2017 NFL Draft: Wyoming’s Brian Hill will decide future after bowl game

Is the Poinsettia Bowl the final game for the Wyoming running back?

The Wyoming Cowboys are playing BYU in the Poinsettia Bowl Wednesday night and it could very well be Brian Hill’s final game for the star running back.

Hill is definitely an NFL caliber running back and he was in the top 10 in the nation the past two years running the ball, and he is Wyoming’s all-time leading rusher with just 30 career starts for the Cowboys.

A decision is going to happen after this game, despite what prior reports have said regarding Hills future.

“I’ll sit down with my family during Christmas time,” hill said, “and we’re going to discuss what we’re going to do.”

If agents or those wanting to know about Hill’s NFL future, he is deferring to his mom about any information he is seeing.

“Anything that has to do with it, it gets pushed back to someone else,” Hill said. “Agents contacting me, I sent them to my mom. I just don’t feel like it’s fair to focus on the future while I have business to take care of here right now.”

Running backs have a short NFL shelf life so sticking around an extra year to put up numbers or play for a good game is not always the best move. Wyoming has the chance to be very good next year as Josh Allen is back and the young defense should be better, so Hill’s decision will not be easy.
