"There's some unfinished business to take of with my brothers," Hill said in his tweet. "The work has already begun. Let's ride."
Shortly before Hill announced his decision, Thompson tweeted out that he will also make the NFL wait one more year.
"My story isn't done being written," Thompson tweeted. "Our story isn't finished. There's much more to accomplish both as a player, student, and teammate."
Hill led the SEC in rushing last season with 1,350 yards. He also rushed for 10 touchdowns on the season.
Thompson had the most tackles by a Bulldog over the past two seasons with 168. The captain led the team in tackles last season and was second on the team in 2018.
