April 19, 2014 AUGUSTA, GA-- In recruiting, relationships make all the difference.
Aquinas star Ahmed Hill had a relationship with former Marquette coach Buzz Williams. Williams left Marquette for Virginia Tech in March. On Saturday, Hill has decided to follow suit.
Hill was granted his released from Marquette on Wednesday. A weekend trip to Blacksburg with his mom sealed the deal for the Hokies.
Hill announced his switch to Virginia Tech Saturday morning on twitter.
When Marquette granted Hill's release, Georgia's Class-A Player of the Year sent out a note apologizing to the Eagle faithful, but listed the coaching staff as the reason he committed in the first place.
Now, Hill will be back under Coach Williams as a Hokie in the ACC.
