Indiana running back Jordan Howard has been one of the most surprising players this season as he has been one of the best rushers in the Big Ten. The UAB transfer is a big reason why the Hoosiers started off 4-0 this year and will be going bowling for the first time in five years.
According to reports, Howard is expected to declare for the Draft in the coming days. Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting first broke the news via Twitter.

He rushed for more than 1,200 yards and nine touchdowns while missing some time with injuries this year. He has gone for nearly 3,700 yards and 24 touchdowns in his three-year career.
Had Howard not got injured against Ohio State earlier this season, the Hoosiers probably would have pulled off a huge upset over the Buckeyes. With the success Tevin Coleman is having with the Atlanta Falcons this year, I’m sure teams would be jumping at the chance to have Howard.
