Interest Picks Up For Hill

Solomon Hill has put together an impressive junior season and college coaches have taken notice. The talented wing spoke with and filled us in on his recruitment.

Playing alongside Renardo Sidney is beneficial for junior Solomon Hill. Not only does the 6-foot-6, 195-pound wing enjoy playing with the No. 2 ranked player on, but it's also helped his recruitment

With Sidney's big name, Los Angeles (Calif.) Fairfax has been invited to numerous tournaments and events across the country and at each stop this season Hill has gained a few more fans.

"We go to a lot of showcases and I end up coming back with information for another school," Hill said.

According to Hill he's being recruited by Oregon, California, Colorado, Colorado State, Utah, Utah State, Fresno State, USC, Texas and UNLV. At this point only UNLV has offered a scholarship.

"As of right now I'm hearing a lot from Texas," Hill said. "I'm starting to get some letters from USC. It's going pretty good and I've gotten some calls from UNLV recently."

"I'm looking at the schools that are looking at me right now and I'm breaking down most of them," he continued. "I'm thinking about taking a few trips this summer to a few schools."

The only visit Hill has set up at this point is to Texas. During the summer his plan is to head to Austin for the Longhorns elite camp.

As far as Hill's play this season, he's well deserving of the recent attention. He's averaging 13 points and 9 rebounds per contest for Fairfax, who is 17-3 on the season.

"It's been going pretty," Hill said about the season. "I've been able to play some different positions than I'm used to playing and I've been able to expand my game all around. It's been good."

"I play a few different roles," he said. "Sometimes I play the point and I bring the ball up. It just depends on what five is out there.

Luckily Hill has one of the best players in the country to fall back on if he needs it. Sidney, a 6-foot-10 forward, is capable of going off at any time and that helps relieve pressure off of Hill.

"It's nice to have some down in the post and it's pretty good to have somebody you can kick out to," he said. "It's pretty good and it relieves pressure off of me to have a big man in the post."
