Arkansas basketball guard enters NCAA transfer portal, has interest in Razorbacks football
Justice Hill won’t be suiting up for Eric Musselman’s Arkansas basketball team in the 2019-20 season, but there is a twist to this transfer portal announcement.
On his Twitter account, Hill announced Thursday, “I entered my name in the transfer portal to assess other basketball opportunities that may be available to me. However, I hope to visit the Razorback football staff here in the near future to evaluate potential football opportunities with my Hog family.” He goes on to thank Musselman and former UA basketball coach Mike Anderson in the note (below).
Hill, listed at 5-11, 170 pounds, was a standout quarterback for Little Rock Christian, passing for 3,034 yards with 37 touchdowns and 4 interceptions and rushed for 1,000 yards and 21 touchdowns and was named 2018-19 Gatorade Arkansas Football Player of the Year. As a football recruit, Hill was a 3-star ATH on 247Sports, with football scholarship offers from Auburn, Memphis and Howard. Hill committed to Arkansas basketball in February 2016. In Hill’s time at Arkansas, Auburn football hired away former Memphis offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham.
Hill redshirted as a freshman with the Arkansas basketball team. In 2018, Hill also expressed interest in playing for the Razorback football team and shared that he was meeting with coach Chad Morris.
