Oregon Ducks signee Luke Hil was arrested Tuesday on eight different charges, including first degree attempted murder, according to 247Sports.
Per arrest records, Hill has been charged with the following
- An 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
- First-degree assault
The former four-star recruit has a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 19, 2020, at 8:45 a.m. ET in Prince George County in Maryland.
"He was informed earlier this Spring that he would not be a member of our program," head coach Mario Cristobal told DuckTerritory in a statement Wednesday.
Justin Hopkins of ScoopDuck has reported that Oregon hasn't had plans of having him in the program for months. The University never gave him any admissions paperwork after becoming aware of character concerns and told Hill he would not be a Duck. Hill then deleted all Oregon presence among his social media.
John Canzano of The Oregonian reported that Hill was let go from Oregon following a series of "immature actions" in February unrelated to the current charges.
247Sports rated Hill as a four-star recruit, ranked as the 195th overall player in the 2020 high school class and 15th overall cornerback. He held offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, and other premier college football programs.
