COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins will forego his senior year and will enter the NFL Draft.
Dobbins made the announcement on his Twitter account on Monday.
In each of his three seasons with the Buckeyes, Dobbins rushed for over 1,000 yards, becoming only the second to do so in school history. OSU also won the Big Ten title in each of those years.
During the Fiesta Bowl loss to Clemson, Dobbins broke the school's single-season rushing record, passing Eddie George. He is the only back in school history to rush for over 2,000 yards in a season.
In his latest rankings, ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. had Dobbins ranked third among running back prospects. Some feel he has a chance to be a first-round pick.
