WR Amp Hill no longer on team

Wide receiver Amp Hill, who transferred to the University of South Florida from LSU, is no longer with the Bulls’ program, USF assistant AD John Gerdes said Monday.
A senior, Hill would have been USF’s fourth-leading returning wide receiver. Last season he had 19 catches for 233 yards and two touchdowns, but perhaps was best known for dropping the tying two-point conversion pass with 15 seconds remaining in USF’s 22-20 loss to No. 23 Rutgers.
Hill did not play in USF’s spring game because of academic reasons. He also was disciplined for taking out a Sharpie - a la Terrell Owens - and signing a football after catching a TD pass in an earlier spring scrimmage.
As a freshman at LSU in 2003, Hill worked into LSU’s four-man rotation with future NFL WRs Michael Clayton (Bucs), Devery Henderson (Saints) and Skyler Green (Bengals). However, in the second week of fall drills, Hill tore the collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee — requiring three surgeries — and missed the season.
In 2004, he played in only three games at LSU, but in LSU’s spring game he had four catches for 80 yards, including an 8-yard touchdown. He received LSU’s most improved award after spring drills.
In Hill’s final two seasons at Jacksonville’s First Coast High School, Hill had 116 receptions for nearly 1,600 yards, earning prep All-American honors as a senior.
With only one season of eligibility remaining, Bethune-Cookman appears the likely destination for Hill.
