Coach Dave Clawson on Thursday announced that Hinton would be back for his redshirt senior season.
Hinton played both wide receiver and quarterback last season, catching six passes for 61 yards. He also rushed for two scores in 2018.
He made four starts at quarterback from 2015 to 2017 and received a medical redshirt for his injury-shortened 2016 season. He was suspended for three games before the 2018 season for violating team rules.
