Former Minnesota linebacker Aaron Hill, who originally joined the Gophers as a walk-on in 2009, is expected to sign with the St. Louis Rams as an undrafted free agent, according to Minnesota wide receivers coach and NFL liaison Brian Anderson.

As a senior, Hill was a leader of the Minnesota defense and notched 72 tackles, which included five tackles-for-loss, three passes defended and one pass breakup.

Hill, who made 192 career tackles while playing in 47 games, always seemed to make a play when the Gophers needed one. He forced five fumbles in his career and recovered three more, one of which was returned for a touchdown. Hill also made four career interceptions and returned two of them for touchdowns.

The St. Charles, Mo., native was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and twice received the team's Butch Nash Award for being competitive in the field and in the classroom.

Coach Jerry Kill on the expected signing of Aaron Hill with the St. Louis Rams
"
I am happy for Aaron who is expected to sign with the St. Louis Rams as an undrafted free agent. Aaron was one of the leaders of our team and always seemed to make a play when we needed one. He was also a tremendous student and was consistently named Academic All-Big Ten. I am excited for him and his family that he gets to begin his professional career in his home state."
