From a video announcement via the official Sun Devil football Twitter, on Wednesday running back Eno Benjamin has declared for the NFL Draft and will forego his senior season:

Most draft experts and sites have Benjamin’s current stock at around a Day Two pick (Rounds two and three). Benjamin made no indication whether or not he’d play in the team’s Sun Bowl game against Florida State, but it’s known that Herm Edwards and staff support players doing what is in their best interest.

Benjamin will end his three-year tenure — unless he plays in the bowl game of course — with 2,867 yards (seventh in ASU history), 27 rushing touchdowns (sixth) plus an additional four receiving touchdowns.

As for now Benjamin will stay as the school’s single season record holder in rushing yards (1,642) and attempts (300) from his breakout sophomore campaign.
