A former Ohio State football player, who played on the 2014 national championship team, was arrested Friday on a felony charge of intent to distribute methamphetamine in Parkersburg, West Virginia.
Michael A. Hill, 23, was a defensive lineman on the Ohio State football team from 2013 through 2017.
He is being held on $300,000 bond at the West Virginia North Central Regional Jail in Greenwood.
A drug task force arrested Hill, according to the Wood County Sheriff's Department.Get the news delivered to your inbox: Sign up for our morning and afternoon newsletters
Hill was recruited from Pendleton, South Carolina. He redshirted in 2013 and then was on the team for the next four years, playing defensive tackle. During his fifth year, Hill missed six games because of a suspension for undisclosed reasons.
After his Ohio State career, Hill last year tried out as an undrafted free agent for the Detroit Lions.
Hill was reported to have been a participant in a clothing business howshegoneeat LLC started by former teammate Tracy Sprinkle. Fellow defensive lineman Jalyn Holmes and Tyquan Lewis, who both play in the NFL, are also part of the business. The name for the company comes from a slogan that the players had come up with during their days at Ohio State.
