Last season, freshman running back Jeremy Hill led the LSU Tigers in rushing with 755 yards and 12 touchdowns, but his future with the program could be in doubt. Hill was arrested over the weekend for his role in a bar altercation and the coaching staff has decided it would be best to suspend him indefinitely while they search for details.
Hill was also arrested in 2011 on charges of oral sexual battery. He later pleaded guilty to carnal knowledge of a juvenile.
The previous incident likely already had him on thin ice.
LSU head coach Les Miles plans to let the legal process play out before making any comments or further decisions about Hill’s future with the team.

Miles was in New York when the incident happened serving as an NFL Draft analyst. He can now return to Baton Rouge to check on the situation.
LSU lost Michael Ford and Spencer Ware to the NFL Draft this past offseason, so their depth at running back is already paper thin. It will be interesting to see how this arrest will affect the LSU running game.
