"Recruiting is kind of crazy for me," Hilinski said. "I'm supposed to visit Colorado this weekend (Dec. 7) but that might change since they fired Coach Embree. I was very disappointed because I liked Coach Embree a lot and thought he deserved another year. He was a great guy and I really thought he was going to turn the program around.
Then I was supposed to visit North Carolina State the following weekend (Dec. 14) but they let go of their coach, Tom O'Brien too. I've talked to NC State a few times and I've been in touch with Coach Scherer at Colorado the entire time. They both still want me to visit and said as soon as they name a new coach, they'll trip me in."
Hilinski also received a recent offer from Wyoming and said he's interested in taking a visit there as well.
"I'm looking to visit Wyoming sometime in January," Hilinski said. "I also want to visit Yale sometime in January as well. I just have to see when I schedule the Colorado and NC State visits before I can schedule anything else."
