Texas running back D'Onta Foreman will skip his final year of eligibility and enter the 2017 NFL Draft. Foreman announced his decision Wednesday afternoon, although it was one that was expected.
Foreman says he has signed with an agent and will begin preparing for the NFL right away. With Texas not going to a bowl game this season, that makes perfect sense.
Foreman is the nation’s leading rusher this season with 2,028 yards and 15 touchdowns. Foreman has averaged 184.36 rushing yards per game and has been one of the few bright spots for the Texas Longhorns in a season that saw head coach Charlie Strong let go. With his stock as high as it can get for a running back and with a change in leadership with the hiring of tom Herman, now is as good a time as any for Foreman to leave college behind and move on to the NFL.
Plus, you have to love Foreman’s response when asked about if he has a team he would prefer to draft him…
Excellent answer, D’Onta.
