Volcano Vista standout guard J’Kwon Hill announced on Twitter Sunday that he has committed to play basketball at New Mexico Highlands next season.
Hill averaged 18.1 points, six rebounds and five assists per game as he led the Hawks to a 29-0 record and a state championship. He scored 17 points, had seven rebounds and two assists in the title game against Las Cruces. Hill made two clutch free throws with four seconds left in regulation to send the game to overtime.
Hill was named New Mexico’s Gatorade Player of the Year after the season.
Hill also thrived off the court. He had a 4.01 grade point average and has volunteered locally at food banks. He has also visited with patients at Carrie Tingley Children’s Hospital.
“We are very happy for J’Kwon,” Volcano Vista head coach Greg Brown said. “Being a state champion, a Gatorade Player of the Year and now having the opportunity to be a college basketball player is a result of all the hard work that J’Kwon has put into being the player that he is today.”
Hill will sign his National Letter of Intent with NMHU at a ceremony at Volcano Vista at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
