Hill impresses at EliteHoopsShowcase

MARRIETTA, Ga.- Day 1 of the EliteHoopsShowcase national event tipped off Saturday. The city of Memphis was well represented, but 2014 prospect Ahmed Hill of Columbus, Ga., made perhaps the biggest impression.

A well-built 6-foot-4 wing, Hill used his strength and athleticism to score at all three levels. Excelling in the open court, Hill has impressive potential as a primary perimeter scorer as well as a quality defender and rebounder.

Schools have taken notice of his talent. VCU, Georgia Southern and Mercer have offered while Clemson and Georgia have both hosted him on unofficial visits this year.

At this early stage in his recruitment, Clemson and VCU are the two schools that stand out to him.

LeRon Black (2014, Memphis, Tenn.)

A consistent competitor with an impressive motor, Black was the top interior player on the day. He rebounds outside his area and attacks the basket from the perimeter going right.

Offers are already in from Memphis, Ole Miss and Georgia, and Black is hearing from Florida, Kansas, Marquette, Kentucky and Louisville.

Treshawn Bolden (2013, Jackson, Miss.)

With his strong physique, Bolden was effective in the paint as a scorer and rebounder. He also did a nice job initiating the fastbreak off his defensive rebounding.

Presently he is working with a top four of Oklahoma, VCU, Tennessee and Marquette. All four have offerded.

Fattod Lewis (2014, Memphis, Tenn.)

A solid, left-handed athlete, Lewis played with as much energy as any forward on the day. He did his best work on the offensive boards.

Lewis is considering interest from Auburn, Memphis, Missouri, Arkansas and Minnesota.

Travon Landry (2013, Huntsville, Ga.)

A dominant on-the-ball defender, Landry was pretty impressive on the offensive end. He has a composed pace to his game, can get to the rim, sees the court and has a reliable outside shot.

Landry has been offered by Vanderbilt and Texas A&M is showing significant interest.

D.J. Griggs ((2013, Freeport, Texas)

Like Landry, Griggs has a complete game as a lead guard. He was most impressive with his timely and accurate passing on the move.

Duke recently called on the reclassified member of the 2013 Rivals150.

Justin Gray (2014, Tampa, Fla.)

Gray used his length and athleticism to make plays all over the court. He used change of direction and pace to slash to the basket, came up with balls on the defensive end and was a dominant wing rebounder.

South Florida has already offered this local prospect.

Jalen Lindsey (2014, Nashville, Tenn.)

Lindsay is one of the more athletic prospects at the event and put it to full use during his second game of the day, slashing his way to the basket for a number of impressive dunks and contact finishes at the basket.

Alabama is the latest high-major school to offer Lindsay.

J.J. Frazier (2013, Hinesville, Ga.)

Frazier just might be the fastest point guard with the basketball at the event. The left-hander also utilizes a crafty change-of-pace game to maximize his speed. His outside shot keeps the defense honest and he knows how to set up teammates while on the move.

Jacksonville has offered Frazier, and Auburn, Georgia and South Carolina are tracking him.
