The 6-foot-10, 215-pound rising senior big man at North Springs (Ga.) committed to Lute Olson and the Wildcats during an official visit this weekend.
``I liked the environment, the academic programs and the people," Hill said. "I liked everything about Arizona."
Hill was a virtual unknown heading into the Kingwood in mid-April, but he dominated with the Smyrna Stars – a la Korvotney Barber a year ago – and left as one of the most sought-after recruits in the nation.
However, Arizona assistant Josh Pastner got the Georgia big man on campus for his first official visit – and the Wildcats got Hill to pull the trigger.
Hill, who will attend prep school this season, didn't even play high school basketball last season because of academics.
``I sat out because my grades were slipping," Hill said. "But then I got them up and I got on an AAU team where I knew I'd get the exposure and I went out and showed up."
Arizona sees Hill in the same mold of departing big man Channing Frye, a long, athletic slender big man who can step out and knock down mid-range jumpers.
