Four schools in play for Hill

Four-star prospect Solomon Hill is in the process of figuring out his recruitment after decommitting from Arizona in the wake of Lute Olson's retirement. The skilled wing prospect is primarily looking at three schools with a fourth school set to make a pitch today for him at Los Angeles Fairfax High School.
"USC, Georgetown and Kentucky are the schools I'm looking at," said the 6-foot-6, 210-pound Hill. "You could say that I'm down to those three."
Kansas State is also working to get into the mix with Coach Frank Martin scheduled to visit with Hill today.
This past weekend Hill spent a lot of time on the USC campus. With Hill's desire to sign early, the proximity of USC gives the Trojans a decided advantage at this point in his recruitment.
"The visit to USC went pretty well," said Hill. "Coach Floyd talked a lot about what position I'd play and how they would use me.
"I might be able to get one more visit in before the signing period. If I can make a trip, it will be to Georgetown. I'm more interested in them than Kentucky because of the type of system they run. It's a good program, and I couldn't go wrong going there. I would get to play everywhere on the court and have a chance to do a lot of different things on the court."
It is Hill's versatility that makes him such an attractive prospect. He is extremely adept at putting the ball on the floor and creating scoring opportunities for teammates with his feel for passing the ball. He also rebounds his position at a high level. According to Fairfax coach Harvey Kitani, Hill is also developing as a scorer.
"His body is really developing, and when he takes it to the rack, he just keeps going and going," said Kitani. "Now he is really adjusting his shot in the air and getting the ball in the basket. When he played this summer for us with Renardo (Sidney) out, he really scored the ball. On college coach has told Solomon that he won't be there four years. That is how much Solomon is improving."
Hill is the No. 28 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
