Receiver Jason Hill says he's staying for senior season

By Seattle Times staff

Wide receiver Jason Hill announced today that he will return for his senior season at Washington State.

Hill had been considering entering the NFL draft but said he was influenced to return for his season season by an NFL analysis of his draft chances that put him in the late third round or fourth round. Hill said he would have turned pro if told he would have been taken in the first or second round.

Hill said he has three objectives in returning: 1) To improve his draft status; 2) To become "the best receiver who ever played at Washington State University;" 3) To complete his general studies degree, which he is on track to finish at the end of fall semester.

"I'm a Coug for anther year," Hill told a press conference in Pullman.

Hill said his mother and family were supportive of his decision.

Hill was a second-team All-Pac-10 selection and caught 62 passes for a team-high 1,097 yards and 13 touchdowns in the Cougars' 4-7 season.
