Former Maryland four-star quarterback Kasim Hill will continue his career at Tennessee, per a new report from 247Sports' Steve Wiltfong.

According to Wiltfong, Hill was at Tennessee practice yesterday. He will have to sit out the 2019 season as per NCAA regulations.

Coming out of Washington (D.C.) St. John's College High School in 2017, Hill was rated the No. 10 pro-style quarterback and No. 233 overall prospect in the class. He chose Maryland from a bevy of Power 5 offers and appeared in three games as a true freshman.

In 2018, Hill won the starting quarterback role out of camp and started 10 games before an ACL injury ended his season. He connected on 84-of-170 passes for 1,083 yards and nine touchdowns against four interceptions.

Jarrett Guarantano returns as Tennessee' starting quarterback this season. He will be backed up by J.T. Shrout and Brian Maurer.

Next fall, the Vols can add Hill and four-star freshman Harrison Bailey to the mix. Guarantano could also be back in 2020 as a fifth-year senior.

Tennessee will open up its 2019 season next Saturday against Georgia State. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
