New Texas Longhorns coach Tom Herman spoke with star running back D’Onta Foreman on Monday and after further conversions with his parents and twin brother Armanti, a junior wide receiver, Foreman has made a decision about his future, according to his father.
An announcement is expected at some point in the next several days.
A report surfaced on Monday morning that Foreman has already chosen Houston-based agency Select Sports from four finalists, but Foreman’s father, Derrick, denied those reports.
That report was likely premature, but does suggest that there’s a strong likelihood Foreman will leave for the 2017 NFL Draft and forgo his final season of eligibility.
CBS Sports currently ranks Foreman as the No. 7 running back in the 2017 draft class, with a projected draft range between the second and third rounds.
Foreman became just the second Longhorn to run for more than 2,000 yards in a season (2,028), joining Ricky Williams in that elite club. In rushing for 100 yards or more in 13 consecutive games, Foreman also broke Earl Campbell’s school record.
