Nevada Wolf Pack running back Stefphon Jefferson has confirmed that he will forego his senior season and enter the 2013 NFL Draft.
The Visalia, California native was the nation's second leading rusher this season, with 1,883 yards in 13 games. He was also second in the nation with 24 rushing touchdowns.
Jefferson released the following statement:
“I have decided to take my career to the next level and forgo my senior year to enter the NFL Draft. I do want to thank Nevada and all the staff and coaches for everything. I could not have done it without the opportunities Nevada provided to me to be successful. I will always bleed silver and blue. I know that God has plans greater than football. But for the most part, thank you."
