Jalen Hill, 6-7, Power Forward, Corona Centennial, 2017 Class

-Tremendous frame (big shoulders, solid lower body) for a 16-year old that should fill out nicely in time
-Long arms (plus 5 1/2 inch wingspan) allow him to play bigger than his size.
-Extremely mobile player. Covers ground exceptionally well
-Multi-positional defender who shows great versatility on the pick and roll and stepping out onto smaller players on the perimeter.
-Nimble feet and excellent lateral quickness
-Possesses very strong footwork inside the paint and can score with very nice touch around the basket. Has good hands.
-Competitive player who runs the floor, tries on defense and generally gives a strong effort level
-Solid feel for the game
-One of the youngest players in the camp. Won't turn 17 for another six months. Still has plenty of time to continue to grow and improve his skill-level.

-Undersized for a big man at just 6'6 without shoes. Frame has filled out nicely in the past year, but doesn't appear to have grown.
-Does not posses a very high skill-level offensively. Had a very difficult time putting the ball in the basket in Treviso, scored just 16 points in 63 minutes against much older players, on poor efficiency.
-Shows some potential as a mid-range shooter, but has a long ways to go in that area. Only made 4/11 free throws. Career 61% free throw shooter in 37 games we have in our database.
-Still learning how to play physical inside the paint. Has a great frame but lacks strength. Had a very difficult time on the glass in Treviso (11 rebounds in 63 minutes).

Outlook Committed to UCLA. Big man with a great frame, but less than ideal height at this early stage. Right now a 6'7 PF/C. Impresses with the versatility he offers defensively, along with his footwork and touch around the basket, but will need to expand his skill-level and hopefully grow to emerge as a more interesting long term prospect. Did not have a great EuroCamp but undoubtedly this was a very good learning experience going up against much older and more experienced players. Will be 17 years old until midway through his freshman season in college.

One of the youngest players on the roster, pogo stick Jalen Hill (#33 Scout, NR ESPN, #37 Rivals, #35 24/7) measured 6' 7” in shoes with a long 6' 11.5” wingspan and a 209-pound frame. Hill is undersized for a big man at this stage of his development but he could very well still add a couple of inches, as he doesn't turn 16 until December. Hill already sports an excellent, chiseled frame that still has room to grow. The Corona native is one of the most athletically gifted players in his class, evident by the way he moves around the floor like a wing and springs off the floor with ease, showing terrific instincts for the ball.

Hill is more of a shot-blocker and finisher right now, as he struggles to score outside of the paint and doesn't show great touch in general. He has good hands, though, and some developing ball-handling skills. The Centennial High School big man has the tools to defend multiple positions, and if he's able to add a couple of inches he could very well become one of the better long term prospects to come out of this group.

We talked to him about as development as a basketball player and much more in the following interview:
