CORVALLIS -- One of the most accomplished running backs in Oregon State history will not be adding anything new to the record books filled with his name. The redshirt junior announced Tuesday he would forego his final season of NCAA eligibility and declare for the NFL Draft. 

He becomes the third Beaver running back in program history to declare for the draft before their final year of eligibility. He joins Steven Jackson (2004) and Jacquizz Rodgers (2010). He finishes his career with a 5.8 yards per carry average, which is tied for a program record. 

He also ranks in the top 10 in total rushing yards (2,216), rushing touchdowns (24) and 100-yard games (9). 

Nall was able to build on his success in 2017 despite the fact he played for three different head coaches in his career and had to shoulder the load on offense with an Oregon State team that finished last in the Pac-12 in passer rating in each of his three seasons.
