LSU RB Hill’s probation extended, can play for LSU

Jackson’s restrictions on Hill’s initial probation came in May. Those included a 9 p.m.-6 a.m. curfew and a ban from bars. Erwin ruled that those conditions would apply to his new probationary period, but added he would give Hill the flexibility to stay out later than 9 p.m. when his football schedule demands it, should he be reinstated to the team. Jackson had not previously attached such flexibility to Hill’s initial probation.

Hill also has been ordered to undergo anger management counseling and perform 50 hours of community service.

Hill rushed for 755 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012, his freshman season. Hill got increased playing time after season-opening starter Alfred Blue went out with a season-ending knee injury in LSU’s third game. Blue has returned this season, as has junior running back Kenny Hilliard.
