Williamsport, PA (Future150) -- Flying well under-the-radar as one of the most talented 2021 prospects in the state of Pennsylvania is 5'11", 175-pound combo guard David Hill. The Williamsport native is set to have a huge career at St. John Neumann (PA), following in the footsteps of Delaware freshman Kevin Anderson and his older brother, 2018 NBA Draft prospect Alize Johnson.

His brother, a 6'9" late-bloomer currently averaging 12.9 points, 9.9 rebounds & 2.5 assists per game following a huge Adidas Nations performance in August, winning MVP of the event and garnering attention of NBA scouts from across the league, is one of the most interesting prospects in the upcoming draft pool. What's most intriguing about his development is that as a freshman at Neumann, he was a 5'9" point guard. Now a foot taller, his perimeter skills have set the tone for his possible selection in the upcoming draft.

Could the same happen for Hill? He's already ahead of the curve developmentally, and bigger at the same stage than his brother. However, regardless of future growth, he is already tracking as a future division one guard based on his skills. 

"My team goals for this season are for everyone to work hard and improve their skills and basketball IQ, so we all can become the best players' we can be. My individual goals for the season are to improve my defense and work ethic," he told Future150.

Modeling his game after current Alabama freshman sensation Collin Sexton because of his intensity and high motor, it should be a big freshman year for him.

His cousin, Chevon 'Chevy' Troutman, brought a state title to Williamsport High School (PA) in 1999 before moving on to an excellent college career at Pittsburgh before heading overseas for a successful professional career as well. However, he knows that his reputation will be based on what he does on the floor, not the rest of his family.

"I just plan on separating myself from Alize and Chevy by developing a better outside game than the two of them. With both of them having great work ethics, I want to push myself beyond theirs."

A standout at our Future150 East Coast Camp in September, he earned rave reviews from our staff.

"One of the most talented young guards in the state of Pennsylvania, all signs point to the 5'11" Williamsport native being a division one recruit down the road. He's smooth with the ball in his hands and can score from all three levels. He's also a sneaky athlete who gets off the ground quickly."

A strong driver with great court vision, expect a big season from the budding Central Pennsylvania rising star.
