The University of Oregon announced today that freshman defensive back Troy Hill has been cleared by the NCAA to join the Oregon Ducks as part of the 2010 recruiting class. Hill's eligibility had been in question due to a filing error that was uncovered by the University of Oregon compliance department.

The error indicated that Troy Hill had attended high school classes in Youngstown, Ohio, the year before enrolling at St. Bonaventure as a freshman in January 2007.

Consequently, Hill's high school eligibility clock officially began in 2005 and should have ended during the spring of 2009. The error caused St. Bonaventure to forfeit 11 wins in 2009 along with a league championship.

A more detailed explanation of Hill's situation was reported by the Ventura County Star's online site, in a story entitled Hill turned his life around at St. Bonaventure

Hill was rated three stars by and was the No. 54 player at his position. He is eligible to begin practice immediately upon his arrival at Oregon and will begin classes for fall term starting Sept. 27th.
