Transfer Guard Elijah Hill Hears from Mix of D1s, D2s in Portal
After recently entering the transfer portal, guard Elijah Hill is sorting through a jam-packed recruitment.
Hill has heard from several Division I programs, as well as other top Division II programs. The DII transfer shined this past season in his lone year with Chowan University in North Carolina, averaging over ten points and about five rebounds per game.
“I am a solid defender too,” Hill added about his skill set. “I was second team all-defense in the conference. I was pretty much the guy that was guarding the opposing team’s best player. But my ability to playmake on the floor, I feel like that’s my strength.”
Florida Southern, North Dakota, Virginia State, Arkansas Monticello, Sam Houston State, Portland State, Cal U, and more have all reached out to Hill. Now, after playing for multiple programs throughout his career, will location be a factor in his decision for his last season?
“To be honest, yes, it will,” he said. “This is going to be my last season, so I am really trying to set myself up for life after basketball now. I want to be somewhere that I think I can move to after I am done playing. At first, it wasn’t because I was younger, I was just bouncing around from city to city. But now, I feel like location will effect where I want to end up at.”
Hill wants to pursue professional basketball opportunities if they are presented to him, but he is also applying for law school to pursue a career as a sports agent.
