226937_208372909203082_100000911230911_568771_1683767_nBelleville (IL) wing guard Malcolm Hill is one of the fastest rising prospects in the class of 2013. Strong performances on the spring AAU circuit led to the talented guard transforming from an unranked prospect to a consensus top-50 player. Hill recently took an unofficial visit to Michigan before attending Michigan’s College Practice Camp on Saturday. The Illinois-native took the time to discuss his visit to Michigan this evening:

On his game: I’m a slasher and I get to the basket very well. I play hard on the defensive end, I get to the free throw line a lot and I can hit the mid-range shot.

On what he’s working to improve: I’m working on rebounding and my three point shot.

On the other schools recruiting him: Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Xavier, Ohio State, Providence, UCLA and Wisconsin.

On current scholarship offers: Illinois, Missouri and SIU-Carbondale.

On his visit to Ann Arbor: It was good. I talked to the coaches, visited the campus and went to their camp. They showed me some great drills that can help me out on my game.

On what stood out: The coaches talked about how they can develop NBA players. We talked about Darius Morris and Tim Hardaway Jr. and how they did this season. That and the style of play, fast pace, is what stood out to me.

On if he discussed a potential offer with the Michigan staff: Yes, they told me the earliest they’ll probably offer me is June 15th and we’ll go from there.

On future visits: I’m going to Ohio State this weekend and Xavier the day after.

On how the visit to Michigan compared to previous trips: This was one of my favorite visits so far this summer.

On the criteria going into his decision: Education for one and then how I get along with the players and coaches. What my role would be on the team and also their playing style.

On cutting down his list:  No, I’m still just open.

On when he’d like to decide: Maybe sometime by next summer.
