After losing 40-32 in the Fiesta Bowl, junior DT Trysten Hill announced via Twitter that he was declaring for the NFL Draft.

In his final season in black and gold, Hill finished second on the team with 3.0 sacks and had 10.0 TFL’s, including 0.5 TFL in the Fiesta Bowl. Hill even added a rushing touchdown as a fullback against SMU earlier in the season.

Draft Tek lists Hill as the 189th best prospect regardless of position heading into the draft. Given his early declaration, his stock could possibly see a rise in the coming months before April.

Congratulations on a great career, Trysten!
