One day removed from officially commencing their 2013-14 campaign, the Marquette Golden Eagles received a verbal commitment from Ahmed Hill, a four-star recruit from the Class of 2014.
The 6’4”, 180-pound Hill, entering his senior season at Aquinas High School (Aquinas, Ga.), committed to the blue and gold on Saturday during his official campus visit this weekend, including observing Marquette Madness.
“I have a great relationship with coach Buzz [Williams] and coach Isaac Chew,” said Hill, who has scored more than 2,000 points during his prep career, as reported by ESPN.com. “I just needed to come and check everything out.”
Hill, a top-60 recruit, elected to migrate to the Brew City over the likes of Indiana and Missouri, among others, and represents MU’s third commitment in the class, joining Sandy Cohen and Malek Harris.
The Augusta Chronicle’s Georgia Boys Basketball Player of the Year following his junior campaign, Hill confirmed his collegiate decision via his Twitter account on Saturday afternoon: “Thanks to all the fans an coaches that have supported me through this process it’s been a great run, but I have committed to Marquette!!”
The versatile Harris, rated as the 14th-best shooting guard in his class by rivals.com, will be able to officially sign his national letter of intent on Wednesday, Nov. 14, when the fall signing period kicks off.
