Just more than a week after receiving his first scholarship offer, Jamere Hill did not want to wait any longer. On Saturday, the 6’3” senior guard of Joliet West High School (IL) announced his commitment to University of Toledo and head coach Tod Kowalczyk via a twitter post. 

While Hill hasn’t held the offer from Toledo for long, he knew it was the right time to make his pick. “I felt like that was going to be the best fit for me no matter what other schools offered me,” Hill commented on why he decided to make his commitment now. 

“Getting more offers would have been nice and all but I feel like it wouldn’t of meant anything or changed my decision,” Hill stated on if any part of him wanted to wait for any additional offers. Other schools that had shown interest in the senior guard included Hofstra, South Dakota, Southern Illinois Edwardsville, St. Bonaventure, and Tennessee State. 

There were several things Hill liked about Toledo and influenced his decision. “I like the facilities, their stuff is really nice for a mid-major school, the conference is tough and I had good conversations with the coaches about my role next year,” Hill mentioned about the MAC school. 

In Toledo’s 2020 recruitment class Hill will be joining guard Ryan Rollins of Michigan and shooting guard Ra’heim Moss of Ohio.
