OSU's Joseph Randle Entering the NFL Draft

Posted: Updated:

After telling us twice he was going to stay for his senior year, Thursday Oklahoma State running back Joseph Randle changes his mind.

Number-1 will make himself available for the NFL Draft.

Randle rushed for over 3000-yards in his three seasons in Stillwater and he scored 40-touchdowns.

His departure from OSU opens the door for Union product Jeremy Smith to be the every down go to back.

Randle tweeted to his fans Thursday. He wrote:

"I've decided to pursue my dream of playing in the NFL. I'll always be a Cowboy!"

He also said:

"I want to thank all of Cowboy Nation for the best 3 years of my life.  Also to the best coaches in the nation for this opportunity."

The NFL Draft starts Thursday, April the 25th.
