Hill, Landry, Turner announce they're turning pro
BATON ROUGE - LSU's top rusher and receiver are entering the NFL draft, along with one of the Tigers' starting offensive linemen.
In separate announcements Monday, sophomore running back Jeremy Hill, junior receiver Jarvis Landry and sophomore right guard Trai Turner have confirmed their intentions to turn pro.
Hill has played two seasons at LSU and was the Tigers' leading rusher each season. He rushed for 1,401 yards and 16 touchdowns this season.
Landry was expected to turn pro after racking up 1,193 yards receiving and caught 10 touchdowns in his third season.
Turner has started at right guard since the middle of 2012, his redshirt freshman year, and leaves with two years of eligibility left.
Hill's departure comes after Louisiana high school star running back Leonard Fournette announced he'd attend LSU.
