Hill is described to be a 6’3 guard who loves to get after it on defense and has the ability to create shots for his teammates.
While playing for coach Mike Teller and Robert Icart of BTI Bump n Run on the AAU circuit hill caught the attention of division one coaches from all levels. Coach Bo Ryan is known for finding players who fly under the radar and Jordan Hill is considered to be one of those players.
“Wisconsin was the perfect fit for me,” said Hill. “I loved the facilities, the team, the coaching staff, and all the school has to offer.”
Wisconsin is a blue collar program that always gets the best out of its players and after evaluating Hill during the month of July the Badgers coaching staff knew they had found themselves another gem.
“They are interested in me playing both guard positions and being the tenacious defender I am” said Hill. “I’ll definitely have to come in and work my butt off to get time and do what I want to do which is be an all big ten defender and start.”
Hill, who averaged 14.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game last season at Pasadena La Salle High School, will do a prep year at Phillips Exeter (NH) before heading to UW.
“I’m going to Exeter for a prep year to get better, stronger, faster and smarter.”
Hill chose the Badgers over Brown, Yale, Cornell and Dartmouth.
