'It Was Good Talking to Them': Sherrone Moore, Chris Partridge Visit Booker T. Washington's Daxton Hill, Javian Hester

On Oct. 26, Michigan tight ends coach Sherrone Moore and safeties coach Chris Partridge traveled to Ponca City High School.

Not to see anyone from Ponca City but rather its opponent – Booker T. Washington High School.

Moore and Partridge watched 2019 five-star safety Daxton Hill and 2020 four-star wide receiver Javian Hester put on a show in Booker T. Washington’s 27-7 victory on Friday night.

“We were just talking about the team, the players and what happened during pregame against Michigan State,” Hester explained. “It was good talking to them and seeing both of us before our game.”

Hill, ranked No. 12 in the nation, No. 1 at safety and No. 1 in Oklahoma, committed to Michigan on Sept. 18. The 6-foot-1, 186-pound defensive back picked the Wolverines over Alabama, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and many others.

Hester, on the other hand, has just six offers – Arkansas, Iowa State, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State and Oklahoma. He is ranked as No. 78 in the 2020 class, No. 16 at wide receiver and No. 2 in Oklahoma, per 247Sports Composite.

“I’m interested in playing (at Michigan),” Hester said. “It’s a very good team with a great program. The coaches always show love to me.”

The next step on Hester’s to-do list is visit Michigan. He said he does not have anything planned for the near future but wants to get to Ann Arbor before cutting his list of schools.

Could Hill’s commitment change Hester’s recruitment process, leaning him toward Michigan? Yes.

“Just having a friend of mine (Daxton Hill) trying to convince me by telling me this and that can definitely help Michigan get me,” Hester explained.

Through seven games, Hill has 57 tackles, five tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles and one fumble recover. On offense, he’s accumulated seven receptions for 204 yards and four scores.

As for Hester, he has 11 receptions for 163 yards and one touchdown in seven games. His defensive statistics include 28 tackles, two tackles for a loss, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one blocked punt.

“I think I can fit into any offense I’m thrown in,” Hester said. “I’m a versatile guy, so they can use me for whatever.”
