Hill Ends Recruitment; Headed To Pac 10

After contemplating his decision, Solomon Hill opted to make a verbal commitment. He'll lace them up for a Pac 10 program.

Over the past few weeks Arizona has been hot on the recruiting trail, gaining commitment from Greg Smith and Mike Moser. On Monday, their 2009 recruiting class got a little bigger, as Solomon Hill committed to Arizona.

"I felt it was a good fit," Hill, of Los Angeles (Calif.) Fairfax, said. "Especially with the great shooting guards and small forwards [that have been] coming out of Arizona."

Hill, a 6-foot-6, 190-pound SF has put together an impressive spring and summer. The talented wing is a versatile prospect that sees the floor, can really pass it and has the ability to play multiple positions.

He picked the Wildcats over scholarship offers from Kansas State, Washington State, USC, San Diego and San Diego State.

"Actually the fit for him," Hill's dad, Solomon Crawford, said when asked about his son's decision. "It was just a good fit for his game. Arizona is close to home, that's what it was. Arizona is a nice little program."

"It was just a good fit for him, he felt good about it and they are close to home," he continued.

Hill is currently ranked No. 19 at the small forward spot and No. 99 overall in the class of 2009.
