BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price is forgoing his senior year with the Tigers and won’t play in the upcoming Texas Bowl against Kansas State on Jan. 4.

Davis-Price shared the news via Twitter on Friday, Dec. 31, and he talked exclusively with WAFB’s Jacques Doucet on his decision to enter the upcoming NFL Draft.

“I’m going to miss y’all man, but it was a decision I had to make for my family and you know I thought it was the best decision,” Davis said. “I prayed to God about it he always leads me in the right direction.”

Earlier this season, he broke the LSU single-game rushing record, running for a staggering 287 yards and three touchdowns in a 49-42 win over Florida in Tiger Stadium. He’s also made 10 catches for 64 more yards.
