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.

    Running backs have the shortest shelf life of any position in the NFL.

    Can’t fault a guy for trying to make the most of that time.

    I wish him all the best, and continued success for Colorado State (that was a great bowl win).

    When you go to a small school you only have one maybe two chances to win a bowl game. Now that he did that it’s time to move on.
