According to the dailypress.com, former Clemson guard Donte Hill will not be eligible to play at Old Dominion for his senior season.

In 2010 during the preseason, Hill went to the new Clemson basektball coach at the time, Brad Brownell and decided to transfer.

Old Dominion's young men's basketball team is suddenly even younger, after the discovery that veteran Donte Hill exhausted his eligibility.

Hill, a Virginia Beach native who would have been the team's only senior, transferred to ODU from Clemson following the fall semester of 2010. He didn't play for the Tigers that fall, but the issue is a closed exhibition game in which he played in October 2010 that counted toward his future eligibility clock.

Hill and the ODU coaching staff were under the assumption that he had 21/2 years of eligibility remaining when he transferred. Instead, he had only 11/2 years. He played the second half of the 2011-12 season for the Monarchs and was a team captain and starter all of last season.
