Wisconsin Badgers running back Melvin Gordon is one of the most talented rushers in the nation and viewed highly by NFL draft scouts, so many were waiting for his decision on whether or not he would declare for the draft or return to Wisconsin for his junior season.
On Friday afternoon, we got our answer.
Gordon has decided to return to Wisconsin for at least one more year to fine tune his skills.

If Gordon were to have entered the upcoming draft, he likely would have been the first running back drafted after drawing comparisons to Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles.
By staying, he will now be in a loaded draft class if he decides to declare for the 2015 NFL Draft following his junior campaign.
