Friars Add Southern Big Man

The Providence Friars doubled the size of their recruiting class on Tuesday. Kinston (NC) High product Herbert Hill is a Friar.

Hill To Big East

Last week, we wrote how Kinston (NC) High's Herbert Hill had quickly become a target of numerous schools. On Tuesday, he narrowed his list to one and made a commitment. Hill is headed to Providence.

The 6-9 power forward, according to Providence Journal, committed to Tim Welsh.

Charlotte, College of Charleston, East Carolina, Oklahoma and NC State made recent inquiries. Oklahoma tried to get a visit out of him and Charleston was also in line for a trip prior to his making a decision.

Hill is averaging 14 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks in league play. Kinston is expected to factor into the North Carolina state playoffs in a big way.
