Ahmed Hill makes it official and signs with Marquette

Friday, November 15, 2013

Augusta, Ga--The recruitment of Aquinas basketball star Ahmed Hill has been on going for several years now. But today, it officially ends

While he verbally committed about a month ago to Marquette in the Big East, today, he made it official. One of the best basketball players this area has seen in some time, the last few years were full of stress and hill is glad it's now a thing of the past.

"It's a long process" said Ahmed Hill "You build relationships with these guys and you never try to hurt anyone's feelings and sometimes you just have to say no and pick what's best for you. It's been a long stressful process but I'm glad it's over now and I can go back to being a normal kid"

Hill wavered between Marquette, Florida and even Indiana before settling on the Warriors. Their coach, Buzz Williams, made several trips to Augusta and really sold his program to Hill showing how much they would care for him.
