Nebraska junior RB Ameer Abdullah announced Thursday that he'll return for his senior year.
Abdullah wouldn't have been a high draft choice, but running backs typically declare at a far more aggressive rate than other positions because they play a hazardous position that the NFL has devalued. Abdullah was a first-team All-Big Ten selection and a Doak Walker Award semifinalist this past season, scampering for 1,690 yards. "The average NFL career, because of the violent nature of the sport, is less than five years. In analyzing these truths, I have come to realize that life is bigger than football, and that my chances of long-term success in life will be greatly enhanced by completing my college education," Abdullah said in a statement.
