Malcolm Hill Commits to Illinois

Back in June, Malcolm Hill (Belleville East, IL) took an unofficial visit to Illinois and walked away without committing. Months later, he takes another unofficial visit but this time around gave a verbal commitment to the Fighting Illini.

Hill, a 6-5 shooting guard, held offers from Kansas State, Missouri, Southern Illinois and Xavier.

Hill was also receiving interest from powerhouse schools such as Indiana, Michigan State, Ohio State and UCLA just to name a few.

He is considered a top-50 athlete in a loaded class and is a huge addition to the 2013 class of Illinois that also features point guard Jalen James.

With a talented backcourt duo already, you have to believe the Illini will go big or on the wing in 2013.
