LSU Running Back Jeremy Hill Announces That He Will Forego Junior Season, Enter NFL Draft

Big news.

It appears that LSU running back Jeremy Hill has had a change of heart. Just last week it was reported that Hill was likely to remain in Baton Rouge for his junior season with the program (he redshirted, so he is now eligible to leave for the pros), but this morning he took to Twitter to announce that he would be entering May's NFL Draft after all:

Hill rushed for over 1400 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013, and while his presence will be missed, the Tigers should be in great shape -- recent five-star RB commit Leonard Fournette should be able to come in and pick up some of the slack right away.
