RENO, Nev. -- Nevada running back Stefphon Jefferson has decided to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft this spring.

Jefferson set single-season Nevada records in carries (375), yards rushing yards, rushing touchdowns (24) and total scores (25). He ranked second nationally in both rushing yards per game (144.9) and points per game (11.5).

The junior from Visalia, Calif., said in a statement issued by the school late Sunday he will "always bleed silver and blue" but wants to try to take his career to the next level. He thanked the coaches and staff for all they have done to help make him successful.
