2005 Focus: Jason Hill

Jason Hill, a 6-3 rising senior shooting guard from Reseda (Calif.), is a very intriguing prospect with a high ceiling...

Jason Hill, 6-3 SR SG Reseda (Calif.) Cleveland, has the kind of frame and athleticism that gets your attention in a hurry.

Long and explosive, Hill has improved his outside shot in the last year or so and he's starting to hear from some high major programs. He reportedly has some work to do in the classroom, but he has a chance to be a nice player someday.

We spoke with Hill yesterday and asked which schools have called him this week.

"Washington called this morning," said Hill. "Texas A&M called yesterday. Texas, UC Davis and Tulsa have also called."

Hill said Washington, Texas and Texas A&M would be his current three favorites.

We asked about factors that might influence his choice and Hill replied, "Style of play. I like how Washington plays. They run and gun -- how they go all out."

Hill said playing time would be a concern, but not a primary factor in his decision.

Hill has yet to take the SAT, but plans on taking the test in the fall. Once he posts a test score, he would then be able to take official visits. He said he would like to visit Washington, Texas and Texas A&M.
