Our most recent update of the 2019 Prospect Rankings has Brice Hill (2019) ranked at #100. After seeing more of Hill since, expect his spot to rise considerably, especially if he has a strong season at Seven Hills, where is relied on to lead the troops.
“I’m one of the top scorers on the team, I kind of have to be. But, as a captain, I have to lead the guys in a positive way … I’ve kind of been a leader on and off the court. Not just on the court, but in school also,” Hill said.
At 14.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2 assists per game last season, Hill is a key producer also. He’s especially effective as a shooter.
“Definitely shooting is one of my best attributes. And moving off-the-ball shooting, like one dribble pull-up shooting. Anything that has to do with shooting, that’s probably my #1 characteristic … I’ve always been a beyond the arch guy. But a lot of teams know I can do that, so I’ve increased my mid-range jump shot dramatically over the years,” Hill said.
Going forward, Hill is focused on improving his physicality and defense. He has the physical measurables and agility to defend the 2-4 at the Division II, NAIA, and Division III level.
That D-II level is where his first bit of college interest has come from early on.
“Hillsdale College, one of their coaches came to an open gym. They called the night before and then they came to the open gym and watched me play. They liked me a lot and said that I should go visit them later on.”
“Not much after that. Not many coaches have hit me up. I’ve been invited to a lot of camps,” Hill said.
Hill hasn’t quite setup a visit with Hillsdale, a small Division II school in Michigan, but he is planning on doing so in the future.
In looking at schools, Hill will try to identify a school that isn’t too big and has a family feel.
“School wise, looking for not too big of a school. Not like a huge school. I go to a smaller private school and that’s what I’m used to … Sports wise, a coach that is really close with their players — doesn’t just treat them as players. Almost like a family,” Hill said.
Hill currently carries a 3.9 GPA.
As he continues to carry the load at Seven Hills, and even with Shining Star in the grassroots season, Hill should open up some college playing opportunities. He has defensive flexibility and can shoot the pull-up jumper very well.
