GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Linebacker Alfy Hill has enrolled at East Carolina less than a week after he was ruled an academic nonqualifier at Alabama.
Alabama had said the NCAA's eligibility clearinghouse didn't accept certain classes Hill took as core courses for certification. East Carolina says Hill's high school is working with the NCAA to appeal the decision, though Hill will likely sit out this season.
Hill played at West Brunswick, located near the state's southeast coastline. He was a four-star prospect on Scout.com and was the first player from North Carolina to sign with the Crimson Tide since the 1980s.
