Baton Rouge -- LSU fans will likely see a lot more of top recruit Leonard Fournette next season after running back Jeremy Hill announced today he's leaving school early for the NFL draft.

Hill announced his decision via Twitter page, "I am a Tiger for life. I will forever be grateful to my LSU fans, friends, coaches and family. This decision has been very difficult for me. With all of that being said, I have decided to forego my Junior season and enter the 2014 NFL Draft."

Hill rushed for 1,401 yards and 16 touchdowns this season, including a 216-yard, two-touchdown performance in LSU's 21-14 victory over Iowa in the Outback Bowl.

Fournette announced earlier this month that he'll attend LSU.
