Weber State’s men’s basketball program received a verbal commitment from a 6-foot-7 small forward from Houston on Tuesday afternoon, the Standard-Examiner has learned.
Kyndahl Hill, a high school senior at Humble High who was also a well-regarded prospect as a defensive end in football, will join the Wildcats on the hardcourt for the 2012 season.
Hill is the second Texas recruit to commit to Weber State in the class of 2012, joining 6-foot-8 Joel Bolomboy, a power forward from Keller Central on the south side of Dallas.
According to ESPN, Hill had football offers from Kansas State, North Texas and interest from Iowa State.
Rivals.com reported earlier this summer that Hill had decided against playing football in his senior season, but a recent Houston Chronicle article indicates that Hill and two of his current Humble High Wildcats teammates form one of the best defensive lines in the Houston area.
A couple of interesting tidbits from the Rivals story:
Hill had 29 tackles, six sacks and three interceptions as a junior. His play on the gridiron earned him scholarship offers to Kansas State, UNLV and North Texas. His play also garnered interest from Texas, Arizona, Oklahoma, LSU, Alabama and Illinois.
Hill’s play in basketball has earned Division I scholarship offers, as well. He averaged roughly 13 points and eight rebounds for Humble and coach David Martinez, and as August slowly approaches, he is sitting on offers from Holy Cross, Weber State, Sam Houston, North Texas and UT-Arlington.
