2018 prospect recently garnered All-Tournament accolades at Bob Gibbons

PRP guard Trey Hill, a 2018 prospect, recently garnered All-Tournament accolades at Bob Gibbons. Scout has the latest on the rising talent.

2018 prospect Willie "Trey" Hill is a rising talent in the Bluegrass State that continues to see interest rise from school's in the region and beyond.

The 6-foot-4 guard created a bit of a buzz with his performance at the recent Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions in Suwanee, Ga.  He poured in 13 points, with six rebounds and four assists in his first game, while highlighting his offensive abilities in a 30-point effort another.  His overall performance led him to being named on the All-Tournament Team.

"It was a pleasure but I'm not satisfied," Hill told Scout.com of the honor. "Still working hard for more."

He collected an early scholarship offer from WKU and continues to see interest climb.  Louisville is among the many to watch him play, and he's made multiple unofficial visits with the hometown school. Vanderbilt, Wright State and Samford are also among the programs expressing recent interest.

"I love it," he said of the recruiting process.

WKU was the first to offer Hill, doing so under the prior coaching staff.  The PRP product was impressed by his early experience with the Hilltoppers program and is excited to visit with new head coach Rick Stansbury and his staff.

"I haven't been in touch since the new head coach, but before that I loved it," he explained.  "Somebody with the recruiting program would contact me every other week or every month."

Hill also expressed that Louisville's interest continues to remain strong and hopes to add an offer from the Cardinals.

"They've told me if I keep improving my game and keep playing like I am that there wouldn't be any reason for them not to offer me my junior year," he said.

Cincinnati, Murray State, Xavier and Ohio State are also among the growing list of programs that have Hill on their radar.

Playing for the adidas sponsored Louisville Magic, Hill's goal is to continue to improve his play and leadership to further increase his stock. 

"[I want] to be the team leader," he explained, adding that he'd also like to "become highly ranked and have a lot of offers."

"I'm playing really well and I got one more tournament and after that it doesn't start back up until July."

He admits that the attraction of playing for an in-state school is rather enticing and could be his eventual destination, but is also looking forward to learning what other opportunities may surface and how well he fits with the potential style of play.

"The idea of playing for an in-state school is a blessing, but when I choose a school to go to, I want to make sure the style of play fits mine."
