from his high school days where he is a rangy defensive end in high school and the highlight video makes plenty of plays behind the line of scrimmage. He is definitely a three-star player, that’s about the right assessment I think. I’ve listed him as a linebacker, but both at high school and at Boise State, he played at defensive end, but he seems like linebacker given his current size.
The other thing of note is that I think it’s good that a brother of a current player is wanting to transfer to Texas Tech, maybe says something about how happy Kolin Hill is at Texas Tech and willing to talk his brother into transferring to Texas Tech. I think that says something about the culture at Texas Tech too.
