In less than shocking news, Texas redshirt-sophomore running back D’Onta Foreman will be announcing Wednesday his intentions to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft, per Sports Illustrated.
Foreman, a 6-foot-1, 240-pound bowling ball of a back, rushed for over 2,000 yards and 15 touchdowns this season.
He did this all while missing one game and not starting a second due to injury, while also splitting time with true sophomore sensation Chris Warren III.
Foreman, whose twin brother Armanti is a wide receiver for the Longhorns, will forego two years of college eligibility to enter the draft.
In a move that only deepens a potentially historic running back class, Foreman looks to entice suitors with his massive frame that is complemented by surprising breakaway speed, as evidenced by a 74-yard run earlier this season.
Foreman has the necessary size, speed, and athleticism to be a feature back at the next level, and combines it with vision and patience beyond his years. If he can clean up a bad fumbling habit, we could be looking at the next NFL star in the making.
D’Onta is projected to go on the second day of the NFL draft per those close to the draft process.
