One-time OR football recruit Luke Hill was charged with felony first-degree attempted murder, felony assault and other misdemeanor charges in Maryland, ESPN reported.

Jail records show that Hill is being held without bond, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 19.

Hill, 18, allegedly fired a gun multiple times at Rhode Island basketball recruit Ishmael Leggett. Leggett was uninjured in the incident.

A Prince George's County Police Department spokeswoman confirmed in an email to ESPN that Hill was "charged in connection with a non-contact shooting" that took place at 7:30 p.m. Monday.
A source told ESPN that he had never applied for admission to the school. "The victim was not hurt". However, Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal indicated that OR had already parted ways with Hill for unspecified reasons.

Luke Hill had committed to OR, but this will set things back a little bit. Multiple reports have noted that Hill never formally applied to OR after he signed.

One of OR football's prized recruits in the class of 2020 now faces a long time behind bars if he is found guilty of any number of eight charges against him.

Hill was ranked as the 195th best player in the country, the 15th best corner, and the seventh best in the state of Maryland.
