Jordan Todman will enter NFL draft
By Ted Miller
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl will be All-American running back Jordan Todman's last game for Connecticut.
Todman, who ranked second in the nation this year with 1,574 yards rushing, announced that he would forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft during a press conference following the Huskies 48-20 loss to Oklahoma.
"I felt like it was the right time for me," said Todman, who said he made the decision with his family around Christmas.
Todman rushed for 121 yards on 32 carries against the Sooners.
Said coach Randy Edsall, "I'm 100 percent behind him. We've talked and we've done research and given him the information that I received and what we received."
