The 6-foot-6 1/2 , 200-pound Hilliard, who plays with Galen Smith's New Jersey Elite team in the spring and summer, appears to have made the right decision – as he's received Big East and other high-major interest.
Hilliard isn't a big name nationally because Hun doesn't play a national schedule, but the athletic forward who still needs to improve the consistency on his perimeter jumper plays hard when he steps onto the court.
``He can do a lot of things," Hun coach Jonathan Stone said. "He's very explosive and can make plays you can't necessarily teach."
Hilliard aspires to have the same kind of versatile game as Sumpter, but it's his athleticism that has gotten the attention of college coaches.
``I want to go somewhere that I have a good relationship with the coaching staff and also a good college academically," Hilliard said. "I want to have something to fall back on."
He has already been to St. John's and Rutgers on unofficial visits – and recently took an unofficial to Georgetown for Midnight Madness. He also plans to head to Virginia and Richmond soon.
