Brandon Hill to attend prep school

Brandon Hill has confirmed to RecruitingNation that he will not be attending the University of Alabama this fall due to academic issues. The NCAA Clearinghouse did not clear Hill to play.

Hill told DawgNation's Kipp Adams that he will be attending Hargrave Military Academy and will play football while there.

Hill posted on his Facebook page that "This is just a minor set back for a major come back! You can't rush GREATNESS!!!"

The 6-foot-6, 355-pound offensive lineman is the only signee from this year's class to not enroll at Alabama. He was ranked as the No. 77 offensive tackle in the country.
