Another USC football player has been linked to a sexual assault case involving Trojan linebacker Osa Masina.

Defensive end Don Hill was sent home Friday, with the team only saying he had violated team rules. But a search warrant and affidavit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court show he is under investigation for sexual assault. The document names it as the same investigation Masina is involved in.

Masina, who was not allowed to travel to Texas for Saturday's game against No. 1 Alabama, along with Hill are suspected of assaulting a woman at Hill's off-campus apartment after they gave her drugs and alcohol.

The court documents also say Masina is suspected of later assaulting the same woman in Utah, where she lives, two weeks later.

The affidavit reads: "The victim stated she did not agree to engage in sex acts and was in no position to do so. She knew for a fact she could not have given consent because she couldn't move, speak or recall much of the night's details."

Later, the affidavit describes the victim waking up, not knowing where she was or how she got there - all while hunched against a tree with only her bra on and the blanket over her."

"It has nothing to do with alcohol it has nothing to do with what the person who's been victimized is doing. The issue is somebody taking advantage of somebody and using alcohol as a means to achieve this crime," said Soto.

"Unfortunately, it's far too rampant at college campuses, but I think it can only improve with positive rhetoric and lots of discourse on what's appropriate," said David Gregg, a USC sophomore.

Neither player has been arrested or charged in the incidents.
