USF may send Hill to junior college




A long offseason for USF sophomore Carlton Hill has taken another turn for the worse, as coach Jim Leavitt said Sunday that he is "leaning toward" placing Hill at a junior college this fall.


There seems little chance of Hill taking the field for USF in 2006, as Leavitt also said the chances of him taking a redshirt if he stays with the Bulls were "incredibly strong." Leavitt said going to a junior college could allow Hill to continue playing quarterback -- if he stays with the Bulls, they see him as a receiver in the immediate future.

Hill was named USF's starting quarterback entering spring drills, but missed much of those workouts due to academic problems. Making matters worse, he was arrested on campus in June with two former USF players on a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana.
