Hill moved on to play for the Nittany Lions as a three-star recruit from 2009-2012, contributing a total of 123 total tackles in his junior and senior year along with eight sacks. After finishing his career at Penn State, The first team All-Big Ten senior was selected in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks and ultimately won a championship ring in Super Bowl XLVIII.
