A four-star recruit, Jalen redshirted and has entered the Bruins’ basketball program in 2017-18 season, but was sidelined on his freshmen year to follow the suspension handed by the NCAA authority with regards to his shoplifting scandal with both Cody Riley and LiAngelo Ball in China.

In the 2019-2020 campaign, Hill posted solid performances under the leadership of Mick Cronin. Providing much needed presence under the glass, he averaged 9.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game.

Hill unexpectedly announced his retirement in 2021, citing anxiety and depression.
