Former UCLA basketball player Jalen Hill has died after going missing in Costa Rica, his father said on Tuesday. He was 22.
“Our hearts are shattered,” George Hill wrote on Instagram, saying he was “unable to share any details at this time.”
Hill, a 6-10 forward from Corona, California, played 70 games over three seasons from 2018 to 2021, and averaged 6.5 points and 6.4 rebounds.
He missed the Bruins’ 2021 March Madness run to the Final Four and announced on Instagram in April 2021 that he was “done with basketball” after enduring “a bunch of anxiety and depression problems.”
Hill’s coach at Centennial High School mourned his death.
UCLA said on Twitter it was “deeply saddened.”
