George Jesse Hill Jr. was born in Indianapolis in 1986. Hill spent four years at Broad Ripple High School, where he averaged a state-leading 36.2 points per game as a senior, the fifth-highest single-season mark in Indiana High School Athletic Association history. He was selected to the prestigious Indiana All-Star Team and was named the City Player of the Year by The Indianapolis Star. Hill went on to play at IUPUI, committing to the school because of its proximity to his home and grandfather. He spent four years with the Jaguars, starting 87 times over his collegiate career and seeing his points per game numbers rise from 10.7 to 21.5 from his freshman to senior season. Today, Hill leads the George Hill Rising Stars Program, which endeavors to "use basketball as a vehicle to teach our young boys life skills". He hosts an annual tournament, the G3 Invitational, which brings over 200 teams to the Indianapolis area as a part of his foundation. More information can be found on Hill's website, g3risingstars.org. For his charitable efforts, Hill was awarded the Major Taylor Award in 2015 by the Indiana Black Expo, a non-profit corporation dedicated to the social and economic advancement of African-American youth.
