Former UCLA basketball player Jalen Hill has died at the age of 22

Former UCLA basketball player Jalen Hill has died at the age of 22.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Hill’s family said he died after he went missing during a trip to Costa Rica, but no further details were released.

In a tweet, the university basketball team said it was sad to learn of Hill’s death and offered their condolences to his family.

Hill was a star at Centennial High School in Corona and led the Huskies to the 2017 CIF Southern Section Regional Division I Championship Game as a senior. He was ranked No. 47 in his high school class nationally by ESPN.com.

The 6-foot-10 Hillman played 77 games for UCLA over three seasons, starting 40 games and averaging 6.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Hill played his last game for the Bruins on January 30, 2021, going scoreless against Oregon State in 11 minutes. The team announced the following week that he was sitting out a game against USC for personal reasons.

Hill later said the reason he never came back to play was because of anxiety and depression after putting undue pressure on himself to succeed.

“It was a difficult decision, but once I knew what I had to do, it wasn’t difficult, I found out, like that helped me,” Hill said in an interview with The Times in 2021.
