One of the top running backs at the collegiate level has decided to ply his football wares at the professional level in 2014.
Kapri Bibbs announced Sunday that he has decided to leave his remaining collegiate eligibility on the table and make himself available for the May NFL draft. As a redshirt sophomore, Bibbs had two years of eligibility remaining before opting for the NFL.
In talking to The Coloradoan, Bibbs went third person in explaining his decision.
“At the end of the day, I’m the one who has to live with Kapri. When you make a decision in life like this, you have to be completely selfish,” Bibbs told the paper. “Every other decision I’ve made in my life has always had to do with everyone else and the team aspect, but this is something I’ve always strived for. This is the next step, one I’m willing to take right now.”
Bibbs is currently fourth in the nation in rushing yards with 1,741.
