The state’s No. 2 basketball prospect is back on the free-agent market.

Ahmed Hill, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Aquinas high school, tweeted on Wednesday night that he has de-committed from Marquette.

Hill signed with Marquette last fall but decided to re-open his recruiting after coach Buzz Williams was recently hired away by Virginia Tech.

The 4-star was granted a release from his letter of intent after talking with new Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski, according to multiple media outlets.

What about UGA and Georgia Tech? UGA has filled both of its available scholarships for this year when it signed two bigs on Wednesday. Georgia Tech has an open slot, but may have filled the need by signing shooting guard Tadric Jackson in the early period.

One possible destination for Hill may be Missouri, which signed the state’s No. 1 overall prospect for 2014, Effingham County High School power forward JaKeenan Gant. Hill and Gant are best buddies from AAU basketball.

Of course, the most popular prediction is that Hill will follow Buzz Williams to Virginia Tech.
