Biography: Full-time starter the past two seasons after seeing sporadic action with the first team as a freshman and sophomore. Experienced at both guard positions.
Positives: Strong, nasty blocker only effective in a small area. Works well with teammates, displays good blocking vision, and works hard until the whistle blows. Drives defenders off the line as a run blocker, attacks assignments, and keeps his feet moving throughout the action.
Negatives: Not light on his feet or effective in motion. Gets lazy with his hands and struggles to adjust.
Analysis: Hillesland has the size and strength to be used as a backup guard at the next level yet must improve the consistency of his fundamentals to make it out camp this summer.
