It was rumored that Kasey Hill might have been joining Troy Williams on a visit for tomorrow’s game against Louisville, but Garrett Tucker is reporting that won’t be the case. The class of 2013 may end up being the best in recruiting history for the Cats and while most would favor a Harrison twins combo over the talents of Hill, the dynamic 6’1 playmaker from Florida is a player highly coveted by John Calipari.
Scout ranks Hill as a five star player and the second best point guard in his class. This was their breakdown of his game:
He is a pure point guard, but Hill also has the ability to score when needed. A smart player, he does a good job of getting into the lane and finishing or finding open teammates. Also he plays with a great pace and never gets rushed. Now he isn’t the biggest player, and could benefit from more time in the weight room, but that is nitpicking and Hill does so many things to help his team win.
My friend, Hunt, was raving about Hill last night so I dug up his summer mixtape and it’s exciting to imagine what kind of monster class John Calipari could assemble in 2013. I’d still say that Nerlens Noel is my number one want, but Hill is quickly growing on me. I hope he enjoys watching the Cardinal beat down on TV.
