On Monday night during the Sooners’ 35-19 win over Auburn, junior running back Samaje Perine passed former Heisman winner Billy Sims as well as Joe Washington, Adrian Peterson and Steve Owen to become OU’s all-time leading rusher with a career total of 4,122 yards. And now, he has announced as of Tuesday morning that he intends to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

The 5-foot-10, 235-pound running back wrote: “playing for Oklahoma has been an incredible experience. I am so grateful for the opportunity and everyone who has been a part of it. That, being said, after much consideration, I have decided to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.”

Perine averages six yards per carry and has scored 50 touchdowns in his career as a Sooner, even tallying 321 receiving yards over the three years.

He entered the Sugar Bowl needing 83 yards to surpass Sims’s record, and late in the fourth quarter, Perine did just that, receiving a congratulatory tweet from Sims upon breaking the record.
