LJ: What teams are recruiting you the hardest?
Koby: I have Tennessee Tech recruiting the hardest right now. I recently just picked up interest from Virginia Tech over this past weekend and also Tulane.
LJ: For those who don’t know, you are the cousin of professional basketball player Darrun Hillard who was a star at Villanova. Has he been able to talk to you about how to play the game? What has he taught you?
Koby: We haven’t been in contact I am allowing him space to focus on his career and new family. I know how important it is to focus with no distractions. And I want to make it on my own name and merit.
LJ: What visits do you have scheduled?
Koby: Tennessee Tech wants me to visit at the end of my season which is in a few weeks or so.
LJ: What do scouts like about you and what has improved about your game that has made you a better player this year?
Koby: Scouts like that I can shoot the ball very well and I score at all 3 levels. I’ve really been working on building strength and getting stronger so that has helped a lot this year with my scoring ability.
I’ve also really improved on my defense I have been told I have pro-like skills which I credit my trainer former NBA player Mark Davis and my coaches at Miami Triple Threat Prep.
Scouts love how I shoot the ball from anywhere on the court. I have been told I have a natural ability to score on all 3 levels. Recently a scout compared my point guard skills to a quarterback because of my vision. This Post Grad year has allowed me to develop physically and mentally. I am much stronger and confident. Not to be arrogant but I feel like I can score at will whether at the basket or beyond the NBA 3. My defense has improved a lot due to my increase in strength and size.
I can guard the 1 thru 3. This is the reason why my steals have been up this year. I am always described as a shooter however I think I am a baller player who can provide whatever a team needs.
LJ: Talk about how talented your brother Kory is. How good do you see him becoming?
Koby: He is naturally gifted but young for his grade. He is a 17 yr. old senior. He is improving every day working with our trainer. He is a pure pg. He has the ability to shock the world however I will not be shocked at all.
LJ: When do you plan to commit?
Koby: I plan on committing on signing day hopefully I have the offer I want by then
LJ: What type of fit are you looking for in a program to commit to?
Koby: I am looking for a coach and team that appreciate my skills and what I have to offer.
