Stefphon Jefferson Leaving Nevada Wolf Pack For The NFL Draft

Nevada Wolf Pack running back Stefphon Jefferson was the nation’s second leading rusher this past season and that accomplishment was enough for him to pack up his bags and head to the NFL.

Jefferson has signed with KMMSports and will enter the 2013 NFL Draft. He made the announcement official with a statement released through the university.

“I have decided to take my career to the next level and forgo my senior year to enter the NFL Draft,” Jefferson said. “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.”

Jefferson rushed for 1,883 yards and 24 touchdowns this season. He will join a very impressive underclassmen running backs class.
