Jeremy Hill was one of the more powerful running backs that the LSU Tigers had in quite some time, however this season he will be getting ready to begin his professional career with the Cincinnati Bengals, who drafted him this past May. But that doesn’t mean that he won’t go out of his way to show his gratitude to his alma mater, and he did just that in a big way recently.
On twitter, Hill showed off some new ink he got on his back, which features a gigantic tiger, as well as Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge.

Now if that’s not loyalty to your school for life, I really don’t know what is.
Hill was actually eligible to return to LSU this upcoming season, and while he did contemplate it for a bit, he ultimately decided that heading off to the NFL right now would be what’s best for him. After teams passed on the running backs early on, Hill was one of the first off the board when the Bengals selected him with the 55th overall pick in the second round.
No matter where he goes in his career, though, his teammates in the locker room will never be confused as to where he went to college, that’s for sure.
