Report: University of Arizona WR Austin Hill tears ACL
Hill was injured in practice on Wednesday and did not play in Arizona’s spring game on Saturday.
Hill had 81 catches for 1,364 yards and a school-record tying 11 touchdowns for the Wildcats last season, including catching eight balls for 175 yards and two scores in the Wildcats 49-48 win over Nevada in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.
It’s a huge loss for the Wildcats who will be looking to improve on a 8-5 record under second-year head coach Rich Rodriguez and also must replace quarterback Matt Scott, who is expected to be selected in the NFL Draft later this month.
The 6 foot 3 inch junior from Corona, Calif., was a second-team All Pac-12 selection last season.
