Jarvis Hill Has Leader

It may be hard to keep track of Jarvis Hill this summer, but a handful of schools will have a watchful eye on the Starkville High (Miss.) rising senior guard.

Jarvis Hill jumps around a bit. He played with the Magnolia Stars at the Kingwood Classic last month, ran with the Southeast Elite at the Smoky Mountain Shootout and will play with the Pepsi Challenge from here on out.

The 6-3, 190-pound Starkville High (Miss.) junior guard welcomed in coaches from Tennessee, Mississippi, Mississippi State and N.C. State last month and one of them has emerged as a clear leader: Tennessee.

``I took an unofficial visit to Tennessee after the Smoky Mountain Shootout," Hill said. "I loved it, but I still want to wait a little bit and weigh my options."

Other than the in-state schools and the Vols, N.C. State and Oklahoma are two schools who have emerged as legitimate players in his recruitment.

``I love the tempo that N.C. State plays," Hill added. "They are a guard-oriented team. I talked to the coach when he came to my school and they are probably second at this point. I definitely want to visit them."

Hill, who is still debating whether to go to the ABCD Camp or head to Atlanta for the adidas camp, said that playing time will be the most important thing when he chooses a college.

``I want to come right in and play right away," Hill said.
