Matt Hill is ready to report

Matt Hill dominated the competition in the Nebraska high school ranks last season, averaging 21 points and 12.5 rebounds on a state semi-final team. While Hill dominated on the high school level, he knows that continuing improvement is the key for making an impact on the next level. Hill talks improvements amongst other things.

When do you report to Austin? June 1st.

What type of workouts are you going through to get ready for the next level?

I'm doing individual workouts with Coach Smith and an assistant. I'm also working on footwork, agility, balance and lifting weights three days a week.

What specifically are you working on in individual workouts?

Making everything faster. I'm working on a higher, quicker release. On my jump hook, extending higher is what we are working on because I'll get it blocked in college if I don't release high enough. I'm working on mechanics on my jump shot too. Making sure I elevate.

What are your expectations when you report June 1st?
