The No. 17 ranked player in the class of 2007 Senario Hillman is as athletic as any prospect in his class, and the 6-foot-2, 170-pound point guard is a pretty good basketball player on top of that. From Irwinton, Ga., Hillman's Wilkinson Co. High School team has an outstanding 28-1 record under his court leadership. Out of all the colleges that would love to have Hillman lead them on the court, Hillman is looking closely at two of them.
"My top two schools are LSU and Georgia Tech," said Hillman. "Neither of them have offered, but both have been in to see me play."
Playing for the Atlanta Celtics, Hillman had a very good summer. He has maintained the momentum this high school season, averaging 25 points per game. This summer he will split time between the Celtic's 16-under squad and the 17-under squad.
"Senario is probably one of the most athletic point guards in the 2007 class," said Coach Wallace Prather of the Atlanta Celtics. "He has at least a 36 inch vertical leap. He is also a versatile player who plays the one, two and three for his high school team.
"His greatest strength is his midrange game, and he's working hard to extend his range."
Virtually unstoppable on the dribble, Hillman will be virtually unguardable if he develops a consistent long ball off the pass.
Concerning his top two schools, Hillman had these comments:
"With LSU, I just like the school and the way they play. Their coach gives them a lot of freedom.
"I like the coaches at Georgia Tech a lot, too, and I like their style of play. I also like the fact that it's close to home."
