Sophomore defensive end Don Hill (Timberline High) traveled to Texas with the Trojans, who play Alabama on Saturday night, but he was sent home Friday for a violation of team rules.

Hill and suspended linebacker Osa Masina are the focus of a sexual assault investigation, according to a Los Angeles Police Department search warrant obtained by the Los Angeles Times. Masina is also under investigation in Utah after a second incident with the same woman, according to records.

The woman told police that Hill engaged in sexual intercourse with her without her consent in Los Angeles on the same night as Masina, according to the LAPD search warrant.

Hill was arrested for DUI in Boise in January 2015, and missed spring ball this year after a violation of team rules.
