Hilliard also considered Notre Dame, Seton Hall, Iowa, Michigan and Boston College.
Hilliard averaged 18 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists last season while leading the Hurricanes to their first appearance in the Pennsylvania Class 4A semifinals.
He would join Montrose Christian (Md.) point guard Tyrone Johnson, Long Island Lutheran shooting guard Achraf Yacoubou and Brewster (N.H.) Academy center Markus Kennedy in Jay Wright’s 2011 class.
RIDER ADDS GUARD
Tommy Dempsey’s Rider team picked up a commitment Tuesday from 6-foot, 175-pound point guard Eddie Mitchell of La Salle High in the Philly Catholic League.
Mitchell chose Rider over Wagner and Niagara.
Rider previously got a commitment from 6-7 wing Shawn Valentine of Winslow Township in N.J..
Jeff Jones, a Virginia transfer, also becomes eligible in 2011.
