Alabama and new head coach Kalen DeBoer added a key player to their 2025 class with the commitment of 4-star edge rusher Justin Hill on Wednesday.

Hill, from Winton Woods High School in Cincinnati, picked Alabama over home-state Ohio State, Southern California and Oregon. He took official visits to all four campuses in the past five weeks.

The Buckeyes had prioritized gaining a pledge from Hill.

The 247Sports composite lists Hill as the No. 4 edge and No. 58 player in the nation.

Hill played in 11 games as a junior, making 36 tackles (16 for loss) and 13 sacks and forcing two fumbles, according to 247Sports.

With Hill's commitment, Alabama stands No. 2 behind Ohio State in the 247Sports national rankings.
