CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon State tailback Jacquizz Rodgers said Monday that he'll apply for the NFL draft.
Rodgers, a 5-foot-7, 191-pound junior, finishes his college career with 3,877 rushing yards, second in school history behind Ken Simonton. Rodgers has scored 46 rushing touchdowns, also second to Simonton.
Rodgers is the school's career leader with receptions for a running back with 151.
Rodgers said he will return to Oregon State to finish his degree in ethnic studies.
His older brother, James, recently was given an extra year of eligibility after missing most of this past season because of knee surgery.
