2014 guard Ahmed Hill “very interested” in Indiana

Indiana tracked 2014 Augusta, Georgia guard Ahmed Hill closely during the July evaluation period.

The interest has continued as Tom Crean watched the 6-foot-4 guard at his high school Monday night.

“It was very nice they came the second day (of the recruiting period) and that Tom Crean came to see me work out,” Hill told Inside the Hall. “They were the first school to come.”

Indiana offered Hill a scholarship back in early May after watching him in the Boo Williams Invitational in Hampton, Virginia.

According to ESPN.com, Hill is the No. 25 player nationally in his class. He said his interest in the Hoosiers is high.

“I’m very interested in them. I like their style of play,” he said. “They set a lot of picks, rolls off of picks and they shoot it. That’s the kind of player I am so I think I would fit in.”

Crean’s stop to watch Hill followed a trip earlier in the afternoon to visit with 2013 forward Troy Williams at Oak Hill Academy.

Hill is expecting Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Georgia and Florida State to watch him later this week and mentioned Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, VCU, Clemson, Florida and Marquette as other schools recruiting him hard.

He said at the Peach Jam that he’d like to make a decision next summer and is now starting to get an idea of the factors that will be important in his choice.

“The style of play, a place that feels like home and just somewhere I can come in and be a big time player,” he said.
