A pair of key players from last seasons MSU squad are returning to Starkville next year.
First-team All-Southeastern Conference running back Kylin Hill and top defender, linebacker Erroll Thompson announced Wednesday they’ll be returning for their senior seasons with the Bulldogs in 2020.
Both made their announcement via Twitter.
“Mississippi State University means so much to me,” Hill said. “When I stepped off the field after the final game of the season last month, I thought it was my last time in maroon and white. After careful consideration, I’ve decided to return to Mississippi State for my senior season. I’m thankful and blessed for these last three years, but I’m also excited for the opportunity to play my final season in the Coach Leach era of Mississippi State football and continue the pursuit of my degree. There’s some unfinished business to take care of with my brothers. The work has already begun. Let’s ride.”
Thompson led the Bulldogs in tackles last season while Hill was the leading regular season rusher in the SEC.
“I can’t even put into words what this place and this family means to me,” Thompson said. “Really and truly, I’m thankful and blessed for these last three years at Mississippi State University. But my story isn’t done being written. Our story isn’t finished. There’s much more to accomplish both as a player, student and teammate. After praying and talking with my parents, grandmother and others who are so close to me, I’ve decided I’ll be returning to Mississippi State for my senior year. I couldn’t be more eager to continue competing on the field, in the classroom and in the community during my final season as a Bulldog. Time to get down to business. See you in 2020.”
