QB Hill in trouble and out as starter
Sophomore quarterback Carlton Hill, along with four other men, was arrested June 26 for possession of marijuana, according to a University Police report.
According the Hillsborough County Sheriff Office’s Web site, Hill, 21, wasn’t booked, but released on his own recognizance.
Considered one of the team’s top recruits, Hill was in trouble before he arrived at USF. He was arrested and expelled from Jefferson County High School in March 2005, after he and a female student were found having sex in a school bathroom.
Rumors were floating around that coach Jim Leavitt might redshirt Hill, who had been named the starter following the Spring Game.
But according to a report in the St. Petersburg Times, Leavitt has said Hill will now play at receiver this fall, if he plays at all.
This leaves incumbent senior Pat Julmiste and red shirt freshman Matt Grothe to battle for the starting spot, while Indiana transfer Grant Gregory, who moved to safety during spring practices, moves back to quarterback.
