Top-100 recruit Hill won’t attend Marquette after all
The highest-ranked member of Marquette’s incoming freshman class will not attend the school, as top-100 guard Ahmed Hill tweeted Wednesday that he’s received his release and will explore other options.
Hill is a four-star recruit and ranked as the 14th-best shooting guard in the class of 2014 by Scout.com. He committed to former coach Buzz Williams in October and signed later in the fall.
"To all the Marquette fans, students, and alumni," Hill posted in a picture message on Twitter, "I truly love Marquette and wish that I could have put on that uniform and played in front of you guys. Unfortunately, I chose Marquette because of the relationship me and coach Buzz an coach Chew had. I just didn’t feel that same relationship with the new coach. You guys school was great it truly was. I have been released from Marquette an I will decide on another college. This was a difficult decision that me an my family thought and prayed about. Sorry if I let any of you guys down, sorry MU nation love you guys."
Of Marquette’s incoming freshman class, Sandy Cohen is the only one to make it known he’s still coming to the school. Marial Shayok has reportedly already received his release, while the futures of Satchel Pierce and verbal commit Malek Harris with the Golden Eagles are unknown.
