GARDEN GROVE, Calif. -- One member of Southern Stampede's backcourt, four-star shooting guard Grayson Allen, decided to end his recruitment early this week by committing to Duke.
The other member, four-star Ahmed Hill, couldn't be further from making that choice.
Hill, a 6-foot-4, 185-pound combo guard who's playing AAU ball with the Stampede on the Nike EYBL circuit, has no favorites, no list, no decision timeline and no official visits set up.
Ask him for schools that are standing out, or recruiting him the hardest, and the list goes on for 30 or so seconds.
"Indiana, Florida, FSU, Marquette, Kansas, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Texas, Tennessee -- pretty much everybody on my list, really," Hill said. "I have a great relationship with almost everybody. Marquette, Florida State, Kansas, Indiana, Florida, Georgia, pretty much everybody. We talk probably every week. It's pretty good."
None of the above is standing out more than the others, and likely none will soon. Hill said he's going to try to trim his list to 10 before the Peach Jam in July, but he's not sure who will make the cut and who won't.
"I'm just taking it all in right now," Hill said. "I'm planning to cut my list before July before Peach Jam, and that's about it right now."
Even his in-home visits appear to be wide open at this point. He recently hosted Marquette, Florida State, Georgia Tech and Georgia, he said, and he was supposed to have Florida and possibly Indiana in his home this past week. But nobody separated from the pack during those in-home chats.
One thing Hill is sure of, though, is what he wants in a school.
"To have a great relationship with the head coach -- somebody who could be a father figure," Hill said. "To have teammates that feel like my brother -- we could do anything together. Have a great atmosphere -- feels like I never left home. And somewhere I know I can be in a safe place around my team and my coaches. That's about it."
Hill will try to get to some schools in May -- specifically Florida and Connecticut -- and he hopes to find programs that meet his criteria on those trips.
Until then, things remain wide open.
