Oregon signee Luke Hill, a member of the Ducks' 2020 recruiting class, has been arrested and is facing eight different charges including attempted murder in the first degree. According to arrest records in Prince George County, Maryland, Hill is charged with attempted loaded handgun on person, handgun on person, possession of a firearm by a minor, use of an assault weapon, use of a firearm, attempted first-degree murder, reckless endangerment and first-degree assault. A preliminary hearing for his trial is set for June 19.
Details of the incident that led to the arrest and slew of charges are not yet known. However, in a brief statement, coach Mario Cristobal indicated that Oregon had already parted ways with Hill for unspecified reasons.
"He was informed earlier this spring that he would not be a member of our program," Cristobal said, via the Oregonian.
Hill was a four-star member of Oregon's 2020 recruiting class out of St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, Maryland. He was listed as the seventh-best player in the state and the No. 15 cornerback recruit, as well as a top-200 recruit nationally. He signed with the Ducks over offers from Clemson and Michigan among other Power Five schools.
