The Ducks and Hill apparently ‘parted ways’ a long time ago, however

A highly-rated recruit for the class of 2020, Luke Hill is in troubled waters after being arrested this past week, and currently is facing eight different criminal charges. While details have yet to emerge fully, he’s facing charges of 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.

That’s a lot of troubled waters, actually.

Hill’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 19, 2020.

He was ranked as the 10th-best prospect from the state of Maryland and hailed from St. Francis Academy in Baltimore, Maryland. He was ranked as the consensus 15th-best cornerback in the class of 2020 and chose the Oregon Ducks over at least 20 other scholarship offers.

While he was supposed to be on campus this fall, it was released by John Canzano of The Oregonian that Hill and Oregon ‘parted ways months ago’ according to sources. Apparently he was not given an application and never was actually admitted to the school.

If that’s true, the Ducks must have caught something in his recruitment, big enough to warrant not sending him an application.

This is still a developing story, and we’ll keep you updated when there is new information.
