QB Taysom Hill tweets he's returning to BYU for a fifth season

Oft-injured BYU quarterback Taysom Hill announced via Twitter on Tuesday he was returning for the 2016 season.

Hill will be a fifth-year senior in 2016 after his previous senior season was cut short with a Lisfranc fracture in in the season opener against Nebraska. Hill has had three of his four seasons ended because of injuries.

Hill returning is certainly a boost for the Cougars. When healthy, Hill is one of the most dynamic dual-threat quarterbacks in the country. In 2013, his only complete season as a starter, Hill passed for 2,938 yards and rushed for 1,344 yards.

In 2014, Hill played in five games, passed for 975 yards and rushed for 460 yards before suffering a broken leg and a torn ligaments against Utah State. Even though he only played one game in 2015, he still passed for 268 yards and rushed for 72 yards before he was sidelined.
