Former Arizona Wildcats forward Solomon Hill has been invited to the NBA's Draft Combine to be held in Chicago on May 15-19.

Hill, who confirmed he was invited via a UA spokesman, has been working out in Los Angeles in preparation for the draft. He is projected as a second-round pick.

The NBA invited 61 players for its combine last year, which is one more than the total number of spots in the NBA Draft. Former UA guard Mark Lyons is not scheduled to participate but he already showcased himself in the NBA's seniors-only predraft camp in Portsmouth last month, when Hill opted not to play.

It is not known yet if invitations were given to either former UA forward Grant Jerrett or former guard Josiah Turner. Jerrett opted to turn professional after one season last month while Turner played in Canada last season after spending the 2011-12 season at Arizona.
