North Augusta, SC--If things seem a little busier then usual in the area and there's a few guys taller then we usually see hanging around, no worries....it's the Nike Peach Jam in North Augusta. The best up and coming basketball talent in the country. Oh yea, all the big name coaches are here as well.
One guy who's already getting plenty of attention is rising junior Ahmed Hill of Aquinas. Talk about a budding star. The explosive guard has all the making of a top 50 recruit, which he is. While playing at home is making his life easier this week there's still some pressure as he's trying to prove he belongs on the big stage.
"I got to keep it stable and make sure they see and like what they see." said Ahmed Hill "I got to play stable and strong every night. Trying to show them that I'm a top five guy in the country and that I belong here and I can do this everyday."
Hill has plenty of verbal offers already on the table, from Connecticut to Kansas to Alabama and plenty of others. He's in no hurry to commit and is wanting to only get better before his decision is made. The Peach Jam continues through the weekend at Riverview Park in North Augusta.
