Interest Is Very Strong For Area Forward

Reporter Mike Sullivan has an update on Devin Hill, a forward from the state of Connecticut ...

It's hard for any high division one program to locate and recruit big forwards that have decent upside to their games. However, a college coach in the New York area doesn't have to look very far in trying to find that type of recruit.

Devin Hill, a 6-foot-9 forward from St. Luke's in Connecticut, is receiving high division one interest in his skills already. Hill is a 2008 prospect who has thrived under Billy Lovett, who handled the young New York City Gauchos team this past summer.

Hill, who smartly uses his frame to produce points around the basket, is expected an ACC school watch him compete this weekend. "I believe Virginia will have a coach to watch Devin play Friday," Lovett said.

Lovett has been a big supporter of Hill and his individual game. Billy is highly respected in the basketball world and in the New York area. So his words hold a lot of weight when it comes to discussing prospects on the high school level.

Seton Hall has already offered Hill and has been involved in his recruiting process for a hile. UMASS, George mason, Bradley, and Fairfield have also offered a free ride.

It's a big winter head for Hill as well as spring and summer. How he performs over the next six months will likely give us how many of the division one schools will seriously pursue and offer. Currently, the list is already impressive.

St. John's, Rutgers, Indiana, Cincinnati, Purdue, and Clemson have been on Hill's list previously.
