Kylin Hill, the SEC’s leading rusher, is headed to the NFL.

On Twitter, Mississippi State RB Kylin Hill announced that he has decided to forgo his senior season and declare for the 2020 NFL Draft.

After sharing the backfield during his first two seasons in Starkville, Hill was the focal point of the offense in 2019, and he finished the regular season with 1,347 yards on the ground and 10 TDs.

Hill is just 45 rushing yards away from setting the school’s single-season record. The Columbus native will likely break the record as it appears that he will play in the Bulldogs’ upcoming matchup with Louisville in the Music City Bowl.

Last week, DB Cam Dantzler announced that he will also leave early to declare for the draft.
