According to The Robesonian, former West Brunswick standout Alfy Hill has committed to play football for UNC-Pembroke.

Hill was a defensive starter at Los Angeles Valley Community College in 2012.  UNC-P head coach Pete Shinnick, who's father Don Shinnick played and later coached at LAVCC, could not be reached to confirm the commitment.  LAVCC athletic director Jim Fenwick was also unable to confirm the move and indicated football coach Larry Kerr was unavailable. 

Hill, who has been with four different college programs since leaving Shallotte, had verbally committed to South Carolina where he expected to compete for a starting role on the Gamecocks defense.  

Prior to his senior season at West Brunswick Hill committed to Alabama and was enrolled in classes in Tuscaloosa before being ruled academically ineligible by the NCAA.  

"There is just a new standard for whatever reasons. I don't know all the details."  Alabama head coach Nick Saban said during a 2010 press conference.  "A few of his courses are not accepted after they were reviewed, so that put him as a non-qualifier. We had limited options with him."

As a non-qualifier he enrolled at East Carolina before leaving to attend a junior college in Mississippi.

The college signing period for mid-year Junior College transfers ends Tuesday.
