LSU running back Jeremy Hill has scored 22 touchdowns in one and a half college seasons.

LSU running back Jeremy Hill has met all but the community service hours terms of his probation, according to his attorney.

The third-year sophomore, who escaped jailtime after his second arrest last spring for battery of a bar patron, is expected to have his service hours completed by December, attorney Marci Blaze told the Shreveport Times.

"He completed an anger management class. He had a successful substance abuse evaluation. The fine, court costs and restitution to the victim have all been paid," said Blaize said. "All the conditions of his probation are complete except for his community service and the remaining probationary period."

Blaze said Hill's community service has been performed at a Baton Rouge fire station.

Hill will remain on probation until July 12, 2015. He was first arrested in high school for unlawful carnal knowledge of an underage female at Baton Rouge's Redemptorist High, and was on probation for that charge at the time of his second arrest.

Although Hill is just a true sophomore at LSU, he is eligible to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft because he is three years removed from high school. He didn't play in the fall of 2011 while dealing with the first of his legal charges. Hill ranks second in the Southeastern Conference in rushing yards per game at 111.3. Just midway through his second collegiate season, he already has 22 career touchdown runs for the Tigers.
