“To start, I would like to thank God for blessing me in all things and allowing me to walk the path that was chosen for me to walk,” Hill said in a statement on Instagram. “I am forever grateful for that. Thank you so much to my family for all of the unconditional love, support, and guidance throughout my life — I love you and appreciate you more than you know. 2020 has been an unprecedented year, filled with uncertainty due to a pandemic that has forced all of us to adapt as best as possible. With that, and after much prayer and discussion with my family, I have decided to opt out for the remainder of the season and declare for the 2021 NFL Draft. This has been an incredibly difficult decision, but one that I feel is best for me at this time.”

The memories that we have together will carry throughout our lifetimes and you will always be my brothers. Lastly, to the best fans in the country, I can’t thank you enough for everything that you gave me during my time at MSU! These last 3 1/2 years have been some of the best years of my life and I will never forget my time here in Starkville.”
