Running back Kenny Hilliard plans to return to LSU for his senior season, according to a tweet from his Twitter account Monday.
A team spokesman confirmed that the account belongs to Hilliard.
Reserve running backs Hilliard and Alfred Blue have been rumored as possible candidates to make the early leap to the NFL. Blue has not made an announcement.
Hilliard’s tweet came on a whirlwind of a morning as starting running back Jeremy Hill and right guard Trai Turner, both redshirt sophomores, announced their decisions to declare early for the draft.
