For a second time in six months, Aquinas star guard Ahmed Hill has given his commitment to head coach Buzz Williams - but this time he's headed to the ACC. After he was granted a release from his commitment to Marquette earlier this week, Hill and his mother took an official visit to Virginia Tech and officially committed to Williams and the Hokies on Saturday morning.
When Hill originally signed with Marquette in November, he told WJBF News Channel 6 that he made his decision because of the relationship he'd developed with Williams, then the coach at MU and his assistant Isaac Chew. Then when Williams stunningly left Marquette for Virginia Tech last month Hill requested a release from his MU commitment and, along with fellow Marquette recruit Satchel Pierce, followed coach Williams to Blacksburg.
Hill is a four star guard ranked 54th nationally by ESPN and 69th by Rivals.com. He was the Class A private school player of the year and scored over 3,000 points in his prep career. He joins a Virginia Tech team that finished 2-16 in the ACC last year.
