Hill Has Strong Showing At Pangos

Among the better wings in the Los Angeles area is Solomon Hill. The 2009 standout recently played well at the Pangos All-American Camp and we caught up with him for an update on his recruitment.

The 2008 Pangos All-American camp was full of talented prospects and among the top standouts this past weekend was Solomon Hill, of Los Angeles (Calif.) Fairfax.

The 6-foot-6, 180-pounder, who can play three different positions, did a terrific job of creating for teammates and hitting them with pin-point passes.


Hill Picks Up Offers
"I think it was pretty good," Hill said of the camp experience. "It was good to play with the mix of players. I also got a lot of time to play the point guard position."

"I think I did pretty good," he continued. "I didn't take a lot of shots but still was an offensive presence and was able to distribute the ball too."

Since the high school season end, Hill has spent some time in the gym working on different aspects of his game. His main goals are to start competing more and improving his jump shot.

"I have to take a bigger role with my high school team and I've learned to pick up slack without hesitation," Hill said. "I think my will to improve my jump shot has came along too."

During the spring, Hill managed to raise his stock among college coaches. At this point he's picked up scholarship offers from Oregon State, Utah, San Diego, San Diego State and UNLV.

Hill has also received interest from Texas, Kentucky, USC, Arizona, Kansas State, Gonzaga, Boston College, Michigan and Washington State. He's planning to attend the Trojans elite camp this weekend.

"Right now me and my dad are taking everything in and by the end of school were going to start nailing schools down," Hill said. "So it's probably going to be [a late decision]."
