STEPHENVILLE – The Tarleton Texans have added another important piece to the 2008-09 recruiting puzzle with the signing of Fort Worth native Cortney Hill to play for the men’s basketball team next season.

Hill, a 5-11, 175-pound guard, will transfer to Tarleton after playing two seasons at Weatherford College. He went to WJC after playing varsity basketball at Fort Worth’s Dunbar High School.

“Cortney comes from a very solid program at Weatherford College,” said Tarleton head coach Lonn Reisman. “He has been in some big games at Fort Worth Dunbar, including a state championship game. He knows what it takes to play in ‘pressure games.’ I have had the opportunity to see him play on several occasions, and we are getting a very good basketball player.”

Hill averaged 16.7 points per game his freshman season at WC and was selected to play in the Jerry Mullens Top 120, a jamboree of top junior college players in the country. He was a first team all-conference selection as a freshman and scored 35 points against Grayson County Community College. He also scored 22 points against eventual National Champion Midland College in his first collegiate season.

Limar Wilson and Mike Daniels split the point guard duties for South Central Regional finalist Tarleton State in 2007-08. With both gone, the Texans have wasted no time refilling the empty cupboard.

Tarleton announced the addition of a fifth student-athlete to its 2008 recruiting class Monday, signing its fourth point guard. Cortney Hill Jr. transfers to Tarleton after back-to-back first-team all-conference seasons at Weatherford College. Hill will be a junior during the 2008-09 season.

“I chose Tarleton because it's such a great program and because it's close to home where I have a lot of support,” said Hill, a native of Fort Worth. “My goal is to win a championship, and I think playing for Tarleton will provide an opportunity to achieve that.” Hill ran the point for legendary coach Robert Hughes, Sr. at Fort Worth Dunbar during his high school days before moving on to play for coach Mark Osina at Weatherford College.
