Hill's List Takes Shape

Following a productive AAU season, Devin Hill is ready to tackle his recruitment. The New York big man is narrowing his list and is getting prepared for a few official visits.

The New York Gauchos were easily the most dominant team on the club circuit this season. They attacked opposing teams with defensive pressure and used their guards to push the tempo.

While the guards received most of the attention, they also had Devin Hill, of New Canaan (Conn.) St. Luke's School, holding his own in between the blocks.

"Individually I play a lot different on the Gauchos than I would say on my high school team," Hill said. "Individually I just tried to get better at my role on the team, which was rebounding, shot blocking and getting the ball out to the guards."

Despite not being the centerpiece on the ‘Chos, Hill still displayed a quality game and earned scholarships from DePaul, St. Louis, Seton Hall and UMass. The Blue Demons seemed to have made the biggest impression so far.

"It's different than most of the other schools because it's not close to home, but it's still what I'm used to. I'm from Connecticut, but I'm used to being in New York a lot. Chicago is a big city and I like big cities."

"With the program, I've talked to them a lot about what they want from me. I've heard from coach Wainwright himself that once I get stronger he wants to move me to the perimeter full time."

The 6-foot-9, 195-pound rising senior does plan to visit more than just DePaul. St. Louis has made a quick impact since their new staff arrived and they'll likely get a visit from Hill as well.

"For sure [I'll visit] DePaul and probably St. Louis because I want to know what they'll be like. Those two for sure and then probably UMass and Seton Hall and then we'll see if another one comes up."

Hill's official visit dates have not been finalized. He has an in-home visit with DePaul the week of September 10th. During that in-home, Hill plans to set up his date to visit DePaul.

Hill will take his official visits before making his college choice. A final decision could come by the end of September or in early October.
